There were times in my life, many years ago as a single mother, when I had to depend on the Food Bank more than once. Waiting in that long line was depressing beyond words. So after my second visit, I went home, created a large poster of calligraphy-written uplifting quotes about surviving hard times, and took it back to the Food Bank to cheer that long wait in the line. It didn’t cost me anything since I always had markers and a roll of paper for my boys to be artistic on (free ‘end-of-roll’ from a local print-shop), and the cost of the drive was minimal in my tiny Toyota back then. If I had come out of the Food Bank to an inspiring quote on my windshield (never mind the lotto ticket) that would have really made my day. This video inspires me to put uplifting notes on cars outside of unemployment offices and Food Banks. What do you think?
