Tag You’re It, now go brighten someone’s day
"YOU don't have to change the world, just someone's world."
And that's all Rockhampton's Aischa Arney wants people to do.
The 19-year-old is encouraging other young people to help others through the TAG You're It Project, which focuses on Timely Acts of Generosity.
Aischa saw the project in action when she was a leader at a youth group in Nambour with 80 teenagers, including seven from Rockhampton.
"The message we wanted to get across with the project is to be thankful and generous," Aischa said.
The youth group hit the streets of Nambour armed with generosity.
This included them buying donuts handing them out, hoping to brighten people's day.
Young people around the country have jumped onboard the TAG project doing everything from buying someone a cup of coffee, paying for their groceries, helping them with chores or simply doing someone a favour. The idea is to document your act of generosity with a photo and put it on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #tagyi, then tagging a friend to commit a kind act.
"It's the world's largest game of tag, where everyone is on the same team," Aischa said. "There's nothing random about it, it's looking for the perfect time to be generous and to make someone's day."
