Woman designs signs asking people to ‘Make America Kind Again’

A California woman is trying to spread a message of kindness amid the vitriol and divisiveness of the presidential election season.

Amanda Blanc, a Sacramento stay-at-home mom, last month designed lawn signs that ask people to “Make America Kind Again.” The signs, which riff off of president-elect Donald Trump’s campaign slogan, are for sale in Blanc’s Etsy shop.

Blanc, who did not tell the television station who she was voting for, said her signs and other products are about promoting the “little things” that restore kindness to the United States.

"It's just about America coming together and believing in something,” she said
