Day of spontaneous manifestation of kindness
Remember, if a person expects gratitude for his kindness, it cannot be considered true kindness.
The day of spontaneous acts of kindness (Random Acts of Kindness Day), celebrated around the world every year on February 17 – one of the recent initiatives of international charities. This holiday traces its history from the United States, but today has global significance and is celebrated regardless of nationality, ethnicity and religious beliefs.

He’s most known in Western Europe and in the US, where this Day in many cities traditionally held charity events and marathons, with the participation of famous actors, politicians and public figures. In Ukraine this holiday is still very little known, although a number of companies organize this day various charity events .
Most importantly on this day, as we call the organizers, you should try to be kind to all. And not just good, but infinitely kind and unselfish.
Remember, if a person expects gratitude for his kindness, it cannot be considered true kindness. You don’t have to rely on the fact that will witness the joy of others and hear their praise. Good deeds themselves should bring you pleasure, and at the same time, giving something to others or helping them, you should not expect rewards. That is the real kindness.
Few in these troubled times is capable of such “feats” – in a state of fatigue and irritation from the pressing concerns we often indifferently pass by other people’s problems until they affect us. And then we seek the support and participation of the people for whom the “disinterested aid”, “charity” and “compassion” – not just words, but the meaning of life, became calling.
