ICanHelpNo matter how old you are, you can make a difference.

No matter who you are, you can make a difference.

No matter where you are, you can make a difference.

No matter how you feel, you can make a difference.

The difference you make, is up to you!

Social media has made it easy for many people to make a difference in lives.  Whether you send someone a smiley face, LIKE their photo, or send them cheerful thoughts — your keystrokes have the power the to build others up as quickly as they can break people down.

What I love is when I see communities and schools coming together to make a difference.

I think the first experience we all saw nationally was the @WestHighBros who set out to make someone’s day a little bit brighter and before we knew it, it went viral as we all soon realized that a Tweet of kindness goes a long way!

Recently I discover a group of students, teachers and adults that decided to create a wave of change after someone created a fake Facebook page on a teacher.  They decided to combat this cruelty with kindness, by creating a campaign of “Delete Negativity Online” with the #iCANHELP hashtag.

Their Twitter handle reads:

#icanhelp delete negativity campaign. Be apart of a group of students and adults working to significantly reduce negativity.

On Thursday’s when most people have #TT for Throwback Thursday, @icanhelp_  has  “Tag Someone Thursday! How many people can we make feel loved today!”

TagThursdayThey don’t miss a beat on Instagram either!

YouAreNotAloneDon’t miss them on Facebook!

When they launched their video it was nothing short of inspiring!  I hope you will watch it and pass it on.

Delete negatively – empower and encourage others around you.

#icanhelp Make a Difference and be a Positive Warrior!

#iCANHELP encourages you to STACK IT!

#iCANHELP replaced Hump Day with Happy Help Day!
