Most people want to do more. The problem is they often don’t know how. We aim to show you how.  

Campaigns are easy ways we can all make a difference by helping others, creating communities, and changing ourselves.

We hold regular events so like-minded people can meet up and help us help others.  

Most people are inherently good and would like to do more to help others. The problem for most of us is that we don’t know how. This is what the Be the Difference Movement is all about.

Through the campaigns we run we show you how you can make a difference by doing small things to change yourself, or to help others on a regular basis. Not everyone is going to be interested in every campaign, but if you choose just one campaign a month to act upon, you will make a difference in your own life and in the lives of others.

For example, Our Share a Smile campaign is about looking everyone you meet in the eyes and giving them a genuine smile. This simple gesture will make you and the recipient feel good as smiling produces feel good hormones. Our Be the Peace campaign is about spending 30 days without judging another. This is something that makes most of us aware of just how often we judge others. Or, you can buy one small item a week in your groceries to donate to a cause that helps the homeless. I have placed a plastic box on the street in front of my house and I have asked people to leave donations.  I live in a street where houses are tucked away and I didn’t even know who my neighbours were for many years. Now people now stop and talk to me. They have thanked me, saying they wanted to help but didn’t know what to do. We aim to donate 100 care packs in 2018, and we are well on our way thanks to the generosity of so many. This is one way to connect more with your community.

Please join us. Pick a campaign and get started. Not all campaigns are shown on this page, so click on the all campaigns link in the menu above. Sign up to my blog to hear about new campaigns or any events we hold. Like my Facebook page so we can add you to our private Facebook group. Together we can make a big difference.
