Despite what you see on the news or read in your social media feeds, the world is not full of negative people ready to tear you down. Just because the negativity is coming through louder does not mean it is more abundant. It can be exhausting and defeating feeling like there is nothing you can do about it, but that could not be further from the truth. You CAN make a change!
Martin Luther King Jr said that “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that." It’s time to shine that light brighter. Kindness and positivity are what will overpower the hate and division.
What can be done?
Small actions can make a big difference, and we all have the power to implement them. A smile. A wave. A compliment. You never know what someone else is going through, and these small things can have a huge impact.
Who can help?
YOU! You will always be ahead of people who can benefit from a hand to lift them up. Likewise, there will always be people ahead of you who can reach for you to help you forward. There is a constant cycle of giving support and being supported.
BackGetters is not just about the clothing. It’s about being a part of something bigger. It’s about the community of people coming together to make a change. To support each other. To create unity and connections. When you are a BackGetter, you don’t have to worry about doing it alone. We are all in this together.
