The highlight of the show was the debut of the Kindness Song, “Kindness is in Me” by Lorraine Tan, specially commissioned by the Singapore Kindness Movement.

Ground-up initiatives that have championed kindness over the past year were honoured as part of the Kindred Spirit Circle at the event. Among those recognised were Diamonds on the Street, a group that brings hope to vulnerable communities by teaching them skills related to music and drama, and the organisers of The Hawker Sessions, an initiative which raises funds for the less privileged through its makan fundraisers at local hawker centres. The affirmation of their organic efforts to bring kindness to the community inducted them into the circle which was started in 2013.

SKM encourages everyone and organisations to join Kindness Day SG in the coming years, not only on the day itself, but also throughout the year to fuel the kindness spirit in Singapore. SKM hopes Kindness Day SG will serve as a reminder, celebration, and continuing encouragement of kindness.

Kindness Day SG will return annually on the last Friday of May, coinciding with the conclusion of Term 2 of the academic calendar.
