The Crying Project: Tears for Humanity

The Crying Project: Tears for Humanity
The Crying Project is a personal project I started where we cry to aid in the healing of others.

I have started a personal project called The Crying Project. In this project, we ask anybody who feels inclined to send in a video of themselves crying for the greater good of humanity - for instance a person, a group of people or a cause.

Still confused? This video tries to explain it.

 

Transcript of video:

"I came across this video called Dear Woman and this group of men apologizing for other men for the pain that they have caused women.

And these men, through their intention, I could feel the power behind their words. So that's how the seed planned where instead of just telling clients it's okay to cry, how about putting it more public that it's okay to cry?

And actually, I had this idea for some time and I thought, well, I could put a video on me crying and just put it online and there will be all kinds of different responses from different people but what kind of more impact would it be if I get more people involved so that they cry for the people or the causes that they are passionate about too?

And it really came about 'cos I asked around and I kept getting a lot of No's and it just kind of dragged on for some time until I spoke to my friend, Syv, just at a whim. Just... in a group, I said I wanted to do this project: Would you do it? And then she said, "Yes!"

So, when I've got the first yes, it really made me decide: "Okay, now that there's two people, all I need to do is just get a few more." So then I got my friend, Olivia, and then there's three of us.

So we're starting out with the three of us first and I'm trying to get more people involved, crying for the causes that they are passionate about and I'm hoping to get some men involved as well.

And so that's how The Crying Project came about." - Dr. Martha Tara Lee

Watch  the first video of The Crying Project where I am crying for women with vaginismus. Vaginismus is a condition where the woman's vagina shuts down making penetration difficult or impossible. So far, it has gartnered 147 views since it's release on 22 Nov 2013 (less than 24 hours).

We will be releasing the other two Crying Project videos on hand from January 2014. Please help us publicise this project. We are on Facebook, Twitter and of course, YouTube.
