JWT Gives Hope to Homeless Children in Lebanon
The Good Note is an initiative that offers children on the streets of Lebanon an easier way to get the basic items they need, such as food, water, household supplies, and personal hygiene items. Good Note vouchers can be purchased from Bou Khalil supermarkets and given to beggars instead of money. They can be used at any of Bou Khalil’s 11 branches in Lebanon.
The good note was designed to look exactly like a currency note. The starting point was the Lebanese 1000 Lira (equivalent to $0.66) which is not only the smallest note in the Lebanese currency but also a note associated with the street and beggar lingo.
The 1000 in the good note is highlighted to reinforce the association in value to the 1000 LBP. The color scheme is similar in its greens and blues but the good note has a hint of purple/pink that adds a colorful, innocent edge to the note.
The iconography and patterns were carefully designed to reflect all the good things beggars can buy with this note - fruits, vegetables, bread, pharmacy products etc.
The voucher that is in both English and Arabic features an inspiring message that reassures the giver about the initiative’s mission: “In this note we trust to spread good change”.
