Welcome to the “We are the World Blogfest” (#WATWB ). The #WATWB was inspired by a simple conversation about how all the negativity on social media was weighing on us. Wanting to make a difference, we decided to try to do our part to infuse social media with all the good stories that are out there. We hope to share the stories that show kindness, compassion, hope, overcoming challenges and in general, the impressive resilience of the human spirit. For every dark, negative story out there, there is a positive, heartwarming story that will add some light and lift the human spirit. #WATWB was started in 2017, this month marks our forty-eight opportunity to share positive uplifting stories to inspire, give hope and motivate others. The last Friday of every month bloggers share their stories led by two co-hosts, this month’s co-hosts are myself Sylvia McGrath and Belinda Witzenhausen.
Those who know me can tell you how passionate I am about writing and promoting Disability awareness. Although originally filmed for the International Day of People with Disabilities 2018, I think it’s a message that should be shared everyday! Don’t Underestimate Me is a wonderful video that speaks volumes and I am sharing it for this month’s #WATWB.
