Several years ago, I entered a Clowns Canada contest. Contest participants were asked to send in a slogan or a pledge.
I submitted the “Checkers Promise”, and won!
I wrote the “Checkers Promise” for our children’s workshops. Entertainers at Checkers Entertainment Services wanted a way to encourage all participants (children and adults) to have respect for one another. Sometimes the best inspiration is when you least expect it, I woke up out of a sleep one night and wrote this promise:
CHECKERS AWARD WINNING PROMISE:
Put Your Hand Over Your Heart,
And Repeat The Following:
I promise to be good,
To have fun,
To have respect for other people,
Look at everyone and and Smile!
and to make the world a happier place to live.
Now Look At Everyone And Smile!!!!!
