Every one of us experiences the world differently - we have different worries and problems, and we all have unique hopes and dreams - but there's one thing that can unite us and make the world a better place, and that's KINDNESS!
Kindness is cool! No, really! Kindness can create positive change in all our lives. Whether it's being a friend to someone who seems lonely, or simply smiling or giving somebody a thumbs up. When we support each other, we can be our best selves.
Be the Change: Be Kind is your handbook on how to use your own voice to empower yourself and others to spread kindness. Award-winning children's author Marcus Sedgwick tells the story of kindness - where it comes from, what it feels like and perhaps most importantly why it matters - and asks YOU what you would do in different everyday scenarios.
