With people always rushing from point A to point B, they hardly interact with people that cross their paths.  This project aims to rebuild interpersonal relationships in our society by infecting Singaporeans with the spirit of giving and love. They believe that a simple act of kindness can spread great joy and warmth to the people around.

Quotes from their facebook page:

" People fiddling with their smart phones and tuning in to their music ♫, staring listlessly into space in an attempt to avoid meeting the eyes of the one standing right opposite him. Someone accidentally brushes past and hits his elbow."

" Project Hello Stranger is a voluntary movement by a group of Singaporean youths who want to see a happier Singapore. As like in many cities, we are often forced or socialized into building a wall around us due to the competition that we are used to in school and at work, and that permeates into other areas of our lives. However, we know that within those walls lie big hearts ♥ and we aim to break them down by infecting Singaporeans with the spirit of giving and love. "
