In May 2013, our friends at Big Sunday (the awesome nonprofit behind the nation’s largest day of community service) invited us to create a one-day art installation for Big Sunday 2013. Our location was The Grove and Farmer’s Market, one of LA’s hottest, most visited shopping destinations, right in the middle of the city.

Our goal was to create an vibrant, eye-catching, interactive way for shoppers and passersby to listen to each other’s hopes. Our solution: our first ever Hope Balloon Exchange! Visitors to The Grove were invited to write their hope on a blank Hope Chronicles balloon. Then, they exchanged that balloon for one that had another visitor’s handwritten hope on it. Finally, they were asked to carry that balloon around with them throughout the day, always remembering their neighbor’s hope.

By the end of the day, we had handed out more than 300 balloons to people from all over Los Angeles. That’s 300 important hopes from kids, adults, and everyone in between that were exchanged with neighbors. Plus, The Grove and Farmer’s Market got a super-fun, colorful, beyond vibrant makeover!

Check out the photos below for a quick look at the event!


 Thank you for making this such a happy and nice event. I’m so happy we could all work together this year.”
