A press release fell into my inbox this afternoon. It’s such a nice idea I wish I’d had it myself.
It’s a campaign to ‘Kiss the World Better’ to counter the tide of violent and cruel images on screens around the world. The kindness philosophy behind KissBank is based on scientific evidence that human genes for kindness and compassion are at the heart of our evolutionary success.
“Our mission is to make KissBank’s ‘Kiss of Kindness’ the global sign of kindness”, said KissBank co-founder Bob Duffield. “We are daily bombarded with news reports and images of violence and cruelty,” said Bob. “But there is a better, kinder side to human nature which rarely makes the news.
The company aims to send over seven billion kisses of kindness – one for every person on the planet. They will show up everywhere – on walls, on Facebook, in photographs, in emails etc… Everyone is invited to join in. It’s easy to download the ‘Kiss of Kindness’ from www.KissBank.com and send it on to everyone you know.
“With your help it will go viral and lift our spirits in these dark times.” said Bob.

I saw this on a PR site and thought it such a great idea it was worth posting on here.
Long Lasting Insecticide Treated Mosquito Net as an ideal guard against malaria
Vestergaard Frandsen, makers of PermaNet, the long lasting insecticide treated mosquito net in conjunction with the Federal Ministry of Health and the global fund embarked on a nationwide sensitization campaign to enlighten the public on the need to use mosquito nets as a preventive measure against the dreaded disease, malaria which continue to claim the lives of everyone, especially children under the age of five who are most susceptible to the disease.
The campaign is in line with meeting the millennium development goals of eradicating malaria out of Nigeria.
As part of the campaign, there is free distribution of bed nets to families in the various states visited by the ministry.
An idea and a question rolled into one.
Why do the police have deadly bullets in their guns? Why not use tranquillising darts instead?
- Less dead
- Less maimed
- Less families hurt through loss

- More caught
- More prosecuted
- More justice
In fact – why are bullets for sale anywhere?
- It’s super cheap
- It’s better for your skin than most shop sold masks, creams and serums
- It makes your skin look fresh, clean, young and radiant
- It’s great for sensitive skins
- And it’s readily available in supermarkets everywhere…
What is it? Yoghurt!
The natural bacteria in yoghurt melts away dead skin.
- Smear it all over your face, neck, décolletage and anywhere else you want
- Wait a few minutes (most of it will disappear)
- Rinse your face with clear water (otherwise you’ll start smelling funny)
- Admire your new-found skin!
Cleopatra like? You can chuck a whole pot of it into a warm bath (not hot or it will curdle). And when you’re done putting it on your skin – eat what’s left. Yummy inside and out. Do go for a natural, plain yoghurt – without fruit in it.
Turn them into Ice Rinks!
Lidos are venues that usually use the sea to create outdoor pools for the public to swim in safely. It’s a great idea and they’re packed with people all summer long.
However, no-one really wants to swim in them in the winter – making them redundant and a bit of a drain on local government resources (maintenance etc…)
So, why not get them in use all year round and turn them into a great skating venue with spectacular views? Yay!

What a great idea!
I want a big snaking dragon going up the chimney flue pipe with it’s mouth pointing upwards so the smoke pours out of it when the fire’s going.
Perhaps this guy will make me one…

We put plastic bags in our bins that collect rubbish.
That rubbish goes into landfill.
Why aren’t these plastic bags made from something more environmentally friendly?
It could even be made to aid decomposition of the contents that accelarates the process after, say, one month.
Apparently (quick Google search) it can take between 100 and 1,000 years for these bags to decompose.
100 to 1,000 DAYS would be more acceptable.
