Everyday Kindness is a charity anthology of short, fictional stories of kindness, edited by L J Ross and published through her imprint, Dark Skies Publishing. These uplifting tales of hope and of small, everyday kindnesses are intended to be read daily, through the course of a year, to support wider, positive mental health goals and foster wellbeing through the act of reading tales of goodwill inspired by others. Featuring authors across the spectrum of literature, some international bestsellers and award-winning writers amongst them, this is a unique collection of words to inspire hope, in direct response to the Covid-19 crisis.
All proceeds from the book will be donated to Shelter, a charity that helps millions of people a year struggling with bad housing or homelessness.
