Take What You Need Project

10:35 AM

Hi! Hola! Hope you all are well on this Monday morning! :D 

I'd like to share a project I joined in on yesterday! It is called: "Take What You Need" Project & how I got involved was, I first saw this image below on facebook, by my friend Coya Paz.
& I was intrigued!! I commented with something like: "this is great! I love it! I want to make one too..." & then I found my friend Coya, (from Chicago) was inspired to do this when she saw Trica (from Atlanta, Georgia) post hers earlier that day!

and that was it folks, I was hooked! The project has crossed state lines! How awesome would it be if more and more people joined in from all over? Put them up in their cubicle, at the train stations, in their school or anywhere else they could think of. 

 If along your walk, you come across this paper in the street, would it catch your attention? Would you take one? Would he? Would she? Would you be intrigued? Dismissive? shy to take one?

how many times I have been waiting at a bus stop & just needed a lil' prayer, a lil hope, a lil' patience... how many times I have walked past buildings and light posts & see ads for apartments, lost cats, or cars for sale... 
         but never a paper with a words that moved me... with words that 
       I may need to see or read that day, at that very moment...  

so I had to join in on the project yesterday, me & my friend went & put up about 6-7 flyers around the neighborhood...

I am curious to see how people react, if any will dare rip what they need off the paper... what they're reactions will be...

I wish I could record what happens & share it with you all, but alas, all I could do is put them up and visit them later... & see if any tabs were taken....

please, by all means, take what you need...

Please join the Facebook fanpage we started up yesterday! It needs some "like" love & help spread the word about this project that is happening in Atlanta & Chicago right now.... will you join the project?

  7. I've attempted for your previous 35 a long time to drop and Preserve OFF my stomach extra fat. I have attempted pretty much all the things from diet program system tablets, private trainers, each and every foods prepare ever proposed, I at this time pay out on two gymnasium memberships, at any given time, as well as have not had the time for you personally to utilize the benefits of each amongst them in in excess of a year. I have to state that only stage that helped me diets to lose weight for men hoping the atmosphere, ease and also the availability of your services currently being opened from 5:00a.m until finally ten:00pm would inspire me to remain on course, attend lots of the cardio classes, aquatics classes, stage classes etc…
