If you haven’t heard of World Kindness Day, it’s pretty much what it sounds like; an international day that encourages us all to be a little bit kinder to each other. Established in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement, World Kindness Day is celebrated every year on 13th November.  

We considered several options for spreading kindness amongst our customers; a surprise discount code, an exciting giveaway or even some hidden treats in our sample packs – after all, who doesn’t like a good freebie!   

But after thinking on it some more, we agreed it was the perfect opportunity to give back to those in need.  

Having recently partnered with homeless charity, Simon on the Streets, we were very aware of their incredible work supporting people in West Yorkshire who are homeless and struggling. Knowing that their fantastic fundraising team are always in need of help, we felt there was no one better to support. 

We pledged to donate 5% of the cost of every order we received on 13th November 2023, in honour of World Kindness Day.  

The amount raised was revealed in early December and we were delighted to be able to give a total of £3,650!  

We received a lovely response from the fundraising team at Simon on the Streets, who said, “Wow, what an absolutely incredible donation towards the Christmas Appeal. That will make a huge difference to our charity and the whole team at Simon on the Streets sends their gratitude to everyone at Luxury Flooring and Furnishings 😊” 

As we begin another year, we’re still committed to supporting Simon on the Streets as much as we can. Whether we’re lacing up our trainers for a sponsored run or tucking into some tasty treats at a bake sale, we can’t wait to see how much more we can raise in 2024!
