One doesn't usually wear a business suit when painting a fence, a wall or a door post, but because he had several formalities lined up immediately afterwards, President Shimon Peres figured that if he wielded the brush carefully, even though he was using bright yellow paint, he might be able to avoid soiling his suit.

The occasion was a good deed day dreamed by his bureau chief Efrat Duvdevani, who recruited Beit Hanassi staff, including the president, to help in renovating a Jerusalem kindergarten.
