On the 14th of December BPE won the 4th Boiling Amsterdam competition with “We Choose To Be Friends”.
Can a small group of people change the world? We live in a world where the actions of one human being can effect many others thus small actions can have a big impact. To show that We Choose To Be Friends we invite you to continue and grow this global snowball effect of human kindness.
All you need to do is 3 things:
Please add #WeChooseToBeFriends to all your posts on the channels mentioned above!
We would love it if you accept the challenge to do 7 acts of kindness for 7 people within 7 days. This because we have noticed that during this process people develop a more positive mindset which becomes a self-amplifying feedback loop and it might trigger you to never stop doing this… and who knows… we might end up living in a world where strangers act as friends. Obviously we are already very happy if you do one act of kindness and pass this on.
#WeChooseToBeFriends won €2500,- and yesterday a group of people from the BPE community spend the first €492,56 on the first 80 people in a neighborhood in Amsterdam.
Small actions can have big effects… If we manage to have 500 people do 7 acts of kindness for 7 people and these 3500 people do 7 acts of kindness for another 7 people etc, an amount of people is reached which surpasses the total amount of people living on the planet in the 9th step. So lets see where our boundaries are…
On behalf of the growing BPE community, thanks a 7 billion for being part of this global snowball effect of human kindness and we wish you a nice day!
