Welcome to the Kids’ Kindness Club!
Being kind is the best thing you can be. So we’ve created a Kindness Club just for kids. If you haven’t already, click here to join the club (it’s free!) and you will receive our fortnightly Kindness Club email.
Greig is chatting about International Day of Happiness, helping us to think about how we can be more mindful, grateful and kind.
Another reason to press play is to see Ned Kindelbottom bringing yo hot-off-the-press Kind News! Did you know that simply hearing kind stories helps us to feel happier?!

KIND STORY OF THE WEEK
This month, 13 year old Max from Devon ended his three-year camping challenge to raise money for the North Devon hospice. He raised over a whopping £700,000 for the hospice that cared for his neighbour, by sleeping in his tent nearly every night. He was nicknamed “The Boy in the Tent”. His poorly neighbour gave Max his tent and told him to have an adventure in it. Well, Max certainly did that – what an inspiration he is.

This week, we are reading a book called Kindness Means. It is full of ideas about how to be even more kind. Which idea will you try this week to spread kindness?
With thanks to author Natalia Simons. The book can be purchased here.
