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 Garg, Simon Falk, Lynn Hallbrooks, Eric 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. 🙂
