We celebrate days dedicated to historical events or renowned persons who have made significant contributions to society throughout the year. On November 13, however, we honour a quality, an action that can make a significant difference in the lives of many people. World Kindness Day is on Saturday.

The event has grown in popularity over the years, with a rising number of individuals, schools, organisations, institutions, and businesses participating.
