The world’s first texting switchboard.
    Send a text you would love to get, to a stranger.

    To take on online negativity, we created #TextForHumanity, where you send a positive message to a stranger and receive one in return.

    Why? Because although we’re using our phones to communicate 24/7, we feel worse mentally – not happier.

    It’s time for our mobile phones to love us back.

    We’re serious about keeping you and your personal information safe, check out our terms and privacy policy if you want to know more.

    Ready to text but not sure what to say? We’ve got a few tips and examples to get you started.
    It’s best to keep your text short – 160 characters is the absolute max. After that it’s about reaching out to a stranger. So let someone know you’re thinking of them, share a joke, or just tell them how you’re feeling right now.

    For some inspiration, take a look at a few of the messages in our gallery.
