  1. This is my all-time favorite ad. I know that a variation of this showed a car driving by and throwing garbage out of their window at the feet of the Indian. I was actually so impacted by it that I wanted to be one of the workers who got to pick up litter on the side of the highways. The cool thing is that a few years back our church became one of the "Sponsor a Highway" groups and I was able to realize that desire!

    May sound hokey, but it was an awesome experience for me!

    Thanks for the great reminder!
