Today is the day the 24 Hour Box Makeover Project set as a deadline for Sun Media to clean up its tawdry newspaper box act.
“Over the past two weeks we have seen many of the dirty and abandoned 24 Hour newspaper boxes that have been posted on our blog www.24HourBoxMakeover.tumblr.com replaced with brand new ones,” Rolyn Chambers, movement founder, says in a blog posting.
“I think we have lit a fire under their collective asses. The countdown is on to see how many boxes will be cleaned up or replaced by the September 17th deadline.”
Volunteer artists were prepared to makeover unsightly boxes after the deadline.
