Summer Voices | Kelly Rae Roberts | Kindness Changes Everything

Been seeing these online and was inspired to create my own. Been putting them up around town. Awesome kindness mission!

I'm on vacation this week and have invited some friends to share their voice here during my time away. Say hello to Kelly Rae Roberts:

Completely and totally inspired by this sign that I stumbled upon online, I decided to make some signs of my own - mine are a bit more artful/pretty but the original message is still so powerful just written on a piece of paper with a black pen, no?

My son and I had the best time making color copies at Kinko's and heading around town putting these up in cafes, grocery stores, and more. I have to say, this is the best way to lift a tough mood, get inspired, and spread some love. There's nothing more heartfully delightful then heading into a grocery store, tacking up this sign by the entrance, only walk out a few minutes later with many of the tabs pulled. LOVE!

I say we all make signs like these and put them up in our neighborhoods, playgrounds, gyms, by atm machines, and on and on. Wouldn't that be awesome? If you do it, be sure to share yours on your blog - let's start a revolution. Because, you know, kindness changes everything.

If you're not up for making your own sign, feel free to download the one above that I made. Just click here to download the pdf, then just hit print, and off you go!

    Great idea!

    Also just wanted to say, I wanted to comment on the previous post for a chance in the giveaways (Sponsor Giveaways | Evalicious, Kelly Rae Roberts, Lisa Leonard Designs), but the comment section seems to be closed even though it's only 7:29am PST. :-( sad, for me.

    Oh well.


    Thank you.

    I LOVE this idea especially right now. I live in Aurora, Colorado and we are hurting as a community right now. I think I am going to print some of these this week and put them up around here. Thank you for this! :)
