Celebrate kindness in the whole month of May
It was inaugurated in 2013 as an occasion for Singaporeans to come together in celebration of kindness and graciousness. It is to inspire one another and transform our society into a nation of kindness. This day is celebrated as a day for showing appreciation to one another, with the iconic symbol of the yellow gerbera.
This celebration is even more important this year, as our focus is on the real heroes of this outbreak – frontliners, COVID-related support and non-profit groups, F&B staff, and even ordinary people who have helped in some way.
This year’s KDSG falls on Friday, 22nd May 2020. SKM is going virtually everywhere – all through the month of May – with a TikTok Dance Challenge, Instagram and Facebook AR Filters, a #StayAtHome Kindness Kit and a virtual Ground-up Movement (GUM) induction! As they say, kindness begins at home!
Here’s how to join the fun:
