Description/Profile/About

What would you do to change the world?

If I could change the world, I would make each of us more hesitant to judge one another. Regardless of our individual backgrounds, ethnicities, genders or religions, we've become increasingly quick to put other people in categories, to judge them before we know them, to speak more than we listen. And because of this, our world has lost some of its softness. Some of its magic. Some of its beauty. If I could change the world, I would slow things down, smooth out the edges, and remind people that the busyness and hectic pace we keep too often prevents us from seeing the beauty around us. If we judged other people less quickly and less harshly and took the time to see how fortunate we all are, I think our world could collectively heal from the pervasive hate that seems to too often win out over love. If I could change the world, I would somehow connect with other people in such a delicate, authentic way that they, too, would stop seeing all the items on their "to-do" lists as things they HAVE to do and instead enjoy them as things they GET to do. We get one shot at this precious gift of life. We need to be more gentle with each other, more supportive of ourselves, and more delighted to wake up each day eager to experience the many surprises awaiting us.

Wendy Bell on Why One World Blue
About Wendy Bell
I am a proud American. I am a writer. A dreamer. A positive thinker and lover of people whose small ideas make a big impact on this world we all share. I believe life is what we make of it and that unexpected challenges and heartache push us in directions we're supposed to go. I believe that lifting others up and giving selflessly of ourselves makes our journey worth taking. I don't believe in coincidence. We cross into each other's paths for a reason.
I’ve told thousands of stories during my 24 years on local and national television. But somewhere along the way, the news industry I Iong admired lost its courage. News managers caved to an agenda. The evening broadcasts I anchored for more than a dozen years gave up objective reporting for flashy news banners. And far too many of my colleagues traded truth for ego. America’s story turned dark and divisive with headlines screaming of a people who had lost their way.
I am a 21-time Emmy Award winner, with four Edward R. Murrow Awards and a drawer full of other accolades for the stories I told and the newscasts I anchored during my on camera career. But when my business changed, so did I. I believe news is more than a nightly recap of the day's tragedies. It goes deeper than death tolls and mug shots and perp walks. There is GOOD out there. People on every street, in every community, doing remarkable things to make this world a better place.
I believe in a different story. I’ve seen it with my own eyes. And I feel it in my heart. It is GOOD. And it is all around us. Strangers who come together to support the less fortunate. Neighbors who rally around a struggling family. Students who raise money for a special cause. People who plant seeds of hope by getting involved. We KNOW America is hungry for these stories. So we started Positively Wendy Bell to tell them.
Our mission is to change the narrative of news. To tell meaningful stories each of you is proud to share with your children. To produce uplifting videos you want to talk about at work. To create a community where you always feel like you belong.
About Positively Wendy Bell
Wendy Bell’s positive videos on Facebook struck an immediate nerve with fans — reaching more than 10 million people in less than a year. Her messages of hope and inspiration are followed by people across the United States and in 60 countries around the world.
“It’s incredible,” Bell says of her online success. “To have nearly 100,000 people join me and this mission to share good news and positivity… it just tells you how hungry we all are to smile again.” Bell’s heart-felt stories and videos offer a positive perspective to a politically-charged and often divisive climate. Her most popular video reached more than 1.6 million people and has been viewed more than 320,000 times.
“A woman from Pittsburgh reached out and asked if I would interview her son-in-law before he lost his fight with colon cancer,” Bell explains. “I was able to go to his house, sit by his side and record his touching, final words to his beautiful wife and three children. His love story spread around the world like wild fire.” Mike Bauman died one week after his video went viral. “This is real life. Real love. Real people,” Bell says. “It’s not politics or crime or the negativity that’s become the evening news. People are tired of that. They want to feel good again.”
Bell’s 24 years on local and national television laid the foundation for what she considers her calling: To deliver stories of hope and inspiration. And the numbers prove she’s tapped into something. “Nearly 6,000 people shared or reacted to that one video,” Bell marvels. “Thousands more wrote supportive comments and interacted with each other. That’s remarkable. There’s this connectedness. This feeling of community surrounding what we’re doing.”
The 21-time Emmy Award Winning journalist’s written posts have also resonated with fans on Facebook, generating 1.5 million ‘likes’ and more than 250,000 ‘loves.’ Bell says the push from the public to take her talents further sparked the idea behind her website, PositivelyWendyBell.com. "Imagine being part of something GOOD. A place that’s positive and uplifting! THAT is Positively Wendy Bell.”
About Wendy Bell’s powerful message of hope and positivity is resonating across Western Pennsylvania, and her strong following in New York, Ohio and Florida suggests the popularity of her stories is catching on. 79% of her followers are women between the ages of 35 and 54. “To be supported this way by your peers, it’s incredible,” Bell says.
“Women are the decision makers. The household glue. They want to share something positive with their children, just like I do.” Bell often takes her 5 sons with her to speaking engagements and events where she’s asked to provide inspiration. “The American Legion. The YMCA. Church groups, community celebrations and schools,” Bell explains. “I want the boys to see firsthand that we all have the power to make a difference.”

One Book

Wendy Bell
I often wonder what it is about some kids who see big mountains to climb and get busy trying to scale them. Do they come from extraordinary families? Is it really their parents pushing them behind the scenes to get involved and make a difference? Or are some people simply programmed at a young age to see problems and try to solve them? I wish I knew. And I wish I could sprinkle some of that magic dust onto my five sons. I wish one of them had the spark to do something big to benefit others. Like these guys.
Shudipto Wahed and four of his friends saw a need in the world, thousands of miles away from their Pittsburgh homes. So they stepped up, got organized, and started their own non-profit organization called OneBook.
I recently spent some time with the five super-smart students at Shudipto's house where they store, organize and ship thousands of books overseas to students who don't have access to English literature. Watch what happens when people work together to do something special for strangers, half a world away.

Rachel's Challenge

Wendy Bell
MEET RACHEL
“PEOPLE WILL NEVER KNOW HOW FAR A LITTLE KINDNESS CAN GO.”
Rachel Joy Scott
Rachel was born in Denver, Colorado, in August 1982. She was the middle of five children with two older sisters: Bethanee and Dana; and two younger brothers: Craig and Mike.
VISION
We see a school free from harassment, bullying and violence where teachers are free to teach and STUDENTS ARE AWAKENED TO LEARN.
When her name popped up in my inbox, it didn't seem familiar to me. But there was something about it that made me click "open."
I've never met Lynn Como and I've never been to South Park Middle School. Lynn's email explained that she is the school's assistant principal. An educator. A mother of six. A woman passionate about children and the messages we teach them.
So when her student council voted to bring in a presenter from a national organization called Rachel's Challenge, Lynn asked me if I wanted to watch their school-wide assembly. I jumped at the chance.
In the extraordinary hour-long talk I witnessed, a few hundred fifth and sixth graders learned about Rachel Joy Scott, the first person shot and killed at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999. Rachel was only 17 years old when she died, just a few years older than they. That kind of finality has a way of speaking to a child, even one who wasn't even born when the worst-ever school massacre to date caused our country to reel in horror.
Rachel's family always knew she was special. But they had no idea how extraordinary she was until they found five journals in her room after her death. In them, Rachel wrote the most insightful, uplifting messages, encouraging anyone who read her words to remember the power of even the smallest deeds to leave the biggest lasting impact on others.
So overwhelmed by their daughter’s compassion and love for others, the Scott family turned Rachel’s writings into one of the most motivational and powerful school presentations available.
In its 20 years, Rachel’s Challenge has reached some 20 million school kids in all 50 states and across forty countries. But it is here in Pittsburgh where something extraordinary is happening.
More than sixty Pittsburgh schools this school year alone have treated their students to the powerful and moving Rachel’s Challenge presentation… and with remarkable results. We and San Diego are the most active cities for Rachel’s Challenge presentations.
I want to share with you video of what I experienced alongside those students at South Park Middle School. We sat in the darkness in the school gymnasium (hence the grainy video) and were awed by a single young woman's example. I hope that seeing it will, in just the slightest way, encourage you to start what Rachel believed could change the world: A chain reaction of kindness.
INTRODUCING AWAKEN THE LEARNER BY RACHEL'S CHALLENGE. THE DIFFERENCE IN THIS PROGRAM IS THAT THE PROCESS IS THE ANSWER.
Inspired by Rachel Scott's vision to create a chain reaction of kindness and compassion, this program enhances the caring and supportive learning environment of schools, essential for academic achievement. Awaken the Learner motivates and inspires every learner in the educational community.

Surgicorps International

Wendy Bell
If I tried to add up the number of miles they've traveled or the thousands of faces and hands and bodies they've repaired... I'd be sitting at my computer all day. What Surgicorps International does that takes its volunteers all around the world more than a half dozen times every year is truly beyond measurement. After all... how can one quantify the value of a dream coming true?
At some point in each of our lives, we look in the mirror and say to the image looking back at us, "What will it take to make you TRULY happy?" And for the volunteers whose reflection says "To change other peoples' lives forever...." a door opens to this most magical place that most of us know nothing about.
Surgicorps is, to put it simply, a life-changing mission of mercy. It is a group of medical and non-medical professionals dedicated to the ultimate in Paying It Forward. In Giving Back. In Helping the Next Guy. These special men and women trade summer vacations in warm climates with family and friends for trips to destinations unknown. To faraway lands of unspeakable danger to change the face of a toddler or the future of a teen. To make a difference. And to do so on their own dime. On their own time. And to donate virtually every single personal belonging they take with them to villagers who have never seen such a bounty.
I don't know where your path opens up ahead or how the road you're traveling will twist and turn. Perhaps it will lead your heart on a life-changing adventure to help people you don't know and who you'll no doubt never see again. Maybe it won't. But I will tell you THIS. Just being around the love and kindness and goodness of Surgicorps International is enough to rekindle in even the coldest heart the warmth and joy that comes when you help someone else with absolutely no expectation of reward.

Covering the Blue

Wendy Bell
When Diane Baughman Huggins and her children found themselves in the midst of a horrendous crisis, police officers quickly arrived at their Burgettstown home. The comfort and security those men and women provided Diane saved her from the most difficult day of her life.
"I don't know what I would have done, had it not been for those officers," Diane recalled, rocking gently in her living room easy chair as her hands crocheted a long, black blanket. "They quite literally saved our lives."
That experience launched something that would soon become much bigger than Diane: a mission to comfort every single police, K-9 and correctional officer injured on the job.
"It's the thin blue line," she explained to me in a whisper. "And we will never forget."Diane calls it Covering the Blue, a campaign to provide every injured officer a special, hand-made afghan to keep them warm during their darkest times. Fellow knitters and crocheters heard of Diane's plan and joined her. People donated money. Others bought Diane yarn. Her idea took off.
Listen now as Diane explain her mission, her message, and why her work will never be complete.

Mission Mahi

Wendy Bell
There's no way to miss Jimmy Woods' food truck when it passes you on the road. It's painted in a swirl of bright pastels and screams GET DELICIOUS FISH TACOS HERE! But Jimmy cooks up so much more than succulent and perfectly season Mahi on the griddle inside. There's a mission. A ministry. A message. And it has everything to do with addiction.
Come along for a special ride as a Pittsburgh man whose alcoholism and drug abuse nearly cost him his life more times than he can count changes course... and offers a safe place for recovering addicts to work and to heal. A place where others struggling with addiction can come for support and food for their soul.

Shailen Abram The Man in the Mirror

Wendy Bell
When Sharon Elliot gave birth 19 years ago, doctors told her things didn't look good. Her baby was born fifteen weeks premature and weighed just a little more than a pound. He was blind and deaf and would never walk, they said.
"He should be institutionalized," a doctor told Sharon in the hospital. "You won't be able to manage this by yourself." But what the young mother did next was nothing short of remarkable.
Before you ever feel inclined to quit or admit defeat; before you believe the impossible will always be out of your grasp; before you tell yourself that there is no magic in faith; watch Shailen Abram's story.
Despite his challenges -- which are numerous -- Shai teaches us all how to look in the mirror and become the person we wish to see.
