BOSTON, Aug. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Verizon is spreading kindness in Boston, thanks to a partnership with local artist, Ben Jundanian to paint a custom mural at 1250 Massachusetts Ave. It’s all part of Verizon’s national #ACallForKindness campaign, which aims to make the world a kinder place, one act at a time.
“I have been painting cityscapes for the past ten years, taking the streets and neighborhoods and adding my own imaginative twist. I find that each place has its own personality and I try to emphasize the special nature of each place I depict,” said Ben Jundanian. “In this image I wanted to capture the character of Dorchester and the kindness of the community through my illustration. I am so excited to partner with Verizon’s #ACallForKindness and Dorchester Brewing Company to bring some kindness and life to a community I love so much!”

About the campaignThe #ACallForKindness campaign started in October 2020 with the goal of reminding everyone that we’re all in this together, and a little kindness goes a long way. Since then, we’ve shared a study on the state of kindness in America, and teamed up with two brothers walking across the country to raise money for restaurant workers and spread kindness; and recently launched our Fuel The Love campaign, surprising drivers at local gas stations with free tanks of gas.
