Today, November 13, is World Kindness Day. World Kindness Day is an international observance introduced in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement, a coalition of nations kindness NGOs.
As we celebrate this day around the world, why don’t you take a moment to remember a kind act someone has done for you. Nothing is too small.
I can never forget this beautiful young girl I met in Kebbi State early this year. She was a recipient of the free VVF Repair Surgery carried out by the Extended Hands Foundation and sponsored by NNPC/SNEPCo. Myself and my team went to hospital to see the recipients after their successful surgeries and when she saw me, she presented me with this lovely set of bangles and a neck piece which she made herself. It was so beautiful and I was deeply touched by her kindness. She didn’t have to give me anything but she did in addition to expressing her gratitude. She’s such a sweet girl who had been through a traumatic experience, yet she was so kind and generous. I’ll never forget her.
Have you been touched by someone’s kindness? Have you been kind to someone recently? What was the kind act you received or gave? Let’s share.
I can’t wait to read your stories!
