The Beginning of Good Eggs
It all started at People's Liberty Globe Gallery

Former Cincinnati Mayor, Mark Mallory is a Good Egg
Good Eggs look like an every-day gumball machines, but dispense eggs containing messages instructing patrons to commit a simple good deed. A good deed can go a long way to improve morale throughout a community, and so Good Eggs is designed so that it can be easily replicable in any community setting.
Good Eggs was the first recipient of People’s Liberty’s Globe grant, and debuted in collaboration with the opening of the People’s Liberty office in Over-the-Rhine in 2015. We had a bunch of help in 2015 to get it moving - The Art Academy of Cincinnati with space and helping hens, We Have Become Vikings for design and print, friends and family, we cannot thank you enough!
Now Good Eggs is flying the coop! Throughout Summer/Fall 2017, Good Eggs machines will be found throughout Cincinnati’s neighborhoods.
By prompting the performance of good deeds, Good Eggs hopes to spread good will throughout the city.
