I’m from overseas. The other day, a friend passed away. My second friend in a month. I got no job nor a place to stay tomorrow morning. So I was sitting on a bench near the wharf. I was like frozen I didn’t know what to do next. You know life is hard but there are some days that are really hard. That was one of those days.

As I sit there looking into nothing, along comes this young guy. He talks to me. I think I may have even been rude. I don’t want no preaching, I don’t want to buy nothing. Well he smiled still. He hands something to me. I say what is this for? He simply replied, still smiling, that’s just a present. A chocolate. That’s for you. I think I don’t even say thanks. The place I come from, its a harsh miserable place you now, I’m not used to receiving kindness from strangers.

The thing is, the present wasn’t a chocolate. It was hope and it was love. The tag said simply, you are loved. I remember then that somebody loves me far away. It took me from the dark of that day and made me feel like it wan’t all lost.

It was a week ago. I still keep the tag and read it everyday. You are loved.

Tonight I was on my way back to my hotel after visiting my wife who’s just recovering in hospital from open heart surgery. I was love bombed on Grafton Bridge. For this to happen to me at this difficult time for both of us was fantastic and emotional.

Thank you so much to all of those concerned in this event. Awesome!

I don’t know who you are, but I want to know. I recently received a gift from you. I thought I’m alone in this city, now I’m gonna cry because I was wrong. Im an overseas student. I don’t have words for you guys… God bless you all.

I work in one of the dairy shops on Queen Street and just half an hour ago while working here, I got an extraordinary gift written as ‘THANK YOU FOR SERVING OUR CITY’. I’m gonna keep it forever with me… I am so happy.

I have been having a super long day at work, and lots of things have been happening so I have been feeling quite weighted down and stressed. While sitting at work today, I was lovebombed… Totally made my day.

I am currently six months pregnant, alone with the father not around anymore and although I don’t practice any kind of religion I do find myself complaining to God about not guiding or protecting me like people say he does/should, but most of all lately for not loving me.

I thought because of all my mistakes I was really coming to what I thought was an end in my life, someway, somehow no one cared anymore.

I was secretly brought to tears and thanks when I was given gifts and chocolates from random strangers in Sandringham a few weeks ago telling me I had been love bombed.

My silent prayers and complaints have finally been answered and I can now stop thinking about ending my life and live knowing that at least someone out there loves me even if no one else does.

I just wanted to say thanks for whoever they were and to let them know that they really made my night and shook me up and took me completely by surprise!

Thanks guys.
I really needed that.
I actually really need that.
Thank you so much.

I want to thank ‘Love This City’ for making our day. We have served the public for years and years and this was true sharing. This kind gesture yesterday was so overwhelming…

I’m a bus driver working on Saturday night. A group of young ladies flagged down my bus on Symonds Streetand and gave me gifts of chocolate, sweets and biscuits and the card ‘Thank you for serving our city’. I was chuffed… we rarely get acknowledged and most of the time we get abused and horns honked at us so this was a welcome change. The passengers always thank us as they get off the bus and an external acknowledgement means a lot to me.

So thanks again.

Get Involved

There are two ways to get involved. The first is by turning up on the day to #lovebomb this city. We are often in need of buses or vans to transport people around the city and leaders to look after groups. You can also get involved by donating money to help fund the event or by donating food, gifts and blankets that we give away on the day. All donations go directly towards the event.

Partner With Us

We often partner with social organizations and businesses to #lovebomb our city. We do this in two ways, through gifts and random acts of kindness to people in the community, and through honouring public servants. If you would like to partner with us get in touch.

For more information please don’t hesitate to contact us.
