Happy World Kindness Day, everyone! This is a very special and globally celebrated day throughout countries around the world. Created by the World Kindness Movement, November 13th is dedicated to spreading kindness and showing compassion to one another. With all of the chaos that is going on around the world and in our daily lives, today is a day to stop and appreciate what we have and the people in our lives.
Here are some simple ways to be kind to one another:
- Send a nice text message to a friend or family member
- Hold the door for a stranger
- Donate to a good cause
Caring for one another is something that intrinsically connects us all as human beings. It is what bridges the gaps between cultures and nations worldwide. This international holiday is the perfect opportunity to show others that you care not just today, but every day.
We encourage you to celebrate World Kindness Day by donating to refugees in Greece. Many refugees have faced traumatic experiences because they have been forced from their homes and have lost everything they owned. By donating, you are showing an appreciation and compassion towards your global family.
On March 11th, the World Health Organization (WHO) deemed the Coronavirus as a worldwide pandemic, causing wide-spread panic. The WHO urges everyone to stay clean and avoid large crowds. Unfortunately, there are currently 36,000 refugees placed into overcrowded and unsanitary refugee camps meant to hold only 6,200 people in Greece. This creates a place for the Coronavirus to fester and spread faster and become more aggressive. With a donation of just $25.00, you can help refugees get sanitizing supplies and help Embrace Relief place more refugee families in safe housing.
