In the fall of 2009, leaves were changing and Love Everywhere Founder, Ashley Reale, was wondering: “What if one tiny act of kindness could change a life?”
So she started to share love with strangers through hidden notes of encouragement, leaving these notes behind everywhere she went. In 2014, Ashley launched a website, and with the help of a team of ambassadors and an enthusiastic social media community, over 24,000 notes have now been distributed globally from here in the United States to as far away as the Eiffel Tower, the Taj Mahal and beyond!
Each note is hand-stamped and numbered for tracking and contains a handwritten message, resurrecting an art form largely lost in today’s digital age. And the really amazing part? These notes have the potential to not only travel the world as note finders “pay it forward”, but also to let people know they are seen, heard, and loved.
Love Everywhere is proud to offer thoughtfully designed and socially responsible products that feature positive messaging. These items are designed with the hope that more people experience what happens when we choose to take part in the powerful work of affirmation. Every item sold comes with a free pack of their signature encouragement cards. That means more messages of kindness out in the world, working their incredible magic.
Ashley received a BA in Fashion Design from Columbus College of Art & Design in 2005. She brings 12+ years of experience in fashion design and brand development. Today she has the honor of cultivating a thriving community of kind hearts through her work to make sharing good vibes and love as simple and practical as leaving a nice note at your favorite coffee shop.
Ashley currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband, two children and one rambunctious rescue puppy. There are currently over 50 Love Everywhere ambassadors located internationally and across the United States.
