Highlighting Your Brand With Be Kind to Humankind Week
 
Have you ever heard of "Be Kind to Humankind Week(BK2HW)before?"It’s a lovely concept that is observed every year in the last week of August, from the 25th to the 31st. Many companies across the USA have been observing this week for years with positive results.

Here’s why you should observe BK2HW:

# To earn the goodwill of clients
# To get your brand noticed by the local community
# To help spread awareness of ailments and social evils

BK2HW: The Origins

This event has an interesting history behind it. It all started way back in 1988 when a young woman named Lorraine Jara spotted a distressing article in the newspaper. A boat with 2 people was having a difficult time staying afloat. Another boat with 2 men passed by at the same time – they had a radio but refused to help the people in distress, leaving them to their fate.

Through "BK2HW", Lorraine hopes to help people adopt a more caring stance towards people in need. 

How should BK2HW Be Celebrated?
BK2HW is usually observed by splitting each day of the week into easily recognizable occasions. The goal is to ensure participants have a caring task for each day. This helps them remember the importance of being kind while leading their daily lives.

1.Motorist Consideration Monday
2.Touch-a-Heart Tuesday
3.Willing to Lend a Hand Wednesday
4.Thoughtful Thursday
5.Forgive Your Foe Friday
