Kindness Blog

This series of blogs is designed to spark ideas for building on the positive things that already happen. I’m always on the look-out for new writers, especially from under-represented groups who don’t always get a chance to have their voices heard. If you’ve got an idea for a blog? You can send us your Kindness blog idea.

Connect globally through kindness

One of the reasons I set up Time for Kindness was to inspire people. I want to inspire those of us that believe in kindness already. And I want to inspire people who would like to believe in it but are unsure or embarrassed. Because sometimes being kind is portrayed as weak. Or carrying out […]
