Whether you’re young or old, you’ll remember Hello Kitty as one of the most lovable characters, and she is in Cape Town to continue her worldwide initiative! The #OneKindThing campaign hopes to encourage young people to do random acts of kindness for others that don’t cost a thing.
Global Icon Hello Kitty recently launched a worldwide initiative, the Hello Kitty #OneKindThing Campaign which has just arrived in Cape Town.
This initiative is aimed at making people aware of just how powerful kindness can be in the world. The old adage that kindness doesn't cost you anything is true and Hello Kitty is leading the way on this journey of benevolence, which is all about encouraging kinds to carry out random acts of kindness.
The campaign has consisted of Hello Kitty calling upon fans - old and new - to take part in an act of kindness, with the key message of the campaign being to encourage South Africa's youth to 'do one kind thing for someone. Pay it Forward and join the movement'. Since launch, the social media uptake has been phenomenal, with over 22 000 followers on Facebook all taking heed and interacting with Hello Kitty on the platform.
This campaign has extended into schools and malls and this month, Hello Kitty will be bringing kindness to Cape Gate which will host a Kindness Tree giving kids the opportunity to clip on their 'kindness leaves' (representing an act of kindness) and be part of Hello Kitty's Kindness Journey.
