Calling all Mister Rogers fans, cardigan fans, and, more importantly, supporters of Kindness Day.
WQED in Pittsburgh has created an amazing campaign, in the spirit of Fred Rogers, asking individuals to wear their favorite cardigan tomorrow, November 13, in support of Kindness Day.
Here’s How It Works
Participating is easy! And oh so comfortable. (Who doesn’t love a great cardigan?)
Wear your favorite sweater TOMORROW, Wednesday, November 13 — and encourage your friends to do the same!
Make sure to share a photo of you in your cardigan to spread the message of Kindness Day tomorrow. Tag @WQED in your social post and use #CardiganDay.
I’ve got my (very colorful) cardigan ready!

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood — Coming to Theaters on November 22
Not only am I planning to wear my Mister Rogers sweater tomorrow for Kindness Day, but I’ll also be wearing it when I see A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood in theaters later this month.
About the Film
Two-time Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.
Sing it with me — won’t you be my neighbor? 🙂
