This week’s Buddha Belly Badge of Awesome goes to Jon Webster and his youth group in Streetsville, Ontario. Though perhaps not as violent as the KO Cancer event I told you about last week, as the video below shows, this kick-ass pillow fight from a few years ago still packs a great punch.
“We did pillow fights to engage the community, build relationships, inspire people to create and make a difference.” – Jon Webster, organizer
It’s important to find creative ways to stand out and have your message heard. Off-the-wall activities like community pillow fights are great examples of this kind of imaginative campaigning.
And if you like what the youth of Streetsville are doing, here’s another pillow fight video, this one from NYC.
