Verizon commissions mural in Greenville as part of #ACallForKindness

Basking Ridge, New Jersey, UNITED STATES


GREENVILLE, S.C., Aug. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Verizon is spreading kindness in Greenville, thanks to a partnership with local artists, Girls who Paint Murals - Christine Crawford and Alli Dunavant. Located at 54 Piedmont Highway, it’s all part of Verizon’s national #ACallForKindness campaign which aims to make the world a kinder place, one act at a time.

"We’re known for our collaborative murals. Together we combine my more traditional blended style of painting and Christine's more graphic and bold style of painting,” said Alli Dunavant. “In this image we wanted to promote beauty, happiness, and kindness through the use of large colorful florals. We are excited to be a part of Verizon's #ACallForKindness and thankful to work with Thomas Creek Brewery on our mural."

About the campaign

The #ACallForKindness campaign started in October 2020 with the goal of reminding everyone that we’re all in this together, and a little kindness goes a long way. Since then, we’ve shared a study on the state of kindness in America, and teamed up with two brothers walking across the country to raise money for restaurant workers and spread kindness; and recently launched our Fuel The Love campaign, surprising drivers at local gas stations with free tanks of gas.
