International Care and Kindness week
International Care and Kindness Week was created by Pilot International to bring awareness to how simple acts can change a day, a life, or the world simply by showing someone you care. During this special week, Pilot Club members throughout the world will engage in numerous activities to emphasize and encourage kindness, caring, and general good will to all.
This could mean giving little “Pick Me Ups” to strangers, family, and friends, or encouraging family members to put down their devices and communicate with each other during mealtimes. Pilots spread the news that caring for one another means really engaging with one another. Put down your phone and pick up someone’s hand.
Although Pilot and Anchor Clubs perform Pick Me Ups for family caregivers in their communities throughout the year, special emphasis is also placed on this signature program during International Care and Kindness Week.
