This calendar is part of a sequence of monthly action calendars following on from our original Kindness Calendar which was downloaded and used by nearly 2 million people in December 2017. 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.
