A couple of weeks ago I asked my Facebook friends to give me the names of people they thought really needed a pick-me-up. Maybe they had a bad break-up or a bad year or a bad whatever. I told them it had to be someone I didn’t know. Once I had three names, I asked my friends a few questions about the people they picked. One guy really loved his pet cat and iguana, one loved the movie Dirty Dancing and the other had just biked the entire length of the west coast of the US.
It was super fun to make the custom designs and I felt awesome writing them notes and then mailing them anonymously!
Next holiday season I want to start earlier and make custom pieces in exchange for a $25 donations to the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless. In fact, if anyone out there has a request, I could start now!
