Graduate student’s campaign to reunite lost gloves with their mates
This past October, graduate student Jennifer Gooch started a campaign to
reunite lost gloves with their mates. Since launching her onecoldhand web site,
the Carnegie Mellon University School of Art student has reunited four lost
gloves with their owners.
The site has since grown from a collection of 21 gloves to a collection of 75.
More than a dozen businesses and offices in Pittsburgh have drop boxes for the
lost gloves. The web site got 55,000 hits in the ten days after stories about
the project ran all over the world.
Soon after Gooch started the program, a second site, onecoldhand-nyc.com, was
launched. Gooch is working on similar sites for cities around the globe.
Gooch is planning an art show featuring the photos of her gloves at the end of
April, as well as a book to showcase them.
If you’re like most of us and at some point, find yourself with a glove that’s
missing it’s mate, keep an eye out for a onecoldhand site in your area. To see
