Send words of inspiration for #WarmHeartsNYC campaign

Wellington Z. Chen gestures to the word “peace” on the Chinatown Kiosk.

New Yorkers are hoping to #warmheartsNYC as part of the Chinatown BID’s words of inspiration campaign. Here are a few examples of what has been submitted so far:

– “We have faced great hardships lately. However, our strength and love persist. It will only grow and expand if you continue to have faith and share kindness.”

– “Hang in there guys! Be strong – Have faith – all NYC supports your uniqueness and diversity and are praying for your comeback in the near future.”

– “The best is yet to come!!! You can do it!!!! We can help.” – “You are LOVED, You are STRONG, You are IMPORTANT, You are RESILIENT. Keep your head up and your heart open! We are all in this together, and we will get through this together.”

– “Hang in there! There is a light at the end of the tunnel. You are essential to the vital color and fabric of NYC!”

“So glad to see all these heart-warming expressions and caring messages from all over – we even have a group of volunteers sending their love and support from Wichita, Kansas,” said Wellington Chen, Executive Director of Chinatown BID/Partnership. “Once again, your readers are showing their strong and resilient spirits much as they’ve done to overcome the prior disasters. We’re all in this together and our collective comeback has to start somewhere and this is indeed a very good beginning.”
