Why be kind
Being kind to ourselves and others helps us feel better. Our physical and mental health improve, our relationships with others improve, and we have a better view of the world around us. Kindness also helps reduce negativity, decrease violence and bullying in schools and the workplace, increase self-confidence, and makes us more aware of the world around us.

How can I get involved?
The Be Kind 330 campaign is ever-evolving, and there will be a variety of structured activities throughout the year. But you can start today by being kind to yourself. Be kind to others even when it is hard to do so, and look for ways to perform simple acts of kindness for others.

Ways to be kind
  • Give a compliment.
  • Smile and say hello.
  • Hold a door open.
  • Do a good deed.
  • Volunteer.
  • Say thank you.
  • Let someone go ahead of you.
