Mapping Acts of Kindness through the Crowd-Sourced “People Loving People Mapping Project”
Join the world in mapping acts of kindness, big or small. Add to the internationally crowd-sourced mapping project inspired by the number one selling solo artist of all time, Garth Brooks and his new song “People Loving People.” Follow the movement at #peoplelovingpeople and share your story now at http://peoplelovingpeople.org
About the mapping movement: The Georgia Geographic Alliance, a member of the National Geographic Network of Alliances for Geographic Education housed at Georgia State University, wants to know just how interconnected and kind the world really is today. How much? Well, that’s up to you! Share your story and encourage others to share theirs at http://peoplelovingpeople.org.
What are we looking for on the map? Acts of kindness, big or small, given or received are what we are looking for, but it is really up to you. From a family donating their time in a local soup kitchen to a group of kids planting trees in their neighborhood….these are some of the stories to map. Acts of kindness to others and the environment are all welcome.
Why are we doing this?
- We all need to know the world is full of good
- Maps tell great stories and are just cool
- Garth Brooks inspired us with his new song “People Loving People”
