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 and now Active April.

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 Andrea Magnabosco (Italian), Windy Diakité (French), Vicenç Rul·lan (Spanish), Tobias Polzin & Ingrid Hack (German), Ana Rute Costa (Portuguese), Natalya Kuznetsova (Russian), Sevdzhi Eubova (Bulgarian), Kate Rudenko (Ukranian), Eva Fekete (Hungarian) and Janice Torkildsen (Chinese & Nepalese).
