Learn How HeartBeatsHate
This isn't a small task. It takes courage to show kindness. Why? Because for too long it's been perceived as weakness, but this isn't the case. Kindness is powerful. It is also universal. It isn't bound by language, race, religion or creed. A simple smile, nod or wave hello has the power to transform someone's life - if even for a moment. In a world where hatred, violence and fear rule the headlines, we're working to provide an alternative story. One of acceptance, unity and hope.
