Here is the full statement from the Singapore Kindess Movement:
SINGAPORE - The Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM), today starts its month-long media programme on the kindness message this year, "A Nation of Kindness Starts with One".
Through gentle reminders to incorporate graciousness in our daily routines, SKM's messages will be visible on public transport and elsewhere on the island, as well as in print and online, to encourage people to take ownership of kindness.
A kind and gracious society is built through the accumulation of single kind and gracious acts, giving rise to the theme "A Nation of Kindness Starts with One".
The power of one greeting, one helping hand, one kind individual, one inspirational ground-up initiative is immense. As the "ones" builds up to "everyone", a kinder society is collectively created.
Working with its public transport partners, SKM has achieved notable results in encouraging public transport etiquette. The graciousness message will be carried islandwide on themed buses and MRT trains, specifically promoting gracious behaviours such as giving way to alighting passengers, queuing up in an orderly fashion and moving in to make space for others on bus and train carriages.
A number of bus stops and MRT stations will dress up with a new kindness-themed look to greet commuters with simple yet effective reminders on the easy steps we can take to be kinder and more gracious on our daily commute.
