It seems like inherent behavior to check coin returns in phone booths, soda, newspaper, and other vending machines.
Why not leave non-monetary rewards as reinforcement of these efforts?
The way it works:
1) This project will be done anonymously, I will only plant the "seeds" . I will not hang around for results. (Site locations will be tweeted from 25rkelley one hour after the fact.) http://www.facebook.com/pages/I-Check-Coin-Returns-Making-WTF-Moments/148179708526650...
2) The aim of this project is to plant 2,000 one inch buttons around the country, over a period of one year.
Locations, cities, and events to be "bombed" will include, but not be limited to : Santa Cruz and Phoenix in August San Francisco in October New Orleans Jazz Fest Grand Central Station and points unknown
3) New texts will be added to the buttons as this project continues. Follow it on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/group.php... 4) Upon starting the project I will record bombed cities, have photos of button locations, preview new button text, and, if you find a button, you can check in on Facebook and leave a comment
Funds will provide 2,000 1" pins, bright acid free paper, and a circle cutting tool
