Welcome to the “We are the World Blogfest” (#WATWB ). The #WATWB was inspired by a simple conversation about how all the negativity on social media was weighing on us. Wanting to make a difference we decided to try to do our part to infuse social media with all the good stories that are out there. We hope to share the stories that show kindness, compassion, hope, overcoming challenges and in general, the impressive resilience of the human spirit. For every dark, negative story out there, there is a positive, heartwarming story that will add some light and lift the human spirit. The last Friday of every month bloggers will share their stories led by six co-hosts, this month’s co-hosts are Shilpa GargSimon FalkLynn HallbrooksEric Lahti, Damyanti Biswas and Guilie Castillo.

After a break last month, #WATWB is back and ready to start 2018 with not one, but five stories of incredible human kindness!
Many of us in North America are experiencing a very bleak and cold winter, what better way for us to warm our hearts than to hear about five incredible tales of human kindness! This video introduces us to five amazing individuals who use their passions to help others.  We hear about a theatre company that views disabilities as special abilities, a retiree who makes socks for the homeless, a surf instructor who teaches others to ride the waves in and out of the water and a dance instructor helping refugees express themselves through dance.  We also hear more from Magic Wheelchair who I featured in my October #WATWB post. 🙂

  1. These are truly incredible stories of kindness and compassion. I remember reading your post on Magic Wheelchair. They are doing a fab job of creating some epic costumes for children and adding some smiles and sunshine in their lives. And Lydia Mathis’s efforts to help the refugees to dance away their trauma and painful memories is simply commendable. More power to these wonderful people. Thanks for sharing this heartwarming video, Belinda!

  2. These are INCREDIBLE, Belinda! I particularly loved the Socks by Bob story: “Find something that needs to be done. And do it.” This man has cracked the eternal question of what our purpose in life is! And the surfer one is also amazing… The philosophy behind it, learning to ride the waves in life, is so powerful. Thanks so much for sharing these!

    1. I think they all had a great message but those two I loved too. Finding purpose seems puts the spark in people’s lives. I think it also has a healing effect which helped him through his grief. Thank you so much for stopping by and being part of#WATWB. Hope you are having a terrific weekend! 😊
