Chris Gregory recently contacted us about the Kindness event which is taking place on 10th November at ICC. Lots of random acts of kindness are planned on the day, there will be free arts and crafts sessions, music, free sessions from holistic therapists...you can even pledge your act of kindness on the Birmingham Kindness tree and get a free hug.
Chris told us that “We want to scatter kindness, “I’m looking forward to being part of something that is going to support people in need that makes people feel good and is going to be great fun.”
The motto for the inaugural Birmingham event is ‘Kindness costs nothing yet its value is priceless’. It will take place just a few days before World Kindness Day on 13 November.
“Clearly, we recognise that the 10th is also ‘Remembrance Sunday’,” says Jacqui, “and we hope many of those taking part in the service in Centenary Square will come and join us afterwards.” The quote that sums up the selflessness of kindness for Jacqui is Kevin Heath’s: “Wherever there is a human in need, there is an opportunity for kindness and to make a difference”.
Kindness Birmingham is a not-for-profit organisation. Financial donations from members of the public and sponsorship from heart-centred companies are therefore welcomed to help fund this groundbreaking event via their website.
Wouldn’t the world be a better place if there were more acts of kindness?
