Takin a cue from Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s election slogan ‘Make America great again’, The Garden, a Toronto based organisation, started a campaign called ‘Tell America it’s great’.
The Garden describes itself and its attempt to bring some cheer to its neighbours in the following manner:
At The Garden, we pride ourselves on being a group of good people; the kind of people you can count on to be there for a friend or neighbour in need, regardless of any differences that may exist. That’s why, as we witnessed the challenges our friends to the south have been facing, we felt compelled to do something.The Garden’s Post
The video shows Canadians thanking America for giving the world the Internet, jazz music and attempting to put humans on Mars, among other things.
As we set out, we weren’t exactly sure how people would react. After all, America is far from perfect, and one of Canada’s favourite pastimes is pointing out those imperfections. But while we definitely had some who declined to share, we were pleasantly surprised by the large number of people who wanted to.The Garden’s Post
