A couple of days ago, the Boulder County Public Health department shared on social media two photos and a story about an incredible chandelier created using empty Covid vaccine bottles. Rightly so, the post is lighting up the internet and going viral.
A public health nurse in Boulder, Colorado, Laura Weiss said she created the inspiring fixture because, “I was witness to the inexhaustible efforts of healthcare workers and volunteers… [and] was inspired to repurpose hundreds of Moderna vaccine vials and create this “Light of Appreciation.”
Weiss hopes it honors and shows gratitude for “all those who have helped keep people alive, either by getting the vaccine to protect themselves and others, caring for those suffering from COVID, or by assisting in the vaccination effort.”
As she continues, “We are all connected in this effort. After so much loss, uncertainty, and anxiety, may the light bring hope for a brighter future.”
