An anonymous South African has broken through the billboard noise in Joburg with simple messages of positivity.


Johannesburg, South Africa (18 March 2018) – If you were looking for a sign… then Joburg has got them all! Call your mom. Just be kind. Forgive them and move on. These are just some of the simple words making a massive impact on the streets of Johannesburg.

An anonymous South African has broken through the billboard noise with simple messages of positivity. The street pole adverts have started popping up all over Joburg, bringing a little happiness to those that see them.

Sara Elizabeth Loots was so inspired by the messages that she took to Facebook to share them with the world and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

“Who ever put these up… YOU ARE EXACTLY WHAT MAKES THIS COUNTRY GREAT. This is why I love this city so damn much. If you were looking for a sign, this is it! Seen on Barry Hertzog.”

And her Facebook friends could not agree more.

Tanya Van Rees Mostert responded: “Love Love Love that idea! We always tend to ask for signs… brilliant”

Ilze Blackmore-Reed added: “Iain and I watched “Invictus” for the first time this morning… it’s 9 years old! Seeing the story and reliving the forgiveness and love our former Madiba advocated was so beautifully intense and inspirational – a pure walk of life for us all.”

Mariska Oberholster commented: “Also saw them today! So grateful for people that try and make the world a better place, little by little.”
