Take a day to uplift the people around you.

Let’s face it. There’s a lot going on in the world right now, and some days all you can see is what’s wrong. It’s on the news. It’s on social media. It’s in your neighbourhood. And it feels like everyone is more divided, that we’re choosing sides and losing sight of the fact that we are all one people.

What if we put a stop to that for ONE day?

On August 27th, I invite you to join me for Uplift-Each-Other Day. For one day, let’s see the good in each other. For one day, let’s show the good in ourselves.

Here’s how it’s gonna work.

On your social media, post only things that are uplifting, inspiring, funny, heartfelt. Post stories of people helping each other. Post videos that tug at your heart strings and make you cry happy tears. Post jokes that will create belly laughs in others. And share the joy as well.

But don’t stop there.

Uplift others in your life. Tell the people you love that you love them. Spend time with those that matter to you. Do something special for the people that are special to you.

Then uplift other people.

Pay for the person behind you in the drive-through. Or buy groceries for the family you know is suffering right now. Give to that organization you care about or spend the day helping them out. Help someone in need. Organize a neighbourhood event. Take videos acts of kindness and post them. Inspire others through your own actions.

And uplift yourself too.

Watch a movie or listen to music that makes you smile .Go do that activity you love. Reach out to the people that make you happy.

Now, I know you may have your causes to get back to, your fights to fight, but they’ll be waiting for you on the 28th. This is not about ignoring the injustice in the world or pretending that everything is fine. The fact that things aren’t fine is why we need this day. This is about taking a day off from hate. Make this day not about you, not about being right, but about showing the compassion and love and I know you have.

Remember a time when someone helped you out, whether it was something small or something huge. Remember that feeling of gratitude it gave you. The smile it brought to your face. Let’s share that feeling with as many people as possible.

We are all connected. We are all affected by the actions of each other. What if we took ONE day, not for a particular cause, but for humanity itself? What ripple effects would occur if all of us, all at once, showed how much we love each other. What if, in the face of all that’s happening right now, we show how much we believe in the goodness of humanity?

Please join me August 27th for Uplift-Each-Other Day. Please join me to uplift the world. Share this video and make your own. Let’s start a total wave of uplifting to wash away the negativity in the world for ONE day. You got this. We got this.

Thank you.
