Bubblism — Phloat! Hope Acts-Of Kindness
27th September 2016 by Catia Neves
One evening traveling late and tired on the tube my attention was drawn to tiny bubbles floating through the carriage. Strange to see those bubbles, I looked around to see where they came from but couldn’t see the source. They kept coming as though they were appearing from nowhere. Then I caught eyes with a sparkling eyed lady and we shared a happy moment of connection as she sneakily took out her bubbles and blew them travelling through the carriage. I turned my attention down the carriage and it was a sight to see other grown-up faces in the carriage light up as bubbles floated past them as if from nowhere — time had stopped, the carriage was alight with a real sense of excitement and play with worries washed away by the magic of. As she left the carriage the I was given a leaflet introducing me to Phloat.
Phloat is a non profit organisation dedicated to bringing about positivity, creativity and wellness. PHLOAT stands for:
People Helping Lives of Others And Themselves
The aims of Phloat are to create a platform for positivity, a community where all people can thrive, air their opinions, create SOLUTIONS, recognise what FLOURISHES and WORKS CORRECTLY and positively support each other in a inclusive, respectful and non-judgemental way. In short helping each other through acts of kindness.
Phloat created Bubble-ism — bubbly people blowing bubbles in public places. Non toxic and happy scented. Help spread happiness. Curb a crying child. And maybe bring a little peace to someone with a busy mind. I’d like to treat you all to some Bubble-ism – watch Melody Yang’s Gazillion Bubble show!
Join the Phloat community and blow some bubbles or offer another act of kindness to someone you meet!
