World Kindness Day – November 13th 2023

Our lovely Hayley shares her thoughts on what kindness means to Magrathea…

November 13th is World Kindness Day, a day celebrated across the world to promote the importance of being kind, not only to ourselves but to each other. In a world where there is so much suffering, hardship and strife, a little kindness goes a long way!

Some may ask- should there be a day dedicated to kindness? Shouldn’t we be kind every day? We have no idea what people are going through in their day to day lives, a small act of kindness, a simple “hello”, a smile or engaging in a conversation with a stranger could brighten someone’s day.

With all the negative news around the world at the moment, many may question their faith in humanity. World Kindness Day creates some focus on the importance of kindness and the difference it makes. If everyone of us was kind every day, the world would be a better place for us and future generations. As the saying goes “In a world where you can be anything…be kind.”

At Magrathea, we think it is important to show kindness wherever possible. We have a kindness calendar in the office which provides ideas on how we can spread kindness each day- not only in the work environment but within our daily lives.
