Data shows us that people from all over the world are feeling more divided from their country and peers than at any time in history. Politics, religion, socio-economic status, ethnicity, and lifestyle choices are no longer topics for well thought out discussion but instead are individual dividers that have people vehemently opposed to one another.
Regardless of our passion about a subject, viewing those with different “truths” as enemies leads to an immediate “you vs I” outlook. It makes all of us flock to our core “groups” and those people we consider to be like-minded. It also creates an environment of judgment and sometimes hatred towards our fellow man/woman.
What is the Same Journey Movement?
The “Same Journey Movement” is a campaign of kindness. We want to give like-minded people, as well as those with opposing views, the opportunity to embrace a group which we are all part of which is “humanity”.
We feel there is no better way to make the world a better place then taking a moment out of your day to perform a good deed for someone.
By doing so, one finds not only do they have an immediate impact on the person receiving the gift, but they unlock a feeling in themselves that can’t be found anywhere else.
Our hope is that by uncovering the magical impact of being thoughtful that we can start to change the world one act at a time. If you are ready to join this Journey with us, read about our Kindness Cards here and consider grabbing your 10 free cards.
