05 Feb Introduction
Where to begin? “Pinched” from clay the PinchPals were created as characters for an animated film. At its crux it is a very simple idea: a way to express kindness, let someone know “you’ve got their back”, an easy way to re-connect with someone. The story is grounded in the notion at our core we human beings are basically the same, most of us are compassionate beings.
The goal for the PinchPals to touch 1 million lives by the end of 2020 (just did the math, quite a stretch, means something like 83,000 views per month! ). But hey it’s only February ! Over the next year the PinchPals will find exactly where they belong in the grand scheme of the world. For now working to solidify the PinchPals “brand” by sharing the existing animations and gifting a PinchPal.
Another animation is in the works, focusing on compassionate acts. An act of compassion is defined by its helpfulness. Know someone who could use a lift up, or a pat on the back….a little recognition and a compassionate “pinch” of support goes a long way.
As time goes on blog posts will share PinchPal stories, they travel around the world. Also featured will be stories about PinchPal owners. PinchPals have been gifted to countless folks. This forum will share opportunities and resources for you to express compassion and kindness.
Thank you for helping our divided, stress-filled crazy world be a little more decent, humane, optimistic and promising.
