One New Yorker is sharing a message of positivity for children staying at Ronald McDonald House in the city during social distancing, and asking others to do the same.

Lauren Goldberg wants New Yorkers to share their messages of positivity written on their windows with dry-erase markers by taking pictures for social media using #HopeForTheHouse.

This was one of the ways Goldberg kept her brother Dutch’s spirits up when he was staying at the house during treatment for his Neuroblastoma, she said.

Although Dutch lost his battle with cancer, the method of brightening spirits in these uncertain times still works for Goldberg, and she encourages others to share the messages during times when people may feel alone while social distancing.
