Announcing We Are The World Blogfest!

Will you speak for peace? 

Social media and news in recent times has been filled with hate and negativity.
Just as you cannot fight darkness, only light lamps, hate and negativity cannot be fought. We will bring love and happiness forward, creating an oasis!

and of course, myself!

We will link to charities supported by the co-hosts,
and you could choose to donate to some of them or
add links to local charities you support
so we could all chip in to a good cause if we like.

Let us flood social media with peace and love, and “In Darkness, Be Light.
The first post for We Are The World Blogfest is 31st March 2017


  1. The blogfest takes place the last Friday of each month.
  2. It is suggested that you keep your post to around 500 words so many can be visited.
  3. You can link to a human news story, one that shows love, humanity, and brotherhood. Something like this news, about a man who only fosters terminally ill children.  Or tell/sketch one of your own!
  4. Share news that warms the cockles of your heart. No story is too big or small!  Think of stories that show compassion, neighborliness, caring, sweetness — into the core of humanity.
  5. watw-turquoise-badge-320-x280-whitePlace the WE ARE THE WORLD Badge on your sidebar (more sizes below).
  6. Help us spread the word on social media: Tweets, Facebook shares, G+ shares using the #WATWB hashtag through the month are welcome. More Blogfest signups mean more friends, love and light for all of us.
