Have you noticed we are overwhelmed by lots of information every day? They come through various canals such as television, social networks, radio, podcasts, etc. We try to get away from it, but still, it’s here. In the news, we are listening about measures which are rapidly changing any moment, however, lots of people don't agree with these rules.
We have spotted that they can't control their emotions and don't respect others on social networks. Even though, they are going beyond. Instead of giving people hope, they are spreading negative feelings all around. The consequence is, we feel safer and better outside than in online life.
Since the beginning our idea was to create something positive, because we want to spread happiness to every person. It was the first collaboration between the two of us and we had a great time through the process. Therefore in our project we decided to gift strangers with a pin. A pin with a smile. We’ve chosen headline „Usmej sa očami” / „Smile with your eyes” because nowadays we can’t see emotions through the mask. And we succeed.
We went to the supermarkets in Michalovce and in Žilina and asked shop assistants to give strangers these pins when purchasing. Reactions were awesome. Shop assistants told us that we made their day and we should have been there to see those smiles customers gave them. Customers were pleased and realised that they should pay more attention to good things.
This project has been created in order to make the day more pleasant for all of us. Don’t let negativity wrap your soul. Get rid of fear and smile with your eyes because smiling is the best way to face every problems. Smile crush every fear and hide every pain.
„Every day may not be good. But there’s something good in every day.”
