Today is World Kindness Day, a day that celebrates kindness and its power to connect People. At Southwest Airlines, we aim to celebrate civility and kindness on a daily basis, through our daily interactions with each other and with our Customers. We were founded on The Golden Rule—to treat others how you would like to be treated—and it still rings true each day.

 

 

As a way to celebrate World Kindness Day and to share stories of kindness, we partnered with our friend Leon Logothetis—The Kindness Guy—to create a special video series called “My Kind of News.” These videos highlight six stories in which people have gone above and beyond to make others feel loved. You can tune in to these videos by visiting Leon’s Facebook and Twitter accounts (@thekindnessguy). These videos will roll out throughout the day, so be sure to catch them all and share using #mykindofnews!

  • Flight Attendant Zach and Customer Cassandra serenade a flight and share their musical talents onboard.

  • Southwest Employees in Memphis made young Customer Trey feel as loved as possible as he flew home after aggressive cancer treatment.

  • Djameel, the grandson of a homeless man who offered Leon food, clothes, and a place to sleep for the night in “The Kindness Diaries” season one, feels the kindness of strangers who donated funds to support his education.

  • From humble beginnings, Raven Paris is changing the lives of the youth in Baltimore through education and giving a voice to those who felt lost.

  • When a Customer was trying to fly home to see a sick relative and couldn’t afford the flight, a kindness superhero—Customer Service Agent, Leonis—stepped in to save the day.

  • Anna shares the story of her second-grade teacher, Mrs. Jones, who changed her life forever through an act of kindness.


As we celebrate World Kindness Day, we invite you to join the conversation with some of your own experiences. Have a story about the kindness you’ve experienced that you’d like to share? Follow @thekindnessguy on Facebook or Instagram to tell your story and be entered for a chance to win round trip air travel for you and a guest on Southwest.
