ANTI-ISLAMIC sentiment has flooded social media in the wake of the Sydney siege, but there is a campaign gathering steam that will restore your faith in humanity.

A Twitter movement, #illridewithyou, has sprouted with everyday Australians offering to ride on buses and trains with Muslims, or give them a lift to work tomorrow, in order to keep them safe.

The grassroots campaign began with this thoughtful tweet from @sirtessa:

She received such a strong response from the Twittersphere that she suggested the #illridewithyou hashtag. The idea quickly took off, with people throughout Australia pledging their support for Australia's Muslim community.

Well done, guys.

Prominent Aussies and celebrities have also been inspired to join the movement.

One Twitter user has even added a sticker to her bag so Islamic commuters can find her. What a legend.

And now members of the Muslim community have begun to express their gratitude.
