I know i was a little scared to raise my hand also. But the last few years have made me more fearless and more of a believer that even a small act of love, peace or empathy can change a person’s life. I have seen it myself with someone’s kindness towards me and I have seen what it does when I pay it forward.
Last week I had breakfast in NYC with a good friend who was leaving for Italy and Iceland a few hours later. When i got over not being invited, I asked her if she would give out Little love Letters: A Peaceful Revolution cards during her vacation. The idea of these 2 countries getting our cards kind of got me excited. She said “yes” and as the pictures show, she has been quite busy. Next week, it’s Iceland’s turn.
We need more love and peace in our world and I have seen how Little Love Letters: A Peaceful Revolution has been part of the change we need right now. The members of the Peaceful Revolution have left cards all over the world and we have distributed over 70,000 cards that have been left in public places, or handed to someone who looks like they could use a little cheering up.
My hope is that we can hit 100,000 Little Love Letters: A Peaceful Revolution cards by the end of 2018.
I think small changes can be powerful. I didn’t start Little Love Letters: A Peaceful Revolution to change the world, but I did start it to change a heart or two. I started it to help people feel less alone. I started it to help them feel like they matter. Because they do.
I created this card because I believe that we are part of one big family. Here is the copy:
When you look in my direction,
what do you see?
When I look at you
I see me.
Welcome to the family.
I am asking you to join our Peaceful Revolution. Summer is a great time to get out there and leave cards around your community or in a country that you are visiting. It takes seconds to do and is fat free. But what you get back just knowing that you are changing someone’s day or even their life is immeasurable.
It can save your world.
Please join us and get your cards at: Little Love Letters: A Peaceful Revolution Cards
We have an assortment of 18 cards so you will receive some of each to spread around!
