Project Forgive Landing Page


Hi, it’s Shawne from Project: Forgive.

Project: Forgive’s social media reach is impacting nearly 12 million people every month and we want to feature your quotes.

We’re seeking your quotes on the topics of: forgiveness, compassion, integrity, collaboration, diversity, adversity, kindness, leadership and love.

In return, you’ll receive access to watch our PBS live-streamed event called Authentic Leadership Day. (See below for details.)

This innovative event sponsored by Verizon Wireless, Ford Motor Company, Cryoderm and Michigan Works! Association was created through our leadership foundation Project: Forgive, a 501c3 non-religious, non-partisan organization that educates leaders and students on collaboration, diversity, integrity, compassion and forgiveness in the workplace.

The Project: Forgive Foundation was born out of a 5-minute video on forgiveness that went viral, garnering media attention from outlets such as CNN and Inc. Magazine, and support from the likes of Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Kristen Bell from the movie “Frozen.”
