Why Kindness Week?

We have chosen kindness because of its singular ability to unlock our shared humanity. Kindness strengthens relationships, develops community and deepens solidarity. It is a cornerstone of our individual and collective mental health. Wisdom from every culture across history recognises that kindness is something that all human beings need to experience and practise to be fully alive.  

It is a known fact that one act of kindness can lead to many more. This is the type of chain reaction that we hope to inspire the whole of our Bond community as we discover our connection to each other and extend kindness to ourselves.
