Doodle for Google
This year’s Doodle for Google theme is:
“I SHOW KINDNESS BY...”
Friendship, smiles, thank yous, and hugs.
But kindness is so much more than just being nice. This year’s theme invites you to tell us how you show kindness. Is it by helping around your home? Volunteering in your community’s green space? Maybe it’s comforting someone who’s down, or picking up trash in the park.
However you define it, let us know how you bring a little bit more kindness into the world. Take your ideas and bring them to life in your doodle!
