People use their phones more than ever, but studies show that all age groups are lonelier than ever. So a new texting platform to spread kindness around the world allows people to send and receive compassionate texts from strangers. "Text for Humanity" is the world's first texting switchboard, designed to fight social cell-phone isolation. "What if we could get unconditional love from the phone we love so unconditionally?" asks CMO Jonathan Bean.
He continued, "First, you send a text you would love to get, to a stranger. And in turn, you receive a text that someone in the world right now needs to hear. Because you're more open and honest with strangers, your words have the potential to be relevant and powerful. After all, we're all human." Users can send and receive up to five texts each day. Since the service recently launched across 23 nations more than 7,000 kind texts have already been exchanged.
