Stories of Kindness from Around the World

My Smile Deck Adventure


--by MakeSomeoneSmile, posted May 24, 2012

I have received a few Smile Decks and decided I would use one. 

 
I read through the cards and love all the different ideas. I try to make sure I do at least one random act of kindness each week and thought the Smile Deck could help me with that!
 
There are many ways you can use the cards. Each suite has a different focus and they get progressively more challenging the higher you go. Since I have been committed to practicing kindness I figured I would just shuffle the deck and every few days pull one out and do whatever it says. 
 
So that is what I did! 
 
Yesterday I had the eight of hearts, which asks you to acknowledge an act of kindness by someone else and thank them. I have been the recipient of an act of kindness in the past week so this was a perfect card! 
 
I put together a "smile package" and mailed it off to my kind friend. I am sure it will make them smile!
 
Today I pulled the two of hearts which says to hide spare change where a stranger will find it within the hour. I put some change and Smile cards in two little baggies. I left them this morning in two of the vending machines at work. I am sure they will surprise people and make them smile and that is what it is all about for me! Even when things are tough, anytime I can feel life and spread kindness, it matters! 
 
I’ll keep you posted on how this goes. There are a few hard ones in there so those should be interesting - but rewarding!

Thankyou. You indeed made me smile.

This is so encouraging to use smile card in day to day life and spread kindness. Your idea of doing one kind act once in a week is quite possible for others like me too. This sharing helps.

Hope you continue to contribute to others in tough times and make a better world! Much care and prayers.
