Feel Good Friday | Positivity in a Post-It

When ┬áCaitlin Prater received a nasty note on Facebook urging her to commit suicide, she transformed the negative energy into a campaign of positivity. The Canadian high school student put her school supplies to good use–specifically those Post-Its– by writing uplifting notes on every single locker in George McDougall High.

The encouraging act was considered litter by McDougall, but after businesses started adopting the Post-It Postivity the town of Airedrie dedicated October 9th Positive Post-It Day. Hooray! Bullies: 1 Caitlyn: Hundreds

So, who knew funnyman Epps had a serious side? Like most of you, whenever I look at him I can’t help but drudge up this memory…and it still brings tears to my eyes. Hehehehe.

Hope that was a nice walk down memory lane,┬ábut this time the actor/comedian is tapping into his serious side by talking to kids about his anti-bullying campaign. He visited Niagara Falls, New York last week to not only collect some accolades–he received the key to Cataract City, but also share his experiences being bullied as a child.
