Anyway, the brand, renowned for its T-shirts emblazoned with smiley faces and uplifting messages (it also donates 10 percent of profits to help kids), is making a push into Canada. As part of that move, it joined with ad agency The Garden and digital production firm Thinkingbox to create an “Optimism Machine.” Click here to read the full article and watch the “Optimism Machine” at work.
