Twelve at Twelve on January 12

Today is January 12, 2010 and if you live in Tucson, wherever you happen to be at 12 noon, city officials are asking that you stop, look around, and collect whatever trash you see . . . for twelve minutes.

There’s no sign-up involved, no report required, just an eye for litter, two hands for collection, and a trash bag.
I have my own beautification project this morning—a hair appointment—which could have me sitting in the stylist’s chair at 12 noon. If so, I promise to sweep up my follicles. If I’m finished, I’ll be the blonder, more perfectly coiffed woman picking up the stuff I usually run past during my morning workout.
Twelve minutes at Twelve Noon Today. Let’s help keep Tucson beautiful.

  1. Hi Michele,
    Yes I live in Tucson, but outside the City Limits.
    However at Noon, I was on the Computer and didn't see your Note.
    I didn't see it mentioned in the morning paper either.
    My exercise of choice is Swimming on a Masters Team.
    Hope you look beautiful!
    Take Care.

  2. A worthy project! I have an uncle in Arizona, and I'm sure he appreciated the follicle sweep. 😀


    This is just a quick note to let you know I left you an award at my blog:

    from the desk of a writer

    I haven't talked to you in a while! I hope the writing is going well. College and all has me swamped. Just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you and wishing you the best.


    Take care,
    Corra 🙂
