Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Acts of Kindness Story

--by Tina, posted Jun 19, 2006
Thank you for your gift of smile cards. I used them as a very effective tool to teach my children the importance of outreach to those less fortunate. I held a family meeting. As a prelude to my lesson, I read to them Matthew 25:37-40. I volunteer at a hospital, assisting cancer patients. We decorated roses with curled ribbon and attached a smile card to each rose. We snuck into the hospital waiting room early in the morning before treatments began, and left fragrant smiles for the cancer patients.

My mother suffered from cancer for many years before she died and would of thought it was a lovely gesture.
