Speak Up With Jimmy: Can 'The Love Mob' Change the World? (VIDEO)


Can you transform the world by gathering people together on a street to cheer, sing and express love? To find out, I interviewed Preston Smiles, founder of The Love Mob, the organization behind "organized acts of love" -- flash mobs -- that support various causes and messages.

Preston happened to schedule a love mob in Los Angeles on Dec. 15, 2012, which turned out to be the day right after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Ct. That love mob attracted 1,000 people and was an expression of love for victims of violence around the world.

Since then, Preston has continued these efforts with The Love Mob and discusses with me the unique power of gathering people together to express love.
