Gives Me Hope

http://www.givesmehope.com

Gives Me Hope is where people share with the world their most hopeful, uplifting moments – one paragraph stories of amazing friends, true love, and random acts of kindness. It’s Chicken Soup for the Soul – the 21st Century, Twitter-style version.
Gives Me Hope was launched in June 2009 in response to the popular site, FMyLife.com (FML). On FML, people share stories explaining how their day was completely ruined. We love FML, but it can sometimes be a downer. And we're exhausted by the negativity of society and the mainstream media. We're tired of hearing about what's wrong in this world. That's why we created Gives Me Hope.
