A little while ago I started a street art project called The Toy Society and I thought you might be interested in getting involved.
The Toy Society spreads love by leaving ('dropping') handmade soft toys about the place. The project started in Melbourne, Australia and with the help of Whip Up (www.whipup.org
) and craft zine (www.craftzine.com
) it's slowly spreading around the world - The Netherlands, France, Canada, USA with more in the works.
People who come across the toys are invited to take them home and make them theirs. Simple as that, something for nothing. The project is documented at the blog (www.thetoysociety.blogspot.com
) and finders are encouraged to send in the story of how they found their toy.
Everyone is invited to join in and be part of The Toy Society, no matter how experienced you are at making toys. You can make a toy and send it in to be dropped or you can make your own toy and drop it and be featured on the blog. If you'd like to be part of The Toy Society, drop by the blog (www.thetoysociety.blogspot.com
) and leave a comment or email firstname.lastname@example.org
