As told by Lizz...
Back in 2018, I saw a post on Facebook where people were painting positive quotes on bathroom stall doors in Texas. I shared it on my own timeline and let everyone know I was willing to do it here in Jacksonville. Fast forward a few months, and I had painted the bathrooms of 12 local schools all in my free time and for no charge.
The waitlist got very long, as you can imagine, and it was almost impossible to get all the schools done and still have free time to spend with my family or to work on my own side business. That’s when I came up with the idea to make vinyl decals!
It’s now over a year later and my vinyl decals have been a #1 seller in my Etsy shop. I’ve shipped to schools all over the country – and even to Canada and Australia – and currently have over 100 designs to choose from, including some in Spanish. Each design is hand drawn and I even do custom orders and colors. It’s been amazing to see the overwhelming positive response and I LOVE seeing all the photos of them installed!
"High school is hard," she said. "And maybe you come to the bathroom to cry or you come in here to talk to your friends and maybe these can kind of help and inspire kids to think positive."
Whether you work at a school or have kids of your own, you can help inspire students by ordering decals though Lizz's Etsy Shop! Read more about Lizz and the giveback work she's doing here!
