A public art project FROM students at West Side Elementary School in Healdsburg, California, USA, featuring recorded phone messages and laughter from children is making waves on social media. Dubbed the "Peptoc Hotline," the project is designed to offer positive and encouraging mantras and includes children offering advice in their own voices. Advice includes such wisdom as, "If you're feeling up high and unbalanced, think of groundhogs." Another recording offers a large group of crackly, high-pitched voices cheering in unison: "You can do it!" and "Keep trying, don't give up!" The hotline presents an opportunity for the community to enjoy the innocence and positivity of their youngest `member`s, according to Rima Meechan, West Side's principal. "It's joy, straight from the literal mouths of babes," she said of the recordings. The number to call: 707-998-8410.
