National Love Is Kind Day

National Love is Kind Day is a holiday observed every July 27th, celebrated in various ways. Its initial purpose is to celebrate the victims of domestic abuse who have freed themselves from their abusers, to highlight the problem of domestic abuse in the U.S., and to give voice to those still suffering from domestic abuse.

It’s also a day to remember those who weren’t so fortunate in escaping their abusers and have suffered or died as a result. No matter how this holiday is observed, everyone should use this day to treat each other with the love and respect they deserve as human beings.

The History of National Love Is Kind Day

This day was created by Rosie and Sunny Aiello of the Love is Kind Network. They established the network in 2018 to spread the message of love and kindness and to work towards ending domestic violence. The following year, they created National Love is Kind Day to spread their message worldwide.
