COLUMBUS, OHIO - Verizon teamed up with Columbus, Ohio, artist Sarah Hout to create a new custom mural to spread the love as part of Verizon’s campaign, A Call for Kindness, to dial up kindness in our communities.

“I'm so honored to be a part of the Kindness Campaign because the thrust of the message is the very beat of my heart,” said Hout, who recently finished painting Columbus’ Kindness Mural at 2338 West Broad St. “Creating artwork that promotes smiles, deep breaths, safe spaces and inspires kind gestures is why I do what I do!”

You can learn more about Hout and her artwork on her website and through her Instagram account at @sarahthehout.

More about the #ACallForKindness 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; 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.
