The Spreading the Love Project began when local artist Christina Hull saw a Facebook post featuring teachers who painted inspirational quotes in middle school bathrooms. Christina put the word out, and artists were quick to respond. Nancy White from Coeur d’Alene Portfolio Real Estate stepped up to sponsor the project and Spirit Lake Elementary school was the first to jump on board. Christina organized a team of professional artists, aspiring artists, and community members who all got to choose their quote and unique design.

The goal of the project is to uplift students with daily visual reminders that they are special and loved. More schools have already reached out to Christina and the team is excited to see how far the project may spread.
