This Social Media Sticker Project Will Seriously Inspire You
Social media isn’t all about online trolls and heartbreaking status updates about what your ex is doing. Sometimes, social media can be heartwarming, like when the hashtag #MyVanityFairCover took over social media after Caitlyn Jenner’s cover reveal of her new identity, showcasing the lives of transgender people. Or using Instagram to promote wonderful charities. Other times, the most difficult life situations, such as Amanda Palmer’s loving tribute to her friend dying of cancer, are documented in real-time. This newest project is proving how amazing it is when bright minds come together with technology to create life-affirming ideas.
Life Spoiler Sticker, a new social media project, takes two basic ideas — images and stickers — and turns them into funny, sweet and touching photos that will make you tear up or laugh out loud.
The idea behind the project is fairly simple. Download the free Life Spoiler sticker or order free stickers online, write your one-sentence message down and photograph it. Send your image to firstname.lastname@example.org, and your entry will be uploaded to the project’s Tumblr site.
Current submissions range from the silly — “A dog will pee here” stuck to the side of red fire hydrant — to the awe-inspiring pregnant belly adorned with the sentence, “She’ll change the world.”

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
