It’s cool to be kind! It’s World Kindness Day on Monday 13th November 2023 and this year’s theme is making kindness the norm. We’re big believers just a little bit of kindness can go a long way. Just a small gesture has the power to transform someone else’s day, so we like to do everything with that little bit of kindness in mind. If you’re a customer or follow us on social media, you’ll see that we regularly share little thoughtful illustrated posts about kindness, and we also pop them free as postcards in orders.
We’ve been blown away by the reaction to these and the fact that teachers have hung them up in classrooms, some of you have them up in your own offices, and we’ve even had some NHS trusts put them up in their hospital wards or give them to every member of staff! We regularly get messages asking if you can buy copies of these, so we thought we’d go one step further and make them available for free! Here are our most-requested kindness posts as saveable images AND downloadable posters! Scroll down to save or download them…
