“Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.” ― Lucius Annaeus Seneca

In a world where the news is filled daily with tragedies, injustices, and strife of one kind or another, we tend to forget the enormous impact that even the smallest act of kindness can have. In celebrating World Kindness Day November 13th, we hope to remind ourselves (and our readers) of the power in warm gestures, volunteering, and simply being kind to one another.
