Send unconditional support to someone who needs it during COVID-19.

Text For Humanity was originally created to counter online negativity by exchanging positive messages between strangers. Right now, we have extended the service - allowing anyone to send a message of gratitude to frontline heroes during covid-19.

    The world’s first texting switchboard.
    Send a text you would love to get, to a stranger.

    To take on online negativity, we created #TextForHumanity, where you send a positive message to a stranger and receive one in return.

    Why? Because although we’re using our phones to communicate 24/7, we feel worse mentally – not happier.

    It’s time for our mobile phones to love us back.

    COVID-19: #TextForHumanity extends its service - allowing anyone to send a message of gratitude to frontline heroes.

    Becoming part of Text For Humanity is easy.

    Follow our four simple steps and send your first message to a stranger. You can also choose to send your message directly to a frontline worker or someone living in isolation.

    We’re serious about keeping you and your personal information safe, check out our terms and privacy policy if you want to know more.

    Ready to text but not sure what to say? We’ve got a few tips and examples to get you started.
    It’s best to keep your text short – 160 characters is the absolute max. After that it’s about reaching out to a stranger. So let someone know you’re thinking of them, share a joke, or just tell them how you’re feeling right now.

    For some inspiration, take a look at a few of the messages in our gallery.
