About #1000 Speak

1000Speak blank

Bloggers from all over the world are coming together to talk about compassion on the 20th of each month.  The 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion movement was born when blogger and author Yvonne Spence organized over 1000 bloggers to post about compassion in one epic event on February 20, 2015.  The response was so great that it was decided to continue the #1000Speak project on a monthly basis, with a different topic each month.

We realised that there were a number of children who wanted to participate, but who didn’t have their own blogs to write anything on (and for some parents, having their child post on their blog wouldn’t be possible due to the content of the rest of the blog) so we created this space where we can share kids’ posts and the posts of adults who don’t have their own blogs.

As such, we require that all submissions to this site be suitable for all ages to view, as we anticipate that the next generation will want to see their own work and that of others – it is important that this space remain safe for them to do so freely.

If you have a child who would like to join their voice to #1000Speak, or you don’t have a blog and would like to participate, you can submit your story to 1000Speak@gmail.com.  Posts will be published and shared on social media on the 20th of each month. Make sure you check back to see your story published here on the 20th!
