#BEKIND21

#BeKind21 is an invitation for you to practice kindness toward yourself and others each day from September 1 to September 21 to build kinder, more connected communities that foster mental wellness. As of our kickoff in 2018, you’ll join a movement of over 200 partners, 7 million participants, and 160 million pledged acts of kindness on a mission to build a kinder, braver world that affirms and celebrates everyone for who they are. Learn more here.

Opt in to receive emails when you sign up and we’ll send you updates on #BeKind21 and messages from some of our amazing partners and special guests.

Keep scrolling to build your own custom #BeKind21 calendar and learn ways you can immediately start sharing kindness!
