Right now, more than ever, we need some positivity in our lives. With Covid isolation that has kept family and friends apart and all the contention that comes with an election year, people all over the United States are worried, stressed, and could use a little pick me up. So, the 2020 Chalk the Walk has come at a perfect time and has given us at Heart ‘n Home some extra motivation to share some love.
The third Tuesday of August is the worldwide Chalk the Walk event and Heart ‘n Home has been participating in this event for the last 3 years. Because of all that’s going on in the world today, we’ve decided that one day of chalking just wasn’t going to be enough this year. Instead, the Heart ‘n Home offices in Idaho and Oregon have used the last three weeks to spread some joy in their communities.
What started out as a simple idea to spread some positivity ended up blossoming into something HUGE! On a company-wide scale, we were able to partner with other agencies as well, including chalking senior center and facility sidewalks for residents and seniors to enjoy, in hopes of lifting their spirits. Community businesses helped spread cheer to others around them. We were able to recognize hardworking essential workers in our communities. And families spread the love in their own driveways.
We’d love to share the hundreds of pictures that we captured but instead will share highlights from some of our office’s activities. Hopefully, you saw some of these chalk designs in your town, but if not, enjoy these fun photos instead.
We encourage you to continue in our efforts to spread joy and positivity. If you have some sidewalk chalk, have your family design colorful messages on your sidewalks or driveways. Not only will it get you out of the house to do something fun, but it will brighten the day of all that see it! In closing, remember to be kind, spread love, and rise while lifting others!
