History and Origin of World Kindness Day
World Kindness Day evolved from a series of conferences in 1996-1997 in Japan by a group known as the World Kindness Movement. These conferences brought together groups interested in promoting more kindness around the world. It culminated in the “Declaration of Kindness” on November 13, 1997. With this declaration, a new and very special day was born.
