Happy Heart Hunt: A neighborly way to spread love that’s truly heartwarming

The Happy Heart Hunt started with a teacher and now it's taking over neighborhoods and social media.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Have you seen hearts on your neighbor’s door or windows? It’s a movement taking over neighborhoods across the nation and right here in Greensboro.

It apparently started with a teacher in Wisconsin, who just wants to show her students love while they’re out of school and practicing social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic.

People are cutting hearts out of construction paper, then getting creative, and placing them on their doors and windows. It’s a welcome surprise to those walking by homes while trying to get out of the house.

It also reminds us all to spread a little love in this world while coming together and social distancing during the pandemic.

There's even a Facebook group to share your Happy Heart Hunt photos!

What is your neighborhood doing to spread love and joy? You can text us a photo and include your name and location to 336-379-5775.

WFMY News 2 want to focus on the things that bring us all joy. Tell us what brings #Joy2You. Text us at 336-379-5775 or share your pictures or videos on Facebook.
