Meet Someone New Today - A Kindness Campaign Celebrated Everyday

Who do you know who would make a great Goodwill Ambassador? Email us: contact@onlygood.tv

We worry about the divisiveness in the world today and our mission includes finding ways to bring people together. Encouraging people to strike up conversations with people they don't know would help break down barriers and assuredly help bring the world together one person, one conversation, one stranger at a time. That is why OnlyGood TV (OGTV) is launching the Meet Someone New Today campaign.

----- It may seem counter intuitive to promote meeting new people at this time when it is critical to protect yourself from the Covid19 virus. But it is not. If anything, it is more important than ever to stay in touch with family and friends and to meet new people to avoid quarantined-induced loneliness. We will just have to have these encounters online or while keeping our socially acceptable distance. -----


OGTV produces videos that engender joy and hope. We want to be at the forefront of the positivity movement, which unites and connects people, and are committed to providing a hopeful narrative on humanity by telling the stories of individuals overcoming adversity, paying it forward, or modeling the kind of world we want to live in, filled with kindness, gratitude and happiness.

We have met many great role models that inspire us but two in particular, exemplify the goal of the Meet Someone New Today campaign. No matter the circumstance, Joe Sheinman would engage people he did not know in conversation finding common ground with them no matter who they were, what their race or ethnicity was, where they were from, or what their interests were. Strangers at the start, they would leave as if they'd been friends for years. He was born on August 25th and recently died at the age of 92. Similarly, known as a 'people builder', Arthur Lee Stokes, who also recently passed away, could always find the goodness in someone's heart. Arthur's ability to connect with people of all stripes made him the quiet, unassuming, and loved, center of his many different communities.

Joe and Arthur were the consummate ambassadors for humankind and represent a positivity movement that OGTV, in cooperation with the I Talk To Strangers Foundation wants to support. Join us.

Contact OnlyGood TV and let us know who you would like to add to this list of Meet Someone New Today Ambassadors, wonderful people who find the best in everyone. Email us at: contact@onlygood.tv

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
