The Kindness App

In this day an age, many people get confronted by unkind messages, its one of the pitfalls of being in a society where the internet is at our fingertips, unkind messages are never pleasant!.

 Being kind to one another reduces stress levels. :)

Kindness App.

A new Twitter app hopes to combat negativity online, after nearly half the nation revealed they have seen or received unkind messages on social media.

Hello Kitty is campaigning for the nation to do #OneKindThing, whether by using the #OneKindThing app to share messages of kindness on social media, or via small acts of kindness.

Users sign up via Twitter, the free web application then shares friendly messages on their Twitter feed, helping inspire others to also do #OneKindThing for a friend or stranger. Users are able to share a Hello Kitty image alongside the post, or change their profile photo and cover picture to show support. Tweeters are then encouraged to share posts and retweet to help spread kindness far and wide on social media.

According to scientific research, being kind to others can elevate endorphins, as well as releasing hormones to reduce stress levels[2].Coinciding with Hello Kitty’s campaign for kindness this summer, the new app encourages Brits to continue to do one kind thing and improve their health in the process.

Clara Wooller, Hello Kitty Brand Manager, said: ‘People who are kind to their friends, family and strangers become happier and healthier in the long run. These simple acts of kindness can benefit the heart, reduce anxiety and make everyone a much happier human being. Our country flourishes when people look out for each other and that is what Hello Kitty hopes to inspire with the One Kind Thing campaign.’
