The launch of a global movement to save lives

Governments and medical personnel have fought earnestly in handling and preventing COVID-19. Various levels of society also contributed to handle it. But ironically, at the same moment, the public is still being "bombarded" by the news in the media, especially social and online communication groups about the various effects as a result of this pandemic. Whether the number of deaths, the decline of the economy, the high unemployment rate, and a lot more. Whether or not the world is getting worse, the nature of negative news will make us believe that it is.

Onggy Hianata, an Indonesian citizen with some of his friends in Indonesia and his global network became growingly concerned with the current situation. They realized how this overload can negatively influence people worldwide mentally, emotionally, and physically. It can indirectly affect the immune system of young children, teenagers, adults and elderly.

For this reason, they came up with a great idea to reduce negative news consumption by spreading an uplifting message. The main purpose of this movement is to do an act of humanity that can indirectly save lives from the future effects of consuming too much negative news.

They decided to make a positive video campaign with the slogan, “WE ARE ONE. SAVE LIVES FROM COVID-19. ONLY CONSUME and SHARE POSITIVE NEWS”. In this project, volunteers took a picture holding up a paper with the same slogan and submitted it to the media team. In a span of one week from April 14 to April 21, 2020, they collected pictures from 197 countries, which is more than the countries listed in the UN.

After extending the deadline until April 25, they received pictures from 217 countries and territories, resulting in approximately 3700 pictures in total. They strongly believe this movement can bring hope to many people around the world.
Onggy, his friends and everyone who voluntarily participated in the movement plan to launch the video campaign on YouTube Live on May16, 2020. They want to show the world that we are all human beings who have the same hopes and aspirations.
Check this video and follow to participate in this global campaign to spread hope.
