Heart Initiative

Wed Mar 1, 2017, 8:19 AM




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!

I was a bit confused at first until I accidentally clicked the heart, didn't even know it had a link (computer's are not my specialty). Thank you for the heart, not sure how to send it to others, but it sounds like a great idea. Best of luck to you. :)

Even if it makes sense to alot and even myself, im still so confused as to why send someone like me hearts when i obviously doesnt deserve anything but to leave? Ever since i joined dA only more and more drama and harassment has turned above me and havent left me for so long... so im mostly just confused plus i dont see a reason why i should do this cause literally, everyone on dA hates me and want me gone for who i am and how much i care and just spoil people...

Woah there. Not everybody on DA hates you. There's a lot of people on DA. Many of which have never met you. I send out hearts because everyone deserves a little piece of happiness and love.

I understand what it feels like to feel like the entire world is against you. But it's not. It's only in your mind that you feel that way. Sending love.

Erh if you say so, even though theres been over 1000 different people harassing me, insulting and whatnot, but its a story no one needs. Continue doing what you like, as long you dont block me as everyone does cause really, i watch people cause i want to support them, and i want to still support people even if i never talk to them.. so please, dont block me is all i ask cause im tired of how often it happens.

Good day.

You've never given me a reason to block you. I'm sorry that people are harassing you. Nobody deserves that.  If you'd like, you could send me a note to talk about things? I don't mind listening.

Oh, haha! Yes I can see how that would confuse people. Maybe I should add something with the heart next time.
