It’s Kindness Month!

The made-up event we all definitely need

We admit it: We made up Kindness Month.

But we hope this video shows you why we think it’s so important right now. At the PAN Foundation, most of our work is aimed at improving physical health, but the current mental health crisis has thrown a spotlight on problems like depression and anxiety.

Being kind is good for everybody.

It’s great for the person whose day you make through your kindness.

And it’s great for you because being kind and helpful has been proven to increase your own sense of well-being.

A little kindness isn’t going to solve all the world’s problems. We know that. But when we recognize that everybody has their own burdens and try to make the journey easier for each other, well, small things do add up.
