Power of kindness

As the UK faces a global coronavirus pandemic, things can feel a little uncertain and even overwhelming. But, during these difficult times, one thing is clear: small acts of kindness make a difference. 


Across the country, there has been an outpouring of kindness and as children you can play your role too. By understanding what we can all do to help tackle this virus, we’ll gain a sense of stability and resilience.  


The power of kindness calendar will help you to learn about and carry out kind acts. 


Perhaps you will be more helpful at home, write to a relative or think about how you can safely help someone in the community. 


The British Red Cross have also come up with ten suggestions for kind activities you could add to the calendar to get you started:


  • write or draw what kindness means to you
  • check in on neighbours in a safe way – perhaps, put a note through their door
  • write a letter to say thank you to a key worker group - if you email it to me I will make sure that they get it
  • write a postcard for an elderly member of the local community who you know has to stay at home. Share with them how you are keeping yourself busy. Ask a parent to push it through the letterbox whilst out for a walk 
  • call or write to a relative
  • draw a rainbow and put it in your window to show hope
  • write down three things you are grateful for
  • do something helpful for a friend or family member – help lay the table or could you keep their bedroom tidy?
  • send a message to your class teacher to cheer them up
  • stay at home - by following this advice you are being kind to others in the community and helping to save lives.


Ask your parents to share your kind acts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #PowerofKindness and @BritishRedCross
