Dori here! Today I get the honours of talking about a little project I started. It's called Goodfiti, and that's because it's a graffiti project that's only aimed at good & positive things. This means that there is no pointless graffiti involved.

Its main purpose is to replace all bad graffiti with good graffiti on places which get tagged very frequently. Especially at public places such a bike paths, where people walk by every day, even young children. I hate that they are being exposed to curse words and dirty images, and I want to prevent that or at least help minimize that.

The things I hope to use the most are positive words, phrases and quotes. Little things that have meaning but aren't extremely long. I make all of these words using bristol board to create stencils. This way they're neat.

Here are some photos of what I've done so far. It isn't much, but everything starts out small. I'm looking forward to doing a lot more soon, and I could use some help! If you'd like to send me some positive words, phrases, or quotes, post them on this post and I might end up using them.

There are plenty of similar projects out there and I hope it spreads all over the world. Do you think this could make a difference? Let us know your opinion.

Thank you!

I'm so glad you guys like it! That means a lot!

I've actually told this project to some friends who actually shut me down and told me it's pointless or it won't do anything. Yeah, some "friends" I have, huh?

Thanks again.
