Kindness One Hug At A Time

Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness. -- Seneca

Fact of the Day:
For two years, University of Miami student Kemy Joseph has been wearing signs around his neck with uplifting messages like "U R Awesome," and "Persevere." He recently celebrated his second anniversary of spreading goodwill by spending 15 hours on campus giving high-fives and hugs. His goal: to make 800 people feel a little bit better in one day. "I tell them they are not alone. We go through the same turbulent times, and the most important thing is that we are all in this together," Joseph remarks. Despite a hectic schedule, the humble grad student still makes time for high-fives, hugs, and handing out chocolates on a Thursday night. His family calls him "Mr. Awesome".

Be The Change:
Go out of your way to make someone's day.

  1. What an inspirational young chap. Awesome indeed! I just love when someone gets possessed by spreading goodness. Almost as if a force wanting to spread good in the world has gotten hold of him. Gives pause for thought what you let yourself and your day/life get possessed by. So much goodness to chose to get infected by!!


Looking forward to seeing how you made a difference today!
