Random Acts of Kindness Week
14 February, 2022 (All day) to 20 February, 2022 (All day)

Random Acts of Kindness Week takes place for one week each year, always taking place in mid-February. It's a week dedicated to kindness and taking that extra, conscious step to brighten somebody’s day.

It was created by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation with the intention of encouraging more harmony and kindness between people by offering thoughtful gestures of kindness, no matter how big or small. It's closely linked to Random Acts of Kindness Day, which is usually during the same time period as Random Acts of Kindness week.

A Random Act of Kindness could be surprising a colleague with coffee and a bagel, complimenting somebody on a job well done or placing a funny note in your child’s lunch box. There are so many ways that you can join in, spread some kindness and positivity and possibly make someone's day.

Who takes part in Random Acts of Kindness Week?

Organisations such as schools and offices often take part, taking steps to make kindness the norm and promote positive peer relationships.

Random Acts of Kindness Week and the associated Random Acts of Kindness Day increasingly feature prominently on social media, where hashtags and trends showcase the participants and beneficiaries of kind gestures.
