The "Freeing Throwers" facilitate opportunities for people to receive encouraging witnessing while undertaking the often challenging (and always cheerleading-worthy) activity of letting go. The sign above is currently installed on 50 Kansas City public buses, while the entire fleet is broadcasting audio recordings of Mo Dickens recount tossing his junk food habit into a dumpster behind a church in Prairie Village, Kansas. Over a year later, Dickens has lost 27 pounds, and his "back feels better and [his] feet feel better too." In an audio spot triggered by GPS as buses approach 39th Street and Troost Avenue, Dickens suggests Kansas Citians offload extra items to the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Shop at that intersection.
