Dolly Parton makes a ‘call for kindness’ as she celebrates her 75th birthday

Country Queen Dolly Parton is 75 years old.

And this year, the Tennessee-born talent shared a special ‘birthday wish’ with fans and made a ‘call for kindness’ in these turbulent times.

“This year, my birthday wish is a call to kindness,” the Jolene singer wrote as she shared a glamorous black and white photo of herself.

‘We cannot only hope for a better day, we have to work on a better day. Love is all too often buried in a world of pain and fear. So today, January 19th, let’s dig up love ❤️ ‘

She shared a longer version of her ‘birthday wish’ on her website, writing: ‘Well, another year has rolled by and what a year it has been. Like everyone else, it is now my turn for a birthday with COVID coverage. So what do you do? What do you want? Should you even celebrate? ‘

“I choose the quiet path so I can stay close to those I love to count my blessings and think hard about what this New Year will bring.

‘But I do have a birthday wish that I want to share with you. My wish is that everyone does something different today. Let’s call it a call to kindness.

If you want to donate to your favorite cause, donate. If you want to call an old friend in these lonely times, give him a call. If you can log in securely, raise your hand to do so. If you decide today is the day to get a dog, run to the shelter and find your new buddy. The choices are endless.

‘I always encourage people to dream big, but I’m also careful to follow up with the message to work hard. We can’t just hope for a better day, we have to work for a better day.

Love is too often buried in a world of pain and fear. We have to work to dig it out so that we can share it with our family, our friends and our neighbors. So today, January 19th, let’s dig up love. Love is more contagious than a virus, so let your best self shine in a glorious light and others will be inspired by you.

“This is my birthday wish and may your birthday wishes come true,” she ended.
