World Kindness Day

On November 13 as part of World Kindness Day, we are encouraged to spread kindness like an infectious cold. We want to share it more than usual because studies show when others observe kindness in action they are more likely to carry out an act of kindness, too.

National Thank A Mail Carrier Day
Feb 4 all-day

There is mail in your mailbox six days a week so let’s take time out of our day to thank the mail person who is responsible for getting it there! Thank A Mail Carrier Day (also known as Thank a Mailman Day) is always observed on February 4th.  It is a reminder of just how important mail carriers are to our everyday lives.
