Celebrate Kindness Week Feb. 14-19, 2022

In recognition of National Kindness Week, which runs from Feb. 13-19, the City of Beverly Hills’ Human Relations Commission has announced a host of inspirational virtual and in-person outdoor activities all week long. Kindness Week activities kickoff Feb. 13 at the Beverly Hills Farmers’ Market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with a booth sponsored by the Human Relations Commission where visitors can fill out “kindness is” postcards, and share what kindness means to them with a photo in front of the Kindness Week Step & Repeat banner.

“Kindness Week is an annual event that we celebrate in Beverly Hills in which we encourage the community to demonstrate acts of kindness, whether it’s for their neighbor or someone they don’t know,” said Beverly Hills Mayor Bob Wunderlich. “Just the simple act of making someone else smile goes a long way.”

Kindness Week events continue on Feb. 14, with the Human Relations Commissioners and the Beverly Hills Active Adult Club distributing roses for Valentine’s Day to senior residents along with pick-up meals at Roxbury Park.

On Feb. 15, the Beverly Hills Public Library presents Kindness Storytime, where Human Relations Commissioners will narrate stories about kindness at the Civic Center Plaza next to the library. On Feb. 16, a free in-person self-care and intuitive healing class will be hosted by Erica Felsenthal, Ph.D. at 8 a.m. at Roxbury Park in front of the basketball courts.

Other events include filling out your own “kindness is” postcard with Human Relations Commissioners on Feb. 17 at Beverly Canon Gardens from 1-3 p.m., sharing on social media ways to do something kind for the environment, and engaging with a service provider or organization and sharing it online. Participants are encouraged to use the hashtag #BHKindness.

“Kindness Week has been a cornerstone of the Human Relations Commission for the past several years to promote positive human relations in all aspects of community life,” said Human Relations Commission Chair Rhoda Sharp. “We invite every member of this community to support an environment where civility, respect and responsible actions prevail.”
