Woman designs signs to help ‘Make America Kind Again’

SACRAMENTO, California — A mother in California has come up with an idea that she hopes will help change the tone after this year’s election.

Amanda Blanc wants to “Make America Kind Again.”

The stay-at-home mom has designed lawn signs and totes that play on the words of Donald Trump’s now infamous slogan.

“It’s for everybody,” she said. “I just want to represent kindness. I don’t care about the politician.”

She started selling the signs on her Etsy page in October, and has gotten orders from all over the country.

“It’s just about being America, coming together and believing in something, and if you have to believe in kindness over politics then so be it,” she said.
