Charli joined the Balloon Release fun today with FIVE balloon bouquets set free in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
She picked red and orange balloons as they matched the clothes she wore today. The lady at the store asked if they were buying balloons for a party, but Charli told her they were for a Nationwide Community Outreach Art Project. I like that.
Another cool tool is the "Secret Message Inside" card, or something else that would catch someones attention. The card protects the postcard from being bleached blank in the sun, and the message encourages passerby to pick up the card.
Hi Charli. You should know at this point that in Cambridge it was 20 degrees Fahrenheit today. (My mailman shivered and said "It's gonna get cold today". I asked him how cold and he answered "Down to 45"! Some postal worker in Massachusetts hates him now.)
Hey Charli, I often have to resort to that ribbon in the mouth technique. Today I had to stalk a balloon down, stomping my big feet on the ribbon before it lifted from the ground. All that while holding other balloons and a camera.
Far away and going fast. Charli has plans to release more balloons in the future. Of course all of her launches will be logged here, so let's hope some get found soon. In the meantime, visit Charli to read her blog.
