We are slowly catching up with the blog, and we have a couple of (he)art bombings from February to tell you all about.

We were contacted by one of the Vancouver, WA, chapters of Roots & Shoots to do a (he)art bombing together. These kids are all grade-school age and work together to plan and execute service projects that will benefit the community. It’s great to see caring and involvement being fostered at such a young age. We decided to (he)art bomb the downtown library since it’s an important part of their lives and a busy place where lots of people will see the message of love that these kids are sharing.

It was an amazingly sunny day for the middle of February. After a brief discussion about installation art and Love is a Radical Act, we set the kids loose to do their (he)art bombing. We gave them ideas about where it’s easiest to hang hearts, but we also gave each kid complete control of where they were going to hang their hearts. Aside from a little adult supervision and assistance, this was their project.

Great job, everyone! Keep on sharing your love with the community and your families!
