One person can make a difference in the life of someone else.

Something small - a smile, a hello, a thank you, or a random act of kindness can brighten the day for others.

YOU can Start the Chain Reaction...Start with HELLO!

Say 'Hello' to Someone New

It is such a simple gesture, but a kind greeting can genuinely mean the world to someone else. Saying 'hello' to someone new can be a little intimidating, so try to have fun with it - say 'hello' in another language, a silly accent, or pair it with a compliment. You never know the conversation, the connection, or the relationship it could lead to.
