digital handshakes, everywhere.

Even with good intentions, it can be overwhelming and difficult to know how to welcome someone to a new country. That’s why we want to present the digital handshakes. A handshake is as easy as a like-button, except that it does make a difference in a person’s life. Physical distance and language barriers don’t matter anymore – now everyone can receive a personal welcome, one handshake at a time.

“The handshake is one of the highest forms of symbolic currency with the power to unite. It is a simple gesture that can be more informative to people than a whole host of grand speeches. It is also a “universal norm of reciprocity” and its rejection sends a powerful message.”
