WKD- 33 DAYS TO GO

 

The purpose of World Kindnessday is to highlight good deeds in the community because Kindness is the common thread that unities us all.

We can celebrate kindness day by reaching out for the needy around us like the indigent heart patients, the orphanage home, the blind, the deaf and dumb with gifts / financial assistance.

We can also do that by making everybody around us happy whether foes 0r pals.

Kindness is loving everyone and forgiving those that have wronged you, giving out for people and caring for the less privilege.

So here it comes again! November 13, 2018 Use the opportunity to put back Smile on the faces of indigent Heart patients.
