What is the Strangers Project?

Do you ever see a stranger and wonder — "What's it like being you?"

 I’ve been asking that question for the past ten years and have received more than 45,000 hand-written, true, and anonymous answers. Whether about love or loss, joy or fear, what they all have in common is an honest voice of the human experience.

We’re living in a time where the differences between us are magnified. I believe that what starts as a simple act of listening can be a profoundly transformative experience. Exploring the lives of the people we share space with every day shows us how wonderfully human we all are. These stories engage strangers of all ages and backgrounds to reflect, rejoice, heal and connect through words.

This project is only able to continue with your support. More on this below.











You can read new stories every day and learn more here:

Why do I need your support?

Running the Strangers Project is a full-time job. I’m working to create spaces that celebrate stories, and creating these spaces takes a lot of resources—both funding and time. When I started the project in 2009, I only had a small sign inviting people to stop and share along with a few sheets of paper and a handful of pens. Now, over eight years later, these stories fill up entire buildings, travel to new communities, and reach tens of thousands of people every month.

If you believe in this mission, your pledge of any amount will keep this project going. With your support, I'll be able to bring this project to new people across the globe, create ways for other story-collectors to collect stories from their own communities, and explore whatever else the future holds for the project. Let’s create spaces for stories together.
