16 Mar Clematis Balloon Day | The Smile Experiments
On Saturday, March 14th, 2015, a few of us decided to conduct a little social/smile experiment. If we brought a large group of colorful balloons down to a downtown street, could we get people to write the people, places, things, principles, or acts of kindness that make them smile.
Needless to say, the answer was YES! After just a short hour and a half, we had well over 250-300+ different sayings, words, names, and items penned all over the balloons.
*We did not release the balloons at the end of the day. It ended up being a chance to leave them tied to a park bench down the street. I found out later that people began stopping and looking through the messages on the balloons for most of the night. Kind of cool tid bit we heard about later. :)*
What an awesome day!
