It's Kindness Week from Dec 5 to 11, so go ahead and be nice!
Have you been kind to someone today? Because if you haven't there's still time — Kindness Week will be celebrated from December 5-11 and Kindness Day on December 8.
A small organisation spearheaded by Vile Parle resident Vasant Kalbag started the concept with the message —Kindness Unlimited.
"A week like this is celebrated internationally, we decided to celebrate it locally too. During the Kindness Week, we plan to hold various activities.
Apart from sending out posters and flyers, we also plan to hold an activity which we call 'Pass It On'. This will have us giving out cards to students in various schools and asking them to do three kind acts.
Of the three acts, one must be directed towards oneself, the second for the environment and the third for a stranger," says Kalbag. "Also each day has a specific quality to it like — forgiveness, tolerance, etc," he says.
Lopa Vyas, a trustee of the group says that a little kindness goes a long way. "Besides school children, we are also planning to take the initiative to various colleges and corporate houses," she says.
