Neighbors say "thank you" to Dr. Fauci

The Washington Post reported on the efforts of the Bergstrom family to recognize their neighbor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Landon parent Ida Bergstrom came up with the idea to sell "Thank you Dr. Fauci" yard signs after a neighbor asked about the one she had created and placed in her yard. Every other day, her sons (both Landon students) collect a list of addresses from their mother, fill their backpacks with signs, and crisscross the neighborhood to fulfill orders. They install the signs in the ground themselves, placing them near other lawn signs or strategically positioning them to face an intersection where drivers are likely to see them.

The Bergstroms have sold nearly 200 signs. The initiative also has spread far beyond the neighborhood. Ida Bergstrom says, thanks to this endeavor, they have donated around $2,500 to Life Pieces to Masterpieces, an organization that, though art, helps African-American boys transform their lives and communities.You can find the full article here.
