World Kindness Day was on November 13th and a hospital in Pittsburgh had the best idea to celebrate the holiday. 

The day was introduced back in 1988 by the World Kindness Movement to highlight good deeds in the community focusing on the positive power and the common thread of kindness which binds us.

The nurses at UPMC Magee-Women's Hospital in Pittsburgh helped celebrate the holiday by dressing the newborn babies as Mister Rogers, the role model of kindness and compassion. 

One nurse, in particular, Caitlin Pechin,  crocheted tiny red cardigans with ties and booties for the newborns to get the signature Mister Rogers attire. 

The hospital invited Roger's widow, Joanne Rogers, to come join the festivities and she was blown away by all the Baby Rogers. 

The staff greeted Mrs. Roger's by singing 'Mr. Roger's Neighborhood' theme song in the lobby. 

The entire hospital staff along with Ms. Rogers had a day they will never forget with those little baby Rogers. #GoodVibes
