Public HeART felt

We brought our hearts together at TEDActive and publically peaced our lost with found.

Some pinned their heart to red felt, remembering lost loved ones.

Charlotte’s hand made stencils of Amy’s hands, and hands on hearts on tees…

quickly made new friends, and found their way to the TEDActive stage;

where our public heART throb, miss amy kr, lifted our hearts with this sweet farewell:

and the countdown begins…with this playlist!

Greetings and salutations from your pals at the TEDActive PUBLIC heART “Lost and Found” project.

We’ve put together this eponymous playlist for your listening and getting-psyched-while-you-pack pleasure.   9 Lost and Found songs total. Some artists will undoubtedly be familiar, some may be new finds we hope you’ll be happy to discover.   And thanks to Grooveshark, you can just click and listen…

PUBLIC heART Lost and Found Playlist

Not sure if we’ll be posting on the blog again before this all goes live next week (!) so here are 3 quick nuggets of note:

1.   If you missed our original post/intro about the PUBLIC heART Lost and Found project (where all you need to participate is a pen and your own personal truth), here it is.

2.   If you like things that fall under the theme of Because We Can, We Did, you might enjoy seeing how our project popped up in various Craigslist Lost and Found sections around the country.  Here is one listing titled Lost: My Sense of Humor.

3.  Finally, our Lost and Found hero… 84-year-old Henry Morello who recently took a wrong turn in the desert and ended up being stranded for 5 days. Survived by being creatively resourceful…and lucky.  Read his beautiful lost and found story via Huffington Post here.

See you all very soon!
