Thanks

This calendar follows on from our Kindness Calendar which was downloaded and used by nearly 2 million people in December 2017. Since then our monthly calendars have included Happy January, Friendly February, Mindful March, Active April, Meaningful May, Joyful June, Jump Back July, Altruistic August, Self-Care September and Optimitic October. You can find the full set of calendars here.

Thanks to Peter Harper for coming up with the original calendar idea and also to the many other kind and talented people who helped contribute the ideas and inspiration, especially Vanessa King, Val Payne and Alex Nunn who have provided invaluable input.

Many thanks also to the generous volunteers who have translated the calendars into other languages, including Jaber & Nailah Aljasmi (Arabic), Sevdzhi Eubova (Bulgarian), Janice Torkildsen (Chinese & Nepalese), Natalie Lui (Chinese), Dalibor Sever (Croatian), Laurence De Olivera & Windy Diakité (French), Yvonne Macasieb, Tobias Polzin & Ingrid Schäberle (German), Eva Fekete (Hungarian), Andrea Magnabosco (Italian), Narumi Isoda (Japanese), Ana Rute Costa (Portuguese), Natalya Kuznetsova (Russian), Vicenç Rul.lan (Spanish & Catalan), Ali Gülüm (Turkish) and Kate Rudenko (Ukranian).
