This wonderful, enthusiastic guy arrived at my door this morning (right as I was finishing the rock painting live video). He was incredibly warm and effusive about the work I am doing and the Spread Love campaign. He got 3 signs and I felt he deserved a rock too. As we were taking the selfie, I learned he trained under my father-in-law and he then shared more positive thoughts and memories with me. What a way to start my day!!
#SPREADLOVE...IT MATTERS!! #PAINTROCKS it lifts the soul!!
Thanks to the amazing Jenna Baker, Rainier Dance Center & people walking by, Spread Love Rainier Beach, was a smashing success. Not only did we sell lots of signs hoodies and shirts but we met incredible people who are excited to join the #spreadlove2017 campaign.
Here are a few crazy Facebook Live videos shot on the way to the pop up.
So excited that these arrived today...Just go waterproof stickers for back of signs w/ orgs Spread Love is benefitting and how a person could get a sign and more. If you already have a sign, let me know if you want one for your sign.
I just got the BEST hook up ever!! Harley & Peace Vans have given me the best gift ever. Owner Harley Steiner is gifting the Spread Love 2017 campaign the use of a VW van for a few weeks. Loading & unloading my SUV everyday has been a bit crazy. The truck has been filled to the gills and then I have to drive soccer carpool...the campaign is definitely making me stronger in many ways but I am now so excited that Spread Love 2017 can now hit the road in style and my schlepping day's are in the rear view mirror.
This morning, as I was running around town my phone ring. On the other end was the sweet voice sharing with me that she had walked past a sign in Madrona a few days ago and could not figure out where it was from but so badly wanted one for her house. Today, thanks to Barbara Staley, Helen was able to connect the dots and came to my house to pick up signs and a sweatshirt.
After sharing niceties, Helen shared how much it meant to her that I was doing this. She shared that in the '60s she remembers being asked during job interview if she was taking birth control. She had to lie and say no in order to get the job. She landed the job and every Thursday she loaded up her VW bus and drove to New York to volunteer with abortion services. At the time, NY was the only place legal abortions were being done. Every week the location had to change because of protesters. She shared how women of all different backgrounds, ethnicities, socioeconomic classes....marrie...
Tonight, after my soccer carpool duties were complete, I pulled off the road to catch my breath. The peaceful, serenity that enveloped me was unbelievable. A walk down the T-Dock that I will never forget.
Just over 2 wks ago, I took the leap of faith buying 200 signs, hoping people would want one and join the Spread Love campaign. Last night, I took inventory.
I have now sold approx 1,450 signs, 450 shirts and 100+ hoodies!! And that number will continue to grow. I have new items coming (kids shirts, bumper stickers, beanies and trucker hats) and next week I will be donating the first seeds of love to all the organizations.
Please help me continue to grow this campaign. Signs are heading out to all corners of the country but it is just a trickle. Right now I feel like we are knitting a LOVE net...Help me create and spread a huge, thick ❤️ blanket.
Find all products in the shop section on this FB page. You can buy 5 signs and get one fre...
Jenna Baker blew me away today. She sent a message that she was trying her best to get to my Pop Up in Cap Hill, coming from W. Seattle. She and so many other strangers who have quickly become friends are more than the icing on top of the cake making spread Love 2017 campaign worth throwing al the energy I have to help it reach far and wide. I have very few finished rocks left as I have been a little tied up. This one I found last night. It was sitting on my porch, drying from weatherproofing. It was as if it was just waiting for Jenna to arrive!! Perfect home for this #seattlerock. I can tell Jenna is doing amazing things in this city and #sherocks!!
I love that the first home for one of her signs is at her dance studio in Rainier Beach!
A friend in Tacoma shared this with me today. So great! #spreadlove2017
It may seem like a small message to put in your yard or a small gesture to leave a note sharing your feelings but nothing is too small! Little things, done over and over can create a big impact. Join the movement!
Beth has been a #spreadlove ROCKSTAR! Not only is she sharing countless signs w/ friends and family, she has brought the first local business, Cafe Javasti, on board the Spread Love train.
