Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Smile Deck: Ace of Spades


--by iferlamb, posted May 27, 2010

I recieved my new Smile Deck (a deck of cards with a unique kindness idea on each card) from HelpOthers.org.  I have distributed a few of the cards (asking, of course, that they be returned to me as soon as the mission on that card is completed).  I have not yet heard back any stories from the cards I sent out but I look forward to hearing them and to sharing them here with all of you. :)

I drew one card myself.  It was the Ace of Spades.  The task on the card was to make signs about conserving water and distribute them in public places.  I used 'Word' to make the signs.  I put a pretty picture of a leaf with water droplets on it at the top and then listed 5 easy practical ways YOU can conserve water and then printed off a few copies. 

I posted one in the laundry matt near where I live. I put another on the Community table at the Library yesterday on my way in to during my lunch break.  On my way out I noticed it was gone so before leaving I went out to my car, got another, and put it back in the same place.  I thought that was awesome that someone liked it well enough to take it. :) I hope they implement the ideas.  I'm going back again today and if it's gone I'll put another in its place.  I think I'll add a Smile Card this time.  : )
