    already anticipating for the next ones to see what pops up

  • I am so happy that these are continueing…I really love reading all of them. I want new ones everyday…such a happy thing to read in the morning.

  • Im glad you guys are enjoying the project as much as me and Erin are! There are tons more to be posted and maybe it might be cool to have this as an on-going thing – the response has really been overwhelming.

  • guys…….THIS IS THERAPY !! HEALTHY ONE!

    I FEEL STRONGER with just this in my face in the morning.

    I vote for doing this together.

    It’s like…OUR COMMON WAY TO CALL THE HAPPINNES.

    Priceless.

  • jeff & erin – how about just keep going until people run out or encouraging words, which will likely be a long, long time ;)? encouragement is contagious!

  • haha if i can figure out a way to automate it with like flash or something rather than having to lay them all out randomly in photoshop i would love to see this as an on-going thing…

  • Findlay D

    Wow! I can’t believe how good I feel right now! This is hands up in the air, the coolest project on Earth!

    Cheers Jeff & Erin from New Zealand with Love! BOOOOOOOM

    Thanks for acknowledging my existence.

  • ant

    Thanks booooooom & design for mankind! this is wayyyy toooo amazing!!!!

  • Rodrigo

    If you do find a way of making the process a bit more automatic, please keep the “one post with a lot of new messages!” format, since instant gratification in this case is not as cool as coming in to read a looooot of cool messages.

    Also if you handmade it in photoshop it’s almost like you handmade them in paper. It adds that extra bit of dedication.

    What I mean is, I can see how this can get tedious and time consuming but if you find a way of making it automatic don’t make it a vending machine of emotions!

  • great feedback Rodrigo – yes, the reason i wanted to lay them out (albeit sometimes really randomly) in Photoshop is to make them feel a little more unique and i agree about the feeling of seeing a flood of new ones rather than the “instant gratification” of seeing one new one at a time.

In 2013, Vergara was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Barack Obama, and was the first photographer ever to receive this honour.
