International Action Days

Join thousands of happy people in cities all across the World creating butterfly effects to sweep a wave of positive energy all across our planet and give it a big hug. Join the Global Party

Projects

Creative projects targeting societal issues locally, like homelessness, are suggested by our community, then broken down into small challenges in our Action Centre, which anyone can drop in and take on

Successful projects can then be recreated by Focallocallers anywhere in the World, and adapted to fit their cultural requirements. We want to empower everyone by showing that when we come together with a plan and a goal, we are powerful to make huge impact on specific issues and improving quality of life where we live

Positive Psychology Challenges

To change the world around you, you also have to change the World within you. Habits can be effectively formed by repeating one task every day for 30 days

Join other Focallocallers around the World using 30 day challenges to build positive living habits, together encouraging and supporting each other on an onward journey towards a happier, healthier mind, life and relationships

What You Can Do

Action Centre

'I want to help [insert your favourite cause here], but i'm too busy'. The Action Center has been designed so now you can! In 'Chat' we suggest and discuss Creative + Fun projects/activities targeting local issues you care about, like, homelessness, young people in need of extra support, the elderly, etc

Then in 'Challenges' projects are broken down into bite size challenges which anyone can tackle. Drop a card into 'Complete' when its done, no more guilt over something you said you'd do but then got busy

Why It Will Work

The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up. Mark Twain

We live in a time where most people are aware that the World should be a better place to live in, feel a responsibility to change the many societal ills we've inherited, and are increasingly frustrated by our lack of power to affect these issues we've inherited

Modern life is often so busy that its normal worry whether you can commit regularly to help a good cause, and there are soo many to choose from. We've turned creating positive societal change into play-time!

  1. Something fun you'll want to do with your friends
  2. You can use to meet awesome new friends
  3. a quick activity that refreshes your energy and positivity
  4. something you can do on the way to work, or on a lunch break

    You can do it when you want, where you want, with no long-term commitments

    Each positive action makes a tiny ripple of change within those who interact with it, and as these tiny ripples combine together positive actions in public becomes more and more normal where you live, adding to a wave which already exists and is growing

    Play, have fun together, and reach out a friendly hand to those around you. We are part of the beginnings of a new, happier society awakening
