Why kindness will bloom for everyone on November 13
It's not every day a stranger presses a beautiful flower into your hand for nothing but a smile.
But Belfast bus passengers were delighted when they were presented with an unexpected pink rose in advance of World Kindness Day next Thursday.
It is hoped that the gifts will inspire travellers to embrace the day's celebration and make kidness a greater part of their daily lives.
The day encourages the celebration and promotion of kindness in all its forms across the globe.
The flowers show the pleasure random acts of kindness can give unsuspecting strangers.
Businesses, schools and individuals have embraced the generous day by making pledges to commit an act of kindness.
