About Kindness Day SG

Kindness Day SG was inaugurated in 2013 as an occasion for Singaporeans to come together in celebration of kindness and graciousness, to inspire one another and transform our society into a nation of kindness. Kindness Day SG is celebrated on the second last Friday of May.

Honorees this year

Over the years, many informal and self-organised groups have approached SKM to seek support for their self-initiated voluntary projects. These groups are affectionately called the Ground-up Movements (GUMs). Their projects promote the message of kindness to different communities or address more specific social issues. Check out our latest group of GUMs to be inducted into the Kindred Spirit Circle!

Corporate Kit

Our theme for 2016 is "Kindness, it's up to us". The choice to bring out our innate kindness always lies with every one of us. To help your company kick-start your KDSG celebration, we have created a corporate starter kit with information and materials that will guide you in organising Kindness Day activities.
