Looking UP

The Looking UP project, hosted by The UP Lab, is dedicated to paying tribute to the everyday heroes–the ordinary people who have an extraordinary impact on our lives.

Take a moment to think about someone who has made a significant impact on your life. Think of someone who has been an influence or a mentor to you. Think of someone who has helped you become a better person.

Think of someone you are grateful for.

This person may be a friend,a family member, a significant other, a teacher—anyone—perhaps even a stranger.

Many of us don’t realize the impact we have on the lives of the people around us. Likewise, the people around us don’t always realize their significance on others.

This project will give people an opportunity to anonymously and publicly demonstrate their gratitude and realize the great people they are surrounded by.

Date: November 18-22
Time: 8am – 7pm
Location: UC Irvine Student Center

If you’ve already shared who you Look UP to and would like to tell us more, share your story here! We will also be accepting anonymous hand-written submissions which we will submit to Tumblr ourselves.

Photos and stories coming soon…
