It emphasizes on the power of kindness and how it brings individuals all across together. The pandemic has made everyone more considerate, and people are coming forward, extending kindness and making these troubled times endurable. The ethos of the campaign is to shine a light on these compassionate warriors sparking a change by acknowledging their gestures that have a wide impact. The idea is not just to provide a recognition platform but also support the cause, encourage others to do their bit, and invoke a sense of community spirit within everyone. I am proud of all the kindness crusaders and thankful for associating with us through #UnitedByCause”.
