It’s really important during this period of social distancing to stay connected. However, that is not always easy, especially for those who are living by themselves. We all need to know that we are not alone, and we think there are a few simple things that we can do to put a smile on someone’s face and show people that we do care. Just recently, there has been a lot of media coverage of people sending good-will messages to others through projects such as the Rainbow projects or Chalk your Walk project, and we think it would be fun to get this moving here in Warsaw.
We are setting the challenge for you to start to ‘Step Up, Step Out’ by leaving an inspirational or supportive message for others to find and enjoy, and here’s how:
Use only natural materials that are sensitive to the environment that they are going in to. (You don’t want to be seen to be littering a beautiful walk way).
- Use a lollipop stick to write a message on. Some people have used wooden pegs. These can then be tagged to a tree, or pushed into the ground on the side of a path.
- Paint a rainbow on a stone and leave it on the edge of a path
- Write a message of support on a stone and leave it on the path or on a part of the walk where others will see it, but not where they will cause a nuisance.
- Write a chalk message on the pathway.
When you have done this, take a photo and send it in. We have set up a Firefly page for your photos.
Think of the joy that you will give to others when they find your messages.
