Sammie Vance is giving smiles on Giving Tuesday!
Sammie is best known for her Buddy Bench Project! A buddy bench is an actual bench where someone can sit there and others will know to go up and ask them to play. In 2017, Sammie had the great idea to not only build these benches but to have them made from recyclable material. She worked with Green Tree Plastics and collected recycles plastic caps and lids and turned that into benches. Since then, she has collected enough materials to build buddy benches across the country and has even started other projects such as "Write a Note, Give A Smile"
Last year, over 4,000 participated in spreading kindness through her project and this year she is aiming to continue the goodness! This year we have partnered up and we hope to inspire people to use our Yoobi writing supplies and write kind notes to your loved ones!
