The community was inspired by PostSecret, a blog where people anonymously mail postcards containing their secrets to Frank Warren, the site’s founder. Warren believes the internet can bring people together in new ways and offers the opportunity for anyone to make a positive impact on the world.

The white-hat rendezvous grew out of an anonymous postcard on the blog that read, “I take comfort in the darkness of the movie theater, waiting for someone else to come alone, too. I know you’re out there. Maybe some day we’ll meet.

Thousands have exposed themselves anonymously on PostSecret. There are no rules accompanying the simple premise: Your secret can be dirty, malicious, stupid or light-hearted. Warren will post it, and no one will judge.

What’s more, PostSecret doesn’t cost Warren a penny. And the PostSecret community has raised $500,000 for 1-800-SUICIDE, a suicide prevention hot line. Warren said there are plenty more opportunities for people to benefit society using the internet as a tool.

“PostSecret was just one simple, crazy idea, but I think there are 1,000 or 10,000 other ideas out there right now as good as PostSecret or better — just waiting for that one person to believe in it and make it happen,” Warren said.
