Today, Sunday 13 November marks World Kindness Day, with this year’s theme being ‘make kindness the norm’.
All it takes is a genuine compliment, shouting someone a coffee, or taking some baked goods to share at work and you can start a flow-on effect. Whatever you choose, go slightly outside your comfort zone to make someone else’s day.
If you’re looking to support a charity to inject some extra kindness and meaning into your norm, workplace giving is always a great idea. You can do it alone, or get your workplace involved to donate from your pre-tax salary. By donating to The One Box you are enabling a family experiencing hardship to receive weekly deliveries of fresh produce and staples and restoring dignity and hope. Your donation not only offers families comfort and security but also regular connections with their community.
A workplace giving program can be set up directly through your workplace’s payroll system or alternatively, through the free payroll platform Good2Give. Learn more about how you can make an impact at www.theonebox.org.au/get-involved/workplace-giving.
