Sharing the values that make a difference in our communities
Yes the first time I saw a Pass It On bill board was somewhere near the Times Square in New York City but took no note of it - rather remembered just Einstein face teasing at you with the message:
As a student, he was no Einstein - CONFIDENCE - Pass It On.
We were returning satisfied and rewarded with our daughter Rachna and her friends to go back to work next day unwinded after the Independence Day long week-end. We had fulfilling time boating, fishing, a jungle trail on being invited by the birds and animals on the other side of the lake, enjoying comforts with amenities provided by the hospitable Bell family-owned cottage in a picturesque locale in a country side near Bath close to Keuka Lake in the Finger Lakes up State New York. Recollecting the wonderful time spent there visiting next day Hammondsport with delicious fare at Union Block Italian Bistro, sampling at Dr. Frank's Winery nearby and the Watkins Glen State Park near the Seneca Lake, we stopped at Binghemton for the Great Chinese Buffet that was lavish and sumptuous.
We were enjoying driving down past the wonderful valleys of Wyoming, and Lehigh with its tunnel. I saw it again - the first one on Your Family can do incredible things, too – TEAMWORK - Pass It On and another little further down All-American Native American – EXCELLENCE - Pass It On missing one in between. It did not take long to realize that there is some sort of movement here in the US catching on to Pass It On messages that need to be checked once reaching home and be better informed to Pass It On myself!
Pass It On- Hoardings I was looking for. Instead they had many but hoardings ( later, I found that it was on Flickr Yahoo! billboards and hoardings (for uk only). One site even invited you to Heaven! Somewhere I saw the word “billboards” that made me realize it to be the correct and appropriate word for hoardings here in the US. A moment later, it led me right into Pass It On Downloads the web-site by The Foundation for A Better Life. In this day and age, it can be hard to believe an organization’s only goal is to encourage others to do good—but that really is why they exist. Here, you can find out a little more about them.
I learn't that the Foundation for a Better Life creates public service campaigns to communicate the values that make a difference in our communities – values such as honesty, caring, optimism, hard work, and helping others. These messages, communicated utilizing television, theaters, billboards, radio, internet, etc., model the benefits of a life lived by positive values. The Foundation encourages others to step up to a higher level and then to pass on those positive values they have learned. These seemingly small examples of individuals living values-based lives may not change the world, but collectively they will make a difference. And in the process help make the world a better place for everyone. After all, developing values and then passing them on to others is The Foundation for a Better Life.
I enjoyed the content and thought it better to share with you all to Pass It On.
