‘The Compliment Project’ gives free compliments around the country thanks to social media

SAN FRANCISCO — Random compliments are showing up in cities across the country after a San Francisco woman started the trend earlier this month.

Anna Sergeeva hit the streets of San Francisco to leave compliments in random places around the city to spread happiness and positivity.

She calls it The Compliment Project. They are compliments people can rip off on flyers and take with them.

“I feel like I’m doing a marketing campaign for kindness,” Sergeeva told KGO-TV.

Some of the thoughts are “Our world is better because you’re in it” and “Your smile is beautiful,” among other things.

The trend has since spread outside of San Francisco with people sharing the compliments with #TheComplimentProject on social media.

Sergeeva is making it easy for others to join the trend.

Compliment sheets can be downloaded at TheComplimentProject.org.

Sergeeva adds she’s not making any money off the project. She just wants to help bring more love into the world.

“I can’t change the course of the world, but I think just being to get out there and do something small, do something positive and see how it can grow is really fulfilling,” she said.
