Chocology loves giving back in the world. Our Chocology Cares campaign speaks to that. That is why we are so excited about World Kindness Day, celebrated around the world next Sunday, November 13th.
Wikipedia says this about World Kindness Day:
“World Kindness Day is an international observance on 13 November. It was introduced in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement a coalition of nations kindness NGOs. It is observed in many countries, including Canada, Japan, Australia, Nigeria and United Arab Emirates.”
World Kindness Day is an international movement to spread kindness across our world. It has no political or religious connections. Chocology recognizes that kindness and giving back actually helps our communities to grow stronger and live better. We practice kindness in our everyday lives. We look for, notice, appreciate and try to emanate the good that we see. When we focus on the good, good things happen! Always!
At Chocology our bottom line is not always about profit. We embrace the people we come in contact with and try to make their lives happier as well. Our bottom line is only as good as the people we touch.
This past weekend, Madeline chose to hold a marshmallow challenge at our Port Jefferson Farmers Market for the children (and their parents and grandparents!) who visit us there. In order to participate, each person had to share an act of kindness that had touched his or her lives.
The responses were overwhelming. Kids remember the smallest of things. Here are just a few of the things our participants had to share:
“My teacher gave me an extra day to study for the test, since I had been sick and didn’t feel like studying.”
“My grandmother made my costume.”
“My mom was really nice when I broke her favorite bowl. She didn’t get mad at me like I thought she would.”
It takes so little to be kind. What will you do in honor of World Kindness Day? We’d love to hear about it. Please share in the comments, on Facebook or Tweet us your act of kindness or a kindness that was extended to you. It inspires us to hear your stories.
Here’s to a world filled with kind people! #ChocologyCares
