If you wander down to the train station, you can usually pick up some goodies. Often, there is someone handing out tissues to publicize a new restaurant or hair salon. Once, activists were handing out free fans to promote awareness of Hansen’s disease (which used to be called leprosy). Sometimes you can get a red feather if you donate money for…something – I forget. Today there were some grandmas and grandpas distributing cookies embossed with a picture of a woman with arms crossed. I’d never gotten cookies before. Intrigued, I had a look at the accompanying flyer and saw that the campaign in progress was against domestic violence. Well, good for them. That’s a cause I definitely support. And good for them for coming up with such a memorable ploy. It clearly worked because I’m still thinking about it!
