The Week - Junior - - Over To You -

Mon­day 13 Novem­ber is World Kind­ness Day, when peo­ple around the globe are en­cour­aged to be kind to oth­ers. Do­ing some­thing kind is easy – it’s as sim­ple as smil­ing at oth­ers, of­fer­ing to help or giv­ing some­one a com­pli­ment. What mat­ters is that what you do makes a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence to some­one else. The film Won­der, which is re­leased in the UK on 1 De­cem­ber, is based on a novel by R.J. Palacio and has the theme of kind­ness at its heart. The story cen­tres on Au­gust Pull­man, a boy whose face is dis­fig­ured, and his strug­gle to fit in at school. It demon­strates how a lit­tle kind­ness can make an enor­mous dif­fer­ence, and change lives for the bet­ter. The bril­liant thing about be­ing kind is that one act of kind­ness will of­ten in­spire an­other – kind­ness is in­fec­tious. We’d love to know about the im­pact of kind­ness in your life – whether it’s some­thing you’ve done, or some­thing that has been done for you. Tell us at hello@the­weekju­nior.co.uk
