Good idea for a take action project: Ryan approached an inner-city school about resurfacing & painting games on the playground. Loving the idea, the principal said he wished someone would someday paint a US map to inspire students to learn their geography. Ryan found a template online, about $ 200, and our troop/friends spent two weekends on the project (about 180 man-hours, total). Free & for-purchase templates are also available for world maps, basketball courts, hopscotch & 4-square.
Little Free Library is a creative idea, thought up by Todd Bol and Rick Brooks, that aims to promote literacy and bring communities together by putting up mini libraries in neighborhoods around the world. Started in 2009, it's a nonprofit that seeks to place these small, accessible book exchange boxes right in front of a house or on a street corner. (Take a book, return a book.)
