Rather than surrendering to feelings of hopelessness, fear and sadness over the many places and spaces overrun with agendas and campaigns dedicated to promoting hate, a group of us rallied around a simple question:
What does it mean to actively fight hatred with acts of service?
Our collective is organized around a framework that allows us to celebrate the many individuals who want to champion kindness through action. What does this look like? Our website is meant to work as a launch pad for starting your own journey into four years of service in and around your community. This entails three simple steps:
- Pledge to spend the next four years giving your time and/or resources in service to others. For many, this will looks like choosing one charity each month for 48 months.
- Share the story of how you contributed, and how others might do so. This doesn’t have to be fancy or complicated. A tweet, a photo on instagram, a shared post on Facebook might be the way you tell your story.
- Support others who want to get involved by sharing your story, offering assistance, and providing them access the resources available on this site.
That’s it - do service, talk about it, and connect others to opportunities to do the same.
