The journey of 1000 Hearts starts with one stitch...

1000 Hearts is a kindness project that I started in 2016 because I saw a need for simple acts of love and compassion. A global community of "heartists" grew around my idea, and it keeps getting bigger.

In 2024, I left my career in the non-profit sector to focus on 1000 Hearts full-time. My dream is to build a viable business which uses its profits to enable schools, groups and services to access heart-making materials where funding is limited.

Welcome to 1000 Hearts, where we believe we can change the world, one heart at a time.
