We don’t need the details to spot kindness.

The sign for Reading station, the walls and door of the station’s coffee shop behind it.

On the way home after the CharityComms Inspiring Communicators awards at the end of February, I noticed a couple of people in front of me on the escalators at Reading station. One of them was profusely thanking the other, apparently for some information she’d told her.

I don’t know what it was, but it still made me smile to see the kindness between them. It then occurred to me that we don’t necessarily need to know the detail in order to understand that a kindness has taken place.

With that in mind – what kindness have you seen that you maybe didn’t have all the details for? Let us know.
