What's happening in February?

7 February

Don't just think about your friends, write to them! Whether an ecard, a store bought card or a homemade one, reach out to a friend and make their day.

The origins of this day are not known, but it's celebrated every year. Take the opportunity to meet someone new by taking a chance and just saying hello to someone in the park, or join an interest group. New friends can open up new horizons and opportunities and are one of life's valuable assets.

11–17 February

Celebrate this day in any way you feel! From something small to something large, feel the power of an act of kindness. The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation spread the celebrations over a week, from 11-17, so why not try one kind act each day?
