OUR MISSION & VISION
NATIONAL OTHERS WEEK IS SIMPLY ABOUT ‘OTHERS’. IT IS A WEEK, THE FIRST WEEK OF NOVEMBER EACH YEAR, TO FOCUS ON OTHERS. TO SIMPLY BE KIND.
It is a week, the first week of November each year, to focus on others. To simply be kind. Whilst kind may be at times simple, it is not insignificant. In fact kindness can change a life, can lighten a load, can brighten a day and can just make life better for both the giver and the receiver of the kind act. Kindness is the oil that keeps the community functioning with a positive sense of humanity. In its essence kindness builds community and that’s what National Others Week is about.
While we should be kind all year round, National Others Week is a time of intentional focus and promotion on acts of kindness.
The Bible says Love is Kind. This means that kindness is love in shoe leather. It’s Love in action.
The powerful thing about kindness is that it is a choice. We choose to be kind or we choose to be self-focused. National Others Week is about encouraging people to choose the Power of Kind and thereby change people’s lives and build community.
National Others Week is an initiative of Global Care, the Social Justice arm of the INC movement
