On November 13 in honor of Kindness Day, WQED is encouraging people to express their kindness by wearing a cardigan sweater in spirit of Fred Rogers.
Participants are encouraged to:
1. Wear their favorite cardigan sweater on November 13
2. Encourage your friends, family, co-workers, pets, etc. to do the same.
3. Take a picture and share it on social media using #CardiganDay and tagging WQED
Participants are also welcome to stop by WQED in Oakland (Free Parking) from 8am to 2pm for warm drinks, kindness activities, and to see MISTER ROGERS: JUST THE WAY YOU ARE – an interactive, mixed-media portrait on display at WQED for a limited time. It is, and we quote, “Possibly the ultimate MISTER ROGERS selfie station / photo op in the ‘neighborhood!”
More information can be found online.
I understand you’d love everyone to come on Kindness Day, but we live in Akron, OH and have school. Will the display be up through the weekend? We’re ok with not having snacks, but my son is so into Mr. Rogers right now… and he’s 12!!! ♥️
