"Text for Humanity" Send Uplifting Texts to Total Strangers

February 10, 2020

A nonprofit called Mental Health America launched a new program called "Text for Humanity" that lets you send inspirational text messages to total strangers.  And if you do it, a random person texts YOU an uplifting message.  If you want to try it out, just text the word "JOIN" to the number 37352.

Here's how it works:  You text your first name, the country you're from and a short, uplifting message that's no more than 160 characters.

A random person somewhere in the world will get your message.  Then YOU'LL get a positive message from someone else a few minutes later.

You have to sign up to get the texts.  So they only go to people who want to get them.  Over 10,000 messages have already been sent!


In response to the spread of online negativity, we partnered with @wearesinch to build the world's first texting switchboard, #TextForHumanity. The new service lets people send a positive message to a stranger – and receive one in return. Learn more at the link in our bio.
