Last week, October 5-11, 2014 was Mental Health Awareness Week. This was the perfect opportunity to create a twitter event to encourage others to tweet using the #JustSayHello hash-tag. The Just Say Hello campaign was created to help people make an effort to reconnect with someone they have lost touch with or engage in a conversation with a person they wouldn’t normally talk to. Intentionally making meaningful connections can reduce the silent epidemic of 60 million Americans that suffer from loneliness.

As an incentive to get people to participate in this twitter event, I partnered with the women’s empowerment non-profit, I Know Somebody Houston to give one woman 2 FREE Oprah’s Life You Want Weekend Tickets when she comes to the Toyota Center in Houston, TX October 17-18, 2014. There were some remarkable women that tweeted using the #JustSayHello hash-tag the dream they felt they could accomplish with the tools they would learn at this Oprah event focused on walking in your purpose.

It was so difficult to judge the entries because there are some women doing amazing work. The winner is Tracie Jae, she does introspective work with couples to help strengthen marriages. She’s looking for the tools from this conference to help her launch a seminar called “Would I Marry Me” to help people recognize and fix the brokenness within themselves so they can enter marriage whole. I’m so grateful to be able to give her this opportunity to get the missing link she needs to start walking in her purpose and create a more meaningful life for herself and others.

    I’m extremely grateful for this opportunity. My daughters give me a hard time because I #JustSayHello all the time. It’s part of who I am!
