Acts of kindness. Walking to BART on 24th Street Thursday I watched this older gentleman in front of me pause. He had a cane and I thought he might need help, but he pulled out his wallet and then pulled out a dollar bill and gave it to a man slumped on the sidewalk outside Pizza Rustica. I watched and thought what a beautiful photo/moment his hand reaching out to the man on the sidewalk made.
I told him that it was inspiring and he said in what sounded like an Irish accent, “Well, he needs help or maybe just a beer.”
The Exploratorium comes to the Mission, reports ABC News.
Three teenage club members are the first to step up for this pilot project. They’ll spend a little over a year creating a Parklet in their neighborhood. First they learn sketching and 3D computer design, all the while brainstorming ideas. They did not skimp on the details.
The Exploratorium team is helping the teens combine their designs into a small plastic model using a 3D printer. And, the plans keep getting more elaborate.
The next step is to build a full-size plywood prototype of the Parklet right in front of the Boys & Girls Club building. Finally, the community comes in to test out the proto-type Parklet. WATCH THE NEWS CAST HERE.
