Operation Beautiful was a MAJOR success!

Words cannot describe the joy I am feeling today!!!

As part of my last year on student parliament at my university, I organized a campus wide Operation Beautiful mission. I figured let's go out with a big, positive bang! And let me tell you, this event was huge! The 12 girls and 1 guy that came out to help with this event were all AMAZING people who worked SO hard to promote this event and spread some love. In total we made over 200 sticky notes, and I am so grateful to have had them come help out!

We then went all across campus and posted our sticky notes in every building in the most random places like the washrooms, library, and cafeterias. We even wrote notes in different languages for our international students from all across the world.

After we had sticky-noted the entire campus, we then grabbed some chalk and wrote even more positive messages all over the bridge that connects the westbank and the eastbank of my campus (because we have a gorgeous river that runs right through it).

As always, I don't currently have a camera so crappy phone polaroids will have to do for now. I apologize for the quality of the images, and that this post is image heavy. But I hope you enjoy it nonetheless. ♥

Someone actually took one of these when I went back to take a picture! I was so excited!

The weather was GORGEOUS for this event. The sky was blue and the weather was warm.

This poster has a bunch of notes surrounding it, some blank, some with sayings. Students can take and leave as many notes as they want for each other. This was my friend Emily's great idea!

The entire bridge after being written all over with chalk. I wish it was easier to read what it says

A pretty sun and rainbow over the river, hoping you have a nice day!

Like I said before I am SO HAPPY with how this event turned out and it was great to just sit in my office after we were done and hear random passerby's talking about all the notes and how lovely they were. It really makes you feel good about yourself and other people.
