‘Buffalove Notes’ Spread Cheer Throughout The Area
When was the last time you either sent or received a love note? Miss it?
Buffalove Notes is a project that was started to help spread some love and positivity around the Western New York area according to WIVB-TV.
Organizer Theresa Donnelly started the group after finding a “funny love note” on her car.
“I took a picture of it and sent it to my friend and then put it on someone else’s car,” Donnelly recalled. “Sometimes days and weeks can feel monotonous, but it gave me that ten minutes of pause like, ‘this is funny’.”
The notes are hand-pressed by Donnelly herself.
“I print each one individually- they’re a little bit imperfect,” Donnelly said.
She then places the notes randomly around the area.
“If I go somewhere that I know something’s happening, I’ll create something that feels topical,” Donnelly said. “I love a good pun- I feel like keeping it funny is the best way to get the message across.”
If you find a Buffalove Note, you should pay it forward and pass it on for someone else to find.
“We hope that it sparks some joy, brings some delight as a surprise, and then maybe they’ll pass them on to someone else,” Donnelly said.
And the group would like more people to get involved in the “buffalove” as well.
“Everything is a Buffalove note- if you write a note to your server, put a heart on someone’s car- send that to me,” Donnelly said. “Let’s see how many people are perpetuating this good neighbors front.”
There’s also a template you can download from the Buffalove Notes Instagram page (under the DIY stories tab) that you can print to mark your message on. You can use the hashtag #remoteBuffaloveNotes to share it to social media.
Positivity has been something that's been sorely lacking after all the setbacks experienced in 2020.
Donnelly says they have fun things planned for Buffalove Notes. You can follow the page here.
