Can we end the worst year in living memory on a high and celebrate kindness?
Can you help us end the worst year in living memory on a high?
Yes, it’s been the toughest of times, with many losing loved ones and Covid-19 turning everything upside down. Yet, good things emerged – recognising unsung heroes, relationships, community spirit and unexpected acts of kindness.
Together we can turn the Twixtmas break – the usually duller period in the festive calendar – as a special time to celebrate the precious things in life – our families, friends and community, shared interests, supporting each other and growing a kinder, more purposeful life.
And it’s easy, needn’t cost any money and by just by doing five simple things you can help grow kindness
It’s a completely non-commercial effort. No one is making money out of it.
We all have immense potential to make use of untapped resource, energy, and opportunities.
We are a group of volunteers, inspired by the new social enterprise Grow Social Capital, who want to do something positive.
We are providing the initial spark by creating a platform and programme to celebrate the things that 2020 has been good for – greater kindness with unsung heroes and communities coming together to help and support each other -as well as preparing people for a tough year ahead in 2021, coping with Covid-fatigue and more.
Using the #TwixtmasKindness banner, we are asking good people like you to do something, no matter how small, to spread the Twixtmas kindness. The five- day Twixtmas break is a prime opportunity to help people live a bigger life. The break is where people are ‘time rich’ instead of ‘time poor’
There’s five easy-to-do-and-share things, taking tiny step practical actions to make their world better in some way including:
- Do something to celebrate the unsung heroes or friends in your life
- Do something for yourself – reflect and respect upon the good things you discovered about yourself in 2020
- Do something for the environment
- Do something for your community
- Do something to make you fitter, healthier, more purposeful
You can show your support – remember we are not asking for any money, badge something you are doing as a Twixtmas event, or think of something completely new to celebrate and grow the #TwixtmasKindness.

We hope you think the #TwixtmasKindness idea is a good one. Do something to join in the effort to grow kindness.
