One of the most inspiring parts of being involved with The Friendship Bench is seeing how other students are coming together to help and support their fellow students, whether they’re on the same campus or further afield.
One such example is the MRK634 course at Seneca College in Toronto, Ontario.
So we've just launched this special campaign at The Friendship Bench and we'd love you to take part!
Between November 24th, 2015 and December 25th, 2015 we’re asking students across Canada to reach out to friends every day, those that they see often and acquaintances that they may not connect with as often … and say “hello”; ask how they’re doing – how they’re really doing.
Give the gift of hello and you may very well start a conversation that saves a life. At a minimum, you’ll make someone’s day!
And it's not only students that can take part! Hop on over, watch the video, and give the gift of hello today.
If you want to be a broadcast channel (whether that’s your blog, social network, email blast or whatever), go ahead and knock yourself out.
But let’s not pretend that blog comments are being switched off to “offer a better experience more attuned to the reader’s choice.”

"And know this… whether our smile is fake or not, we are happy to see you too. Because we did it. We made it. We left our bedroom and got out into the world.
"We shed a small piece of our cement suit, waved our arms and said hello.
"Thank you for saying hi back. Sometimes, that’s more than enough."

Why did you start blogging? Is your reason for blogging today the same as it was then? For me, the goal was simple:
The joy of just putting something out there, with no other agenda than to share your thoughts with the world, and see if anyone responded and started a conversation with you.
But it's easy to lose that goal along the way. It's why I started the Pure Blogging project.
Here's why you might find it as enjoyable as I do.

Does emotion and logic define who and what influences a person?
