The mixed-media portrait was made by a Nashville artist who used several items to make it, including a pair of glasses Mister Rogers wore.

World Kindness Day is also observed on Nov. 13, making it the perfect chance to show your neighbor kindness and compassion in true Fred Rogers fashion.

Temps are also supposed to be record-low by Wednesday, and there's no better way to stay warm than with a cardigan to honor Fred Rogers.
