Audio messages/voice memos should reflect the caring spirit of the community and can include stories, messages, poems, and notes to combat the feelings of isolation that have grown throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Recordings should a max of 30 seconds in length.

Starting in March, messages can be accessed by using a phone to scan QR codes featured on signage placed in different locations throughout Waterloo. Signage will feature QR codes and the image submitted alongside the message. An online map will show the locations of each of the installations.

You're encouraged to both record a message and to visit and listen to the messages from other community members.

Help us share the hopeful community spirit that Waterloo is known for by showing your support of The Community Happiness Project. Remind your neighbours that we are in this together and will get through this time as a community. Submit your message now.
