Here’s something awesome: an initiative wherein we are all encouraged to wear name tags on February 8th in order that we become a little more friendly and say hello to each other! The full details are below but there’s not much more to it than that. Amazing.
THE OFFICIAL WORD:
Say Hi Vancouver is a simple idea. Wear a name tag and say hello! Why? We see the same people everyday… in the coffee shop, on transit, at work, even in our own neighborhoods… and we have little or no connection to most of them. We live our lives beside each other, an invisible barrier separating us – subtle yet powerful.
A simple name tag can break through this barrier, giving permission to Say Hi! Even if for just one day it will be worth it! We’ll never see those people the same way again… suddenly they become someone we can say hello to, name tag or not. Imagine the possibilities!!!
Don’t have a name tag? Use a sticky label, cut a square of paper and pin it to your shirt, use a grease pencil and write it on your cheek… be creative and have fun with it!!
