Saying thank you through art

Karen wanted to encourage people to be kind to essential services workers. So she painted a big ‘thank you’ sign and put it up at the entrance to Healesville.

After losing her job early in the lockdown, Healesville resident Karen was feeling a bit down. “Usually if I am down, I find doing nice things for other people is what I do to feel better.”

After hearing about a young supermarket worker having a hard time at work, Karen grabbed a piece of spare wood from her garden and painted a thank you sign. Each couple of days she would make another sign to thank the people who were working to keep us all fed, safe and looked after.
