The Kindness Pandemic


The Kindness Pandemic was established on 14th March, 2020 by Dr Catherine Barrett, to support people who lives are impacted by COVID19. The group grew to 550,000+ members in two weeks. Kindness won't make Coronavirus go away, but it is making many people's lives easier and bringing people hope. The Kindness Pandemic is underpinned by principles of Intersectional Kindness, or how we look out for people who were doing it tough before COVID19 and because of COVID19.
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to
​land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

The event will ask our group of over half a million people to reflect on what makes them 'Strong in Spirit".
The event will connect with ATSI families and young people to bring their experiences of the theme "Proud In Culture, Strong In Spirit".
We will promote the activities on this website and ask for people to post pics/reflections using these activities.
We will develop a webpage to hold the legacy of the celebration of this day to remind us all the importance of celebrating ATSI children and families.
This event is online through Facebook, to allow national input, including from regional and rural areas and those who are in lockdown across Australia.

The importance of celebrating our ATSI children and families is about intersectional kindness and growing awareness.
