Get Involved In #KindnessDay 2016!

Kindness Day

The Diana Award and Penguin Random House have teamed up for a second year to host Kindness Day 2016.

Kindness Day is inspired by the best-selling novel, ‘Wonder’, which teaches us all the importance of kindness and how random acts of kindness can change someone’s life.

Kindness Day 1

‘Wonder’ is a book about Auggie, a 10 year old boy who likes doing normal 10 year old things. But Auggie does not look like other “normal” kids. The book shares his experience of joining Secondary School and shows us how small acts of kindness can have a huge impact on an individual’s life and re-inforce to them that it is okay to be them.

This Kindness Day we are asking you to join us in helping make the world a kinder place and help kids like Auggie feel accepted. Kindness is free and something we are all capable of so why not get your school, friends, organisation, family or office to celebrate Kindness Day today!

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
