As a part of a democratic society, we have been given the ability and voice to freely and safely share our diverse perspectives and beliefs.  Our collective strength is in honoring our diversity in service to a greater call - to promote inclusion through unconditional compassion, kindness and respect.  We’ve historically seen this simple tenet altered and abused, with some seeking to leverage our differences as tools of division, subjugation and the promulgation of hatred.

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
