If I came across $1,000 worth of bouncy balls (super balls), it would come to about 4,000 of those toys. What would I do with them? Something unexpected. Something inspirational. I’d take a permanent black marker and write things like “46/7” and on the other side, I’d write, “Look it up.” Of course, if the balls were really, really small, like the size of a marble, I’d write the initials of a childhood cancer warrior and/or angel. On bigger ones, I would write out “Childhood Cancer Awareness” and on the other side, “Wear gold for a cure.”
I’d maybe do little cards to go with them – buy some index cards, cut them in half, or maybe not. And I’d write the statistics of childhood cancer on them, maybe a few stories of warriors/angels. I’d leave them everywhere I went… carry a permanent marker in my purse and those little cards and buy a bouncy ball whenever I see a machine with them. Or order them by the dozen from amazon.com. Leave them in stores, restaurants, wherever I went. They’d be my version of awareness bracelets. Bouncy balls would go anywhere, maybe a lot further than the bracelets.
This is such a good idea. I am gonna do it. Look out, America. You’re about to be bombarded with bouncy balls.
