What is the ♥ initiative?The heart initiative started as me just running around throwing hearts at people, for really no reason at all. It eventually evolved into something more than that. There started to be an outpouring of people who got a small chuckle, or felt appreciated when I sent them a heart. These people started to change the way I saw communication on DA. A simple ♥ could influence people to take a moment out of their day and just smile (or be confused - there's a number of confused people, haha).
I've made it my personal mission to send hearts to as many people as I can. And I encourage everybody else to do the same. A simple gesture, a few seconds of your time, can make a huge impact on other people's lives. This world we all live in is full of horrors, each person facing their own personal versions of horror. There is no reason why we shouldn't take literally two seconds of our time, just to show someone that we care. No only does it show other people that we care, but it shows them that we too, are human, and we are all connected.
Please take a few seconds of your time to send a ♥ to at least one other person on DA. The difference that one ♥ can make is honestly astounding. If the person is confused, you can send them to this journal so that they understand that you sent them the heart because you're extending your care and affection. DeviantArt should not be a place where people come to and have to face drama. DeviantArt is a home away from home for so many of us, and we should treat it with the respect that this community deserves. Have a wonderful day, fellow deviant, go forth and send hearts! ♥
