I love that someone is finally raising awareness about this issue, I am fed of seeing inconsiderate people taking disabled people’s parking spots because they’re closer or there aren’t any spots available. The Arabic text on the bus translates to “Their place is for them”, indirectly saying it’s not for you. You can read my story when I fought people to stop parking on the disabled parking spot.
It’s nice to see every once in a while people all over the world do something that is life changing for a person that was wronged. Karen Klein is a bus monitor that got verbally harassed by the 12 – 15 year old boys she was supervising. After the video went viral on YouTube a fundraiser was issued by her name and so far has raised $447,027 with 29 days to go! The initial fundraiser goal was just $5,000. She can now retire with her lifetime covered.
Update: Donations have hit $600,00. With 28 days to go a million doesn’t sound far fetched!
I posted about an ad that can kill someone by a funeral service so I thought it would be fair to also post about an ad that could save someone. This ad was made by The Martin Agency advertising agency for career builder to encourage unemployed people on high floors staring at buses to go find a career on their website. At least that’s what it looks like.
We keep getting those emails with pictures of ways of advertising we never really thought of. Yet rarely do I see a creative advertisement locally. Spotted this in Kuwait City, it’s not the most creative ad out there, however it’s definitely a start. It’s great seeing companies thinking outside the box to attract ones attention, ethically that is.
