Madison Chamber encourages area residents to participate in Ivey’s “Ribbons of Hope” campaign

MONTGOMERYThe Madison Chamber of Commerce is encouraging residents in the Madison area to tie ribbons around a tree or pole in their front yard in conjucntion with Gov. Kay Ivey’s “Ribbons of Hope” campaign.

Ivey on Tuesday announced her campaign at a ceremony at the Alabama State Capitol. During the duration of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, Ivey is encouraging people throughout the state to use the ribbons as a symbol to remind everyone to pray for medical personnel, first responders, and for one another.

The ribbons can be tied around a tree, mailbox or fixture in a front yard to symbolize faith, hope, love and prayer. Governor Ivey says she hopes these simple gestures will create unity among us and become a beacon of encouragement for everyone who sees them.

“As an effort to remind the people of Alabama we are all in this together, I ask that each household tie a ribbon in their front yard to remember our medical personnel, first responders and for the health and protection of our family and friends. Let’s use whatever ribbon we already have from a past celebration and may we see a beautiful array of color line our neighborhood streets,” Governor Ivey said. “These ribbons will serve as a reminder to the people of our state that we are lifting each other in prayer, and that just like after the great flood in Genesis, we are mindful of the hope and promise of God during this pandemic.”
