ROCKTON (WREX) — Some Stateline families got out of the house, practiced social distancing and spread encouragement in the process.

The movement is called "Chalk Your Walk" and encourages people to write positive messages on their driveways to spread positive messages.

Sarah and her daughter Arabella Combs wanted their driveway message to spread love and hope. Sarah says it was a good way to get outside with her daughter and hopefully brighten day of other people.

"It's just been a great experience seeing everybody walk around and be outside," Combs said. Anything we can do to put a smile on somebody's face is what we're looking to do."

Stateline Kids wants more people to join in and wants people to "Chalk Your Walk 815" through the end of the weekend.
