February 17, also known as Random Act of Kindness Day, is a day to practice kindness and pay it forward. We want your help to spread kindness on Kent Island! Be kind to a stranger today. Do something nice for someone.
Random Acts of Kindness Day began in 1995 in Denver, Colorado by a nonprofit organization called The Random Acts Of Kindness Foundation. Since then, observance of the holiday became more and more widespread.
Random Acts of Kindness Day may not have been around for a very long time, but kindness has existed throughout human history. There are great examples of prominent figures in history who have made an impact through their selfless acts of kindness — Princess Diana, the Dalai Lama, and Mother Teresa, to name a few. Various studies have also proved that kindness is undoubtedly an inherent part of nature, with feelings of care developing in humans while they’re still babies.
