Subject: Volunteers wanted for the "Say 'hi' to your neighbor campaign"
Spring has sprung - isn't this a good time to say "hi" to your neighbor? Unfortunately, it seems, many of our neighbors have recently moved from places where saying "hello" on the street was not the custom. They look at you strangely, when you say "hi." Or they avert their eyes. That makes me sad! One of the things we loved most about Ledroit Park and Bloomingdale when we moved here was that everyone said "hello"!
But all is not lost.
I am looking for a few volunteers who want to bring back the "neighbor" to our neighborhood. I am thinking of a small behavior change communications campaign. We'll make flyers! We'll walk the streets, smiling! We'll have fun!
Please email me directly at Hi_Campaign@hotmail.com if you are interested in volunteering. (A simple "hi" between neighbors is the first step toward building community!)
