As you may know, Lars hosts “Random Tweets of Kindness” day every year. Last year, his kindness initiative trended globally with over 4K tweets in one day.

I don’t have to tell you that Lars Schmidt has a huge heart.

As you may know, Lars hosts “Random Tweets of Kindness” day every year. Last year, his kindness initiative trended globally with over 4K tweets in one day. This year he’s doing it again on March 8 across all social platforms.

He just announced it in the Medium post here: https://medium.com/@ThisIsLars/random-tweets-of-kindness-march-8-2016-rtok-6c7a92c900b4#.iybkwk56p

Ellen DeGeneres just launched a new kindness initiative with the (too long) hashtag #BeKindToOneAnother. She’s looking for people to feature on her show who live up to this hashtag.

That’s Lars.

Here’s the favor: I submitted Lars (with his approval) to be on the show. It’s a long shot…unless we all bombard @TheEllenShow with tweets and posts.  Are you in? How cool would it be to see Lars on the Ellen Show? Even cooler, to see his big-hearted initiative get some recognition and the push it deserves. He doesn’t know I am reaching out to all of you.

WILL YOU TWEET ELLEN? You can use the handle @TheEllenShow and her (too long) hashtag #beKindtoOneAnother and encourage her to feature @ThisIsLars and his #RTOK kindness initiative on March 8. Some suggested posts (the link goes to Lars’ blog post about this year’s event)

@TheEllenShow  #BeKindToOneAnother will be in full swing March 8 w/ #RTOK You need to have @ThisisLars on your show! http://bit.ly/1Q0vlNP

@TheEllenShow everyone agrees you need to have @ThisisLars on your show. His #RTOK is epitome of #BeKindtoOneAnother http://bit.ly/1Q0vlNP

@TheEllenShow want people to #BeKindToOneAnother @ThisisLars knows how. Have him on your show. http://bit.ly/1Q0vlNP #RTOK

At the very least, you can leave work early with a very good excuse: “an HR professional I know will be on Ellen!”

One more thing…Will you pass this note on? I know you all have huge networks.  I’d be grateful.
