“Those best parts of a good life: little, nameless,
unremembered acts of kindness and love.”
– William Wordsworth
Those associated with HOBY have a great understanding for the purpose of our programs and the ripple effect of good that the world feels each spring when 10,000 new HOBY ambassadors are inspired to bring good to, and make change in their communities. They are given the tools to be kind, ethical leaders and they use them. The term that is familiar to our alumni, volunteers and even parents is OUTSTANDING… we say it… A lot.
Often times HOBY’s impact goes unnoticed. People may not know about the service projects that HOBY seminars coordinate with local charities and organizations. They may not be aware of the thousands of HOBY alumni in their own backyards that are doing small things that are making big change. They have no idea their coworkers, classmates or neighbors are a part of an army of volunteers that have chosen HOBY as recipients of their efforts to build up young leaders.
Likewise, often times our own goodness and acts of kindness can go unnoticed. And that’s OK. But, sometimes it IS noticed and that’s even better!
When we recognize good deeds and good attitudes we can inspire others to do the same. MORE RIPPLES!
As such, we want to recognize those that STAND OUT by being OUTSTANDING.
But we can’t be everywhere so we are calling on YOU to keep spreading the good. If someone is a STAND OUT. GIVE THEM YOUR CARD! If you received a card, pass it on!
Tell us about it via your outlet of choice and hashtag #CaughtStandingOUT
Be OUTSTANDING and inspire the OUTSTANDING!
DID YOU RECEIVE A CARD? DID YOU GIVE A CARD?
