She is asking for lyric submissions for songs using the MY COUNTRY ‘TIS OF THEE tune (as so many others have done in the past to support their good causes).  Since Project PUT needed a theme song, we decided to compose lyrics to this tune for our song.  We submitted them to Ms. Murphy’s website:

Claire Rudolf Murphy very kindly posted this shout-out for us on her Facebook Page:

Project PUT at Indianapolis Children’s Museum and Tree of Promise

Spring Break 2014, Eloise went with me to visit family in Indianapolis.  We absolutely had to stop at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis because it is one of my favorite places in the world.  the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is a wonderful, magical place.

We were excited to find there THE TREE OF PROMISE, supporting THE POWER OF CHILDREN to make a positive difference by serving their communities.

Eloise wrote a leaf and entered the PROJECT PUT message into the TREE OF PROMISE.

Eloise wrote:

“I will Pick Up Trash to keep our home and city clean.  www.ProjectPut.wordpress.com”

Eloise’s message to the TREE OF PROMISE electronic database:

“I promise to Pick Up Trash with my program Project PUT: Pick Up Trash and my blog http://www.ProjectPUT.wordpress.com”

**********************

TREE OF PROMISE mentioned in this PDF classroom resource at the Indianapolis Children’s Museum
http://www.childrensmuseum.org/sites/default/files/Documents/Educators/3-5_POCRubyBridges_UOS.pdf

Eloise has successfully engaged in Lesson 3 of this document (p. 44), which says:

Lesson 3
The Tree of Promise: Making a Difference
In this lesson students…consider the roles and responsibilities of citizens in a democracy. They identify ways young people can make a positive difference in their own communities. They consider how their interests and abilities relate to problems and needs they want to address. After researching and selecting a problem, they develop an action plan, carry out their projects and evaluate the results…

BlogDogIt Makes Marvelous and Generous Contributions to ProjectPUT

We are very grateful to BlogDogIt (Michael (masodo) DeBurger) for some very appreciated contributions to the Project Put movement.

BlogDogIt found his way to the Project PUT blog since we put his video to use in one of our posts about the Pitch In to Clean Up America Campaign produced by the US Brewers of America in the 1970’s:

BlogDogIt appreciated the Project PUT effort and took an interest.  He made us an incredible suite of logos which we love and will use to represent the movement:

*
PUT-md

*
PUT-Banner

He used this theme to create logos, banners, buttons, avatars.  It’s amazing and overwhelming what he did to support the project of complete strangers whose project he believed in.  Thank you BlogDogIt!

*
You can see his creations on his website:
http://blogdogit.com/article.php?story=20140610113116516

*
And, it’s not like BlogDogIt just whipped it up real quick just for fun!  Thought and meaning are built into this wonderful logo, as BlogDogIt puts it:

To give you a little background on the thought process for your logo; I can tell you my thinking began by being mindful of the Recycle Logo and trying to avoid anything remotely like “Pitch-In”
I wanted it to be simple, bold and recognizable. I started with a few sketches and settled on the three Arrows design. The “P” arrow representing the looking down and seeing the trash. The “U” arrow standing for the physical lifting up of the trash. The “T” arrow symbolizes the dropping of the trash into the proper receptacle. (Feel free to interpret any way you see fit.)

The original reason for putting the base logo into a circle was to keep any future “cutting-out” of the logo (stickers, badges, etc.) as simple as possible. Once the circle was drawn though the color choices came naturally. Blue representing Water, Green representing Land. and White representing Sky (clouds). I was thinking that in the television commercial you could probably have a picture of the Earth “morph” into the PUT Logo rather successfully (but I digress.)

**********************

And that wasn’t all.  He procured for us WWW.PROJECTPUT.ORG, so that if anyone types this in, it gets routed to this blog.  Like Pinnochio dreaming about becoming a real boy, when Eloise and I are sophisticated, organized and developed enough, we’ll take it over and make a real-live webpage for Project PUT.  Again, Thank you BlogDogIt!

Here’s to the crazy ones
The misfits
The rebels
The troublemakers
The round pegs in the square holes
The ones who see things differently
They’re not fond of rules
And they have no respect for the status quo
You can quote them
Disagree with them
Glorify or vilify them
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them
Because they change things
They push the human race forward
While some may see them as the crazy ones
We see genius
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world
Are the ones who do

Pollution is a Crying Shame!

It was true in 1971 and it is truer today!

Caption from clipping scanned online:
Pollution: it’s a crying shame.
But does it have to be? Not if you do something about it.
So the next time you see pollution point it out to someone who can do something about it.
People start pollution.
People can stop it.

Project PUT would say, that if the pollution you see is litter, you should do your part and PICK IT UP and throw it in the recycle or a designated trash receptacle.

REMEMBERING TO CARE ABOUT THE EARTH

http://blogdogit.com/article.php?story=2014042309273269

All these things bring back strong memories.  We think they should all be re-issued to remind the public.  These messages are even MORE important today than they ever were.
