Bombs Away


Last week I gave you a sneak preview of my June Shineworks project and promised that this week I would share the story behind the story.

The story of Shineworks is simple. Each month repurpose an everyday household item and use it to spread shine in someone's corner of the world.

The story behind the story is what makes Shineworks so much more fun than your average craft project and so much more creative than a typical random act of kindness. It's really the best of both.

Or as I like to say, it's where creativity and community meet.

This month we used sponges and hair bands. Lots of them

To make sponge bombs. Lots of them.

Then on Friday morning, Richard, Matthew, Jack, and I headed to the hottest place in Key Largo we could think of, that would be chock full of kids.

Summer camp.

And in the wee hours of the morning we hung a sign, filled a galvanized wash tub full of water, and left the 40+ sponge bombs smack in the middle of the tennis courts at Founder's Park.

Shineworks is the perfect combination of getting creative while giving to your community.

Cool, right?

Check back in early July to discover what item we will be using in July. And consider playing along.
