LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. — When you drive up to Jennifer Hunsinger's house in Lee's Summit, Missouri, you will see a cooler at the end of her drive.

That cooler is filled with motivational and inspirational yard signs for people to take.

"We just love to promote kindness," said Hunsinger. "We make signs that go out in the world that tell people that things are okay, give them a little smile, add a little humor to their day."

She, along with her two teenage daughters, started Project Happiness 4 years ago .

The signs have been a hit.

They've stepped up production and have made 1,000 homemade signs with those uplifiting messages

"You are awesome, have the best day ever, those kinds of things," said Hunsinger.

The signs are spread out across their neighborhood and the city.

"We just wanted to kind of bring out the positive part of this whole pandemic," said Scott Knowles, who lives in the neighborhood.

Hunsinger said she believes her community needs to see some encouragement right now and the signs they are making could help someone.

"People need it. People's mental health is suffering right now, even people that are very optimistic are struggling," said Hunsinger.

The group has a Facebook page where you can learn more about their cause and how to get a sign.
