I wanted to use one of my Smile Cards today, so I went to the bank and withdrew $20. I went out on my lunch break, and walked around looking out for someone to give the money and the Smile Card to. I spotted a couple of people who I thought about giving it to but then I remembered that the Smile Card says to do it anonymously. So I decided to find a way to give away the $20 without the person knowing where it came from. I got in my car and drove to the mall and walked around praying for God to show me what to do.

I left if by the first pay phone and prayed that someone who really needed ... Read Full Story >>
I am so glad I found this site and I can't wait to use my smile cards. I went to the mall on my lunch hour from work, and wrapped a smile card with a five dollar bill and left it on a pole in the middle of the mall.

I finally got my smile cards in the mail and I couldn't wait to use them. Here's what I did with my first one.
We have inter-office mail at work, so I put a smile card in an envelope with five swiss chocolates, and sent it annonomously to a fellow worker. I pray it brightened his day and made him smile and my prayer is that he will pay-it-forward and make someone else's day.
