Check out Drop Labels!
Chloe Messdaghi, Founder of Drop Labels was one of 3 applicants recognized in the StealthEnomics $25,000 Entrepreneurs Scholarship Award Competition (in December 2016) as a Notable Applicant. I’m personally delighted to have the opportunity to provide Chloe and the Drop Labels organization with this platform to passionately share her company’s impressive and timely value-proposition to improve human interactions. Here’s Chloe… in her own words. Enjoy my friends. ~Christopher Bell, III
And Surprisingly, labels are not really discussed in public as it should. Perhaps, we are to blame because we are not brave enough to share our vulnerable stories of being impacted by a label with others, which is crazy because we all have and are battling labels. I mean every day there are people facing discrimination based on being different than the provoker. And everyday hate crimes are committed out of anger and ignorance.
Right now, more than ever, we need to look at ourselves in the mirror and question our own biases towards others. Because change happens when we seek to change ourselves for the better good. Also, we cannot simply toss labels out, we need to understand why they exist and how can we fix it where we can finally come together united with empathy and compassion for us to finally listen… actually listen and then think and question our beliefs of each other.
You know I have hope. I’m not going to give up. I want to give the voiceless a voice. I want to stand by your side until as a society we no longer fear each other because it is fear that has created labels. It’s fear that takes over our brain to program us to remain separate. But we always have a choice/a moment to challenge our thinking.
There’s a great quote by Charlie Chaplin that “Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little: More than machinery we need humanity; More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.”
The internet has made this world closer than ever before. The creation of social media was to bring about unity, not to spread hate and intolerance. So join me and many others in the Drop Labels movement by visiting DropLabels.org to learn more on how to use social media to challenge labels by peoples’ personal stories. Because at the end of the day we all want to help each other and be happy, and we don’t have to hate or despise each other.
