This February, groups and individuals across the country will be heart bombing the places that matter to them. Heart Bombing is a form of advocacy, a fun and creative way to bring people together and raise awareness about what’s cherished in a community –places both safe and threatened– with homemade valentines that serve as a sort of love letter to places that matter.
But in order to Heart Bomb, first you need Valentines.
On February 8, come sip bubbly, enjoy sweet treats, and cultivate your craftiness at Historic Seattle’s headquarters, the Dearborn House. Next, join Historic Seattle staff and other advocates to Heart Bomb C&P Coffee in West Seattle on February 13 at noon. The historic craftsman building which houses a beloved local business is currently threatened with demolition. Alternatively, take your Valentine out and about and show some love for the places that matter to you. Take a picture and share on social media using #heartbombSEA and #IHeartSavingPlaces to be a part of the local and nationwide love fest. For inspiration, check out some of our past heart bomb activities around Seattle via this slideshow.
Please RSVP if you can attend our Hearts & Crafts event, so we can plan for the treats and tipples!
