World Kindness Day is an international movement, introduced in 1998 by a coalition of nations’ kindness NGO’s (Non-Government Organizations). It was first formed in 1997 by Tokyo Conference of like minded kindness organizations. Many other countries and organizations started to follow close behind this movement, incorporating other NGOs that supported the same message.
