With less than three weeks to go before Election Day, most Americans are tired of campaign slogans.
But one Sacramento mother has created a new slogan that’s quickly gaining fans.
Amanda Blanc made a “Make America Kind Again 2016” sign for a friend last week. Since then, she’s sold more than 100 signs to people in the community.
“It exemplifies respect. It doesn’t matter what you believe in, and it doesn’t matter what I believe in. We can still all be friends,” Blanc said.
Many of the sign’s buyers are also mothers. They say it’s their kids who highlight the need for a little more kindness in the world right now.
“They hear our discussions, and they hear what’s on TV – what’s on in the background. We have to be very careful. It definitely impacts me, I think, more as a mom now,” Katy Donato told ABC10 News as she came to pick up a sign on Friday.
“I want my child to grow up in a kind world,” Blanc said, explaining her inspiration. “They don’t have to be skeptical of anything. They can go and just enjoy life.”
“Make America Kind Again 2016” signs can be purchased online at Blanc’s Etsy shop.
