Kindness Scotland is a Registered Charity organised
by a committee of 6 people.
For World Kindness Day, arranging Kind Kids Awards
and other projects, we have the assistance of a number
of willing volunteers.
Over the years we have been invited to participate
in a number of radio programmes and interviews with
newspapers and that publicity helps to spread information
and to catch the interest of members of the public.
During the interviews pretty challenging questions
were asked about how ‘Kindness’ was relevant
in the world today and we were able to provide examples
of people all over the country and in a variety of
situations who responded to difficulties with quite
unexpected acts of kindness, showing that kindness
is part of our everyday lives and that most people
act in a kind way when faced with difficult situations.
The ‘Kind Kids Awards’ scheme was launched
in 2005 in a number of schools – this does exactly
what it says – awards kind children with certificates
and recognises their acts of kindness for others to
admire. Information on the scheme can be found on
our Kind Kids Awards page together with details of
some of the children’s acts of kindness. We
plan to launch ‘Kind Scots Awards’ in
the near future. If you would like to join the scheme,
please contact us –
we will be delighted to talk to you.
