This year’s holiday ad from John Lewis is just as creative and inspiring as usual. It’s about celebrating kindness, and gosh, it’s like a salve for the soul to watch it and see something that isn’t inflammatory or scare-mongering. As they did last year, John Lewis and Waitrose partnered to produce the ad, “Give a Little Love,” and they are hoping to raise money for two charities in the United Kingdom: FareShare and Home-Start. You can visit this page to go behind the scenes of the video and purchase some “Give a Little Love” merch.
The plot of “Give a Little Love” reminds me of a video I’ve recommended many times on this blog, “Kindness Boomerang.” For other videos about kindness, here are 7 more. You can also see some of the past John Lewis videos I’ve used in class here and here. And, don’t forget that I have a huge collection of Inspirational Videos for Students on Pinterest here.
