There are many things I love about Downtown Boise, One of them is Jack's Urban Meeting Place, or as most of us refer to it... JUMP. It's such a cool and contemporary building and the concept behind it, is my favorite because it's very community oriented. The last few times I've driven by JUMP I've noticed these giant laughing emoji's and I've wondered what they represent or why they we're put there. Along with the larger than life emoji's I've also noticed a billboard that reads "Giggling For Good".  I got so curious that I did some investigative work and in true JUMP fashion, the emoji's and billboard are another opportunity to enrich our community. Read all about the mission that JUMP is on in January compliments of their website. 
"JUMP is on a quest to kick off 2021 with grins, giggles, and guffaws
as laughter fuels positive energy and connections, improves creativity, and reduces
stress.  And as everyone is looking for more meaning right now, giggling can also put
a smile on the face of children by donating essential clothing and/or hygiene
products to the Boise School District."
