Badges

Badges are a discrete and simple way to offer kindness:

They display a changing, short, kind message, which aspires to make the recipient feel good about who they are and what they already have.

How to Use Them

They can easily be embedded online, any place where an image can be displayed from a URL:

Email Signatures

Share some love with every email you send out! Note that some email providers block outside images by default, so recipients may need to explicitly allow the image to load before they can see it. 🤷

Dear Doug,

I was so glad to meet you from your wonderful email. It was interesting to know about your fish and how you take care of them.

You’re special — just because you’re you.

Your television friend,
