What's All The Buzz About?!


Welcome to BUZZING LOVE, a place for sharing random acts of kindness and stories of inspiration. Stories of love, loss, grief and healing.
 

Inspired by Gary A. Baranyai, a man who lived his life by helping others but was tragically taken from us too soon, BUZZING LOVE is a reminder to love big, laugh loud, lend others a helping hang, spread as much kindness as possible and leave the world a better place than you found it. 

While we encourage kindness EVERY DAY and all the time, we're currently gearing up for our BIGGEST, KINDEST DAY of the year ...

BUZZING LOVE DAY on SATURDAY, JUNE 29!!!!!! 

This is our big day of the year that was the start of all things BUZZING LOVE! What started as a day of good deeds and acts of kindness to honor the life and memory of the man Buzzing Love was founded for, Gary A. Baranyai, has become so much more. 

It is our DAY OF KINDNESS because ... the world needs more of it. Because if you want more kindness in the world, you have to put it there. Because everyone has a story and everyone has a struggle, and a kind word or gesture could mean the world to someone.


Because when the pain shatters us, it's the love and kindness that saves us. 

BECAUSE THERE IS BEAUTY, POWER & HOPE IN KINDNESS.

Because we need to be reminded that we belong to each other and that love still – and always – wins, even in the midst of heartbreaking tragedies.  

Just because ... you don't even need a reason to be kind to others.

Wherever you find yourself on this Buzzing Love Day on Saturday, June 29th, we hope you'll pause long enough to put a little more love and kindness into the world, it's that simple!!! Just BEE KIND to someone else!! 

We also hope you'll share your Buzzing Love Day act of kindness with us and everyone else on social media using the hashtag #buzzinglove so that we can all encourage and inspire one another!!

If you'd like to help us create more kindness and want some Buzzing Love cards and Buzzing Love bracelets to hand out with you acts of kindness, we'll be happy to send some your way!! Just fill out the request form here!! To print your own Buzzing Love cards, click here!!

As BUZZING LOVE DAY approaches on June 29th, for those who may not know how this little thing called Buzzing Love began and why June 29th is “the day,” please read this story, Buzzing Love Spreads Joy & Kindness To Help Fight Grief & Sadness, by one of my best friends, Juliana Goodwin, who is really the one who started this all .... 
 

I am forever grateful to Juliana and every single one of you who worked so hard behind the scenes to bring the first Buzzing Love Day about, and to every single one of you who has joined us ever since!! Every single one of you is part of this incredible ARMY OF LOVE!!!

I can't wait to light up the world with love and kindness on Buzzing Love Day again this year! Mark your calendars for June 29 and wherever you are please join us in participating in a random or not-so-random act of kindness!!! 




Let us inspire and encourage each other one smile, one hug, one word, one act of kindness at a time. We’d love for you to share your acts of kindness or when you spot kindness in others. Please share these with us via social media by using the hashtag #buzzinglove so that we may encourage and inspire one another to put more positivity into our corners of the world.
  
Share hope, share love, share kindness in all of its forms! Everyone has a story, everyone has a struggle – let us help each other and be kind to one another. When the pain shatters us, it's the love and kindness that saves us. 

WELCOME TO BUZZING LOVE.

You Belong Here & We Belong To Each Other.

With Love & Gratitude,

Jaime (Baranyai) Mowers
