You may have seen their ads on TV, maybe you even saw a billboard or perhaps you saw one of their inspirational quotes posted on Facebook. And if you were like me, you wondered who was behind Values.com.
And when I finally did visit their website I found a wonderful and extensive treasure trove of inspirational videos, quotes, and more. If you haven’t visited their website yet, I highly recommend it.
My curiosity led me to their FAQ page. I really wanted to know, who was behind this force of positive messaging, the people who were bringing tears to my eyes as I watched some of their inspirational positive human values messages.
Here are a few key things I learned about this wonderful organization…
In essence – their values are about any values that bring out our goodness within ourselves and within our community.
WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS?
“We believe that people are intrinsically good and often benefit from a simple reminder. We offer these messages in an effort to promote good values and positive role models.”
POSITIVE MESSAGES WITHOUT BOUNDARIES
The Foundation does not have any political or religious agenda, so that people from all backgrounds might feel uplifted by these messages of encouragement and hope. Our objective is simply to promote a wide spectrum of values by providing an uplifting message around each one.
They only have one sister organization “The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, is the only organization with which we are affiliated. www.randomactsofkindness.org”
HOW DO THEY GET FUNDING TO DO ALL THIS:
The advertising time and space for these messages is donated by broadcast and print media companies as a public service. Additionally, we work with many individuals to produce our messages, including celebrities who generously share their images and stories free of charge. Many publishers and record labels also contribute music for our public service announcements. We are grateful for the support of The Anschutz Foundation, which provides operating costs for The Foundation for a Better Life.
So let’s add this up:
+ They aren’t asking for donations and they don’t spam people
+ They aren’t pushing any single group’s agendas, political, religious or otherwise – no hidden agendas
+ And their sole purpose is to promote positive healthy personal and community values
This is such a great example of an organization who is spreading love and other powerful values universally – and I am very grateful they exist…
