Happy Earth Day
Posted by Virginie Leveque on Apr 22, 2016
Today, on this wonderful website, where every corner you turn you see someone spreading kindness and joy around the world, we would like to share with you the story of our family project :)
Last weekend, Augusta Ga celebrated Earth Day one week in advance at the Phinizy Swamp Nature Park. We participated in the event and our message was to spread the word about how plastic bag pollution hurts our loving Mother Earth and most importantly what we can do about it. We exposed the reality of this issue and suggested ways to help on displays. The major part of our action was to give away reusable shopping bags along with a SMILE card :)
As we were working on this project, naturally, as we got closer and closer to the Earth Day festival, we came up with more and more fun ideas to make our booth more attractive and help focus our message : a Rainbow Tree with leaves to write Earth Day pledges on, a coloring table with drawings from Sparks of Creativity’s young artists, a prize wheel with questions about our displays and with prizes such as beautiful Tsunamika dolls and lovely Peace Doves (thank You, my dear friends,Yoo-Mi and Mindy, for your support! It meant a lot to us! :)), candies, homemade bookmarks, pencils and chalk.
On this very day, we were so excited to carry out this project, it felt amazing! (“For it is in giving that we receive” St. Francis of Assisi… right?! :) )
It turned out to be a wonderful sunny day, filled with so many happy smiles!
We were so grateful to be able to give our deepest love and connection to our generous Mother Earth.
Dear all, over the past years, your inspiration, your warmth and kind spirit has given us wings.. We love performing anonymous and random acts of kindness and this is because we have been learning so much from your amazing stories and shares. Thank you for inspiring us with so much generosity and kindness! Thank you for all the beauty you create every day and for living and giving with such a generous and loving heart! You have showed us that kindness is not an act, it’s a lifestyle :)
Finally, I would like to extend a special thanks to you, Mish, mon amie. You have brought a wealth of insights and color into my life. Thank you for lighting up my heart with your beautiful spirit and joyful texts!! Thank you for being so “You”! :)
Sending bright rainbows and much love to all of you!
Virginie and family
