The Weekly Challenge

The Weekly Challenge, 8th November 2021 – #KindnessByPost

This Saturday 13th November is World Kindness Day!  To celebrate, 64 Million Artists has partnered with Mental Health Collective, coordinators of the UK’s leading random act of kindness exchange, #KindnessByPost.  This week’s challenge is coming to you from Amy, Mental Health Collective’s Director, Amy and Cal, their Communications Manager.

 

Mental Health Collective’s #KindnessByPost project is like a great big secret santa for random acts of kindness. Across the UK, members of the public sign up to send a card or letter with a message of goodwill to someone they don’t know, and are allocated a person to send a card or letter to them. Mark World Kindness Day by registering for free for the Christmas #KindnessByPost exchange!
