America, you’ve been going through a lot, eh? We know you don’t like it when we weigh in on your business, but your northern neighbours have something to say.
You may or may not, have seen the hashtag #TellAmericaItsGreat trending, but the story behind the viral campaign is truly heartwarming. Canadians – known for eating bacon, watching hockey, saying sorry, and being nice – just want to give our friends a boost.
Our Country as a whole, can see that between Donald Trump’s locker room banter, to the creepy clown invasion, the USA may be a tad bit stressed out.
You're big, you're full of life, you're diverse. There, now. Wipe that tear. You got this. #tellamericanitsgreat

An advertising firm called The Garden came up with the idea because they felt like the United States needed some cheering up amidst the whole Presidential election
debacle race. The campaign has been trending on Twitter since it was launched on Thursday with an accompanying video gaining over 614,796 views onYouTube, as of this afternoon.
“Seems America could use some cheering up right about now. As their closest friends and neighbours, we thought we should take a minute to help remind them that no matter how bad things might seem at the moment, there are lots of reasons why we think they’re still pretty great.”
The website reads.
Hope that helped, America.
Watch the campaign video above and let us know what you think of the movement.
