To celebrate World Kindness Day on Friday 13 November, HELLO! is teaming up with AllBright, a private members' club that is focused on creating networking opportunities for women in business, to launch our very first HELLO! Kindness Summit. And we have a really exciting roster of top celebrities and life coaches involved!
Kindness is at the heart of HELLO!'s DNA and it has never been more important to living modern life, whether that is through championing the new generation, carrying out small acts of generosity in our communities, or learning self-care techniques that will help us be kinder to ourselves, especially during this extraordinarily challenging year.
The Duchess of York will talk to Rosie Nixon about kindness and her experience with trolling
This day-long virtual event will inspire you, our loyal readers, to spread kindness in your communities and careers – and in yourself.

In addition, on this day, HELLO! will publish our first Kind List – a collection of the world's kindest entertainers, royals, sports heroes, fashion stars and female trailblazers – to shine a light on those who are unfailingly mindful, thoughtful and generous in everything they do.
