About Love Everywhere

ashley reale
In the fall of 2009, leaves were changing and Love Everywhere Founder, Ashley Reale, was wondering: “What if one tiny act of kindness could change a life?” So she started to share love with strangers through hidden notes of encouragement, leaving these notes behind everywhere she went. In 2014, she launched a website, and, with the help of a team of ambassadors and an enthusiastic social media community, over 16,000 notes have now been distributed worldwide.

Each note is hand-stamped and numbered for tracking. And each note contains a handwritten message, resurrecting an art form largely lost in today’s digital age. And the really amazing part? These notes have the potential to not only to travel the world as note finders “pay it forward”, but to let people know they are seen, heard, and loved. Can a tiny note do all of this?

“I borrowed a book from my local library and inside I found a note with a Mother Teresa quote on it that read, ‘Be happy in the moment, that's enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.’ I really enjoyed finding this note and keep it on my mirror as a reminder to be more present in my day to day; that each day is a gift not to be wasted. I think this message of sharing love is so special and needed with all the terrible things so often reported in the media. Thank you for your kind words and keep sharing the love!” -Susie in Louisville, Kentucky

Last year, due to the outpouring of support for the project, Love Everywhere launched a shop of hand-crafted, inspirational items. These items are designed with the hope that more people experience what happens when we choose to take part in the powerful work of affirmation. Every item sold comes with a free pack of note cards. That means more of your messages of encouragement out in the world, working their incredible magic. 

Love Everywhere was founded by Ashley Reale and is based in Nashville, Tennessee. There are currently over 50 ambassadors located across the US and internationally around the globe.
