On #WorldKindnessDay, I wanted to give serious consideration to HOW @JohnLewisRetail Christmas ad #TheBeginner communicates its message of welcome & love, which has proven to mean so much to the Care Experienced Community but others have mocked. So here's a THREAD. @whocaresscot
2. I had thought maybe it wd be overkill to offer one of my analyses of #TheBeginner - a bit obvious, a bit overegging t story - until I read t depressing analysis frm @stuheritage in @guardian, which @RebekahPierre92 found so hurtful. Changed my mind.
3. HOW do they manage to pull heart strings? What components are needed to tell a story abt welcomng relatnships?Maybe its not so obvious.
Well, first: EFFORT. At .06, ths new foster dad is willing to put himself out, endure pain, for a child. Lots of childrn never expernce that.

Today is #WorldKindnessDay.

While the world of politics involves a lot of debate and disagreement, this doesn’t mean it ought to turn a blind eye to gratuitous attacks and pile-ons.

But try telling that to this government. 1/
People blame social media for the unkindness that dominates our political discourse. But the tone is set at the very top and in this Government, positive examples of kind and responsible - or even civil - political discourse are rare. 2/

How kind are people in different parts of the world? In 2015, @Gallup asked a sample of ~1000 people aged 15+ in 145 countries, whether, in the past month, they had given money or time or helped a stranger. Here's some of the 2015 results #WorldKindnessDay…
🇲🇲 92% of people in Myanmar donated money to charity, largely down to the country’s Buddhist practice of Sangha Dana, which encourages donations. This practice is shared by Thailand, which came second. Malta came third and the UK fourth
🇲🇲 Myanmar also topped the poll for volunteering – 50% of people in the country volunteered their time. In 2015, Myanmar was the first country to score highest in two measures of giving since the survey began

Our hearts are w/our neighbors suffering because of the #CampFire in Butte County right now. Having been evacuated for 18 days from our home during the #CarrFire, I hope this thread on what we learned might be helpful in the days and weeks ahead. 1/

It's #WorldKindnessDay
@nickynoo007 made the brilliant suggestion to #KillBrexitWithKindness

Release the #BrexitImpactReports #StopBrexit #revokeA50forthwith #FBPE
