WITH THE HELP OF OUR TOKII TEAM WE ARE AT 452 ACTS!
Our belief at Wearable Therapy is that everyone has the chance to make a positive difference in the world. While we try to spread awareness to towards the bigger problems that are going to take many minds and hearts working together to solve, small acts of kindness and love are something that we can each commit to doing to help make this world a happier and safer place to live.
In 2017, Wearable Therapy in collaboration with our sister site, Stand Up Speak Up, have committed to accomplishing 3000 Acts of Kindness by 2020. As always, we are doing this through finding new and creative ways to spread awareness and start conversations about topics that we believe need to be brought into the forefront:
