Martijn van Osch's good morning project aims at using one simple phrase to brighten up everyone's day. After noticing the power that a simple "good morning" had to make the people around him happier, van Osch started 'goodmornings.org' as a platform for people to greet the world in the morning. Users can upload a short clip of themselves saying "good morning" to help brighten up the world.

The inspiration behind this project came from the frowning faces van Osch noticed on his way to work. Instead of becoming just another grumpy face, van Osch decided to say "good morning" to everyone he passed. The positive effect this had on him and the people around him became the driving force behind this project.
