Tuesday celebrated what the world needs a little more of: Kindness.

November 13 marks the observance of” World Kindness Day,” which is dedicated to committing acts of good faith and establishing connections with other people of the global community.

“The goal is that we hope kindness is spread every day of the year, but World Kindness Day is a day we can be a little bit louder about our kindness,” said Brooke Jones, vice president of the Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Foundation.

RAK is one of the original founding members of the World Kindness Movement (WKM), an organization with 28 member countries around the world, including Mexico, China, France and Canada.

According to Jones and the WKM website, World Kindness Day was born out of the organization’s 1998 conference in Tokyo.

“You’re kind you’re helping the other person, but you’re also helping yourself as well,” said Jones, who claimed she was making her way out of the office Tuesday evening to hand out hot coffee and treats to unsuspecting individuals in downtown Denver.

Since the Tuesday morning, people both real and fictional, took to social media to spread the message of good cheer.

“Happy #WorldKindnessDay! Don’t forget that something as small as a smile or saying hello to a friend can make a big difference to others,” said the famous character Hello Kitty out of her U.S. Twitter account.
