To raise spirits during the pandemic, Jurni Bayoc began writing messages of hope in parks across St. Louis. She started in April and has already written close to 70 messages. “I needed something to get out of the house to do that didn’t involve going places so I was like, 'okay I’ll just go out and chalk,'" said Bayoc. Since April, she's gone through about 50 boxes of chalk. She said she wants to make people happy.
