Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Sunday Night Kindness Deliveries

--by MakeSomeoneSmile, posted Jun 14, 2013
Last night was date night with my little girl. She wanted to conduct another Kindness "Special Ops" Mission for our evening. That afternoon, we made up some kindness envelopes full of a smile cards, a few dollars and a special note. She decorated the outside of the envelopes with smiley stickers and the words "Open me, I’m a gift for you!" She wanted to go to the mall and secretly place envelopes around to spread some Christmas smiles.

When we dropped our first one and walked off without being seen, the look on my daughter's face was priceless. She was beaming and had a joyful kick in her step. I love how she loves our kindness missions! For the next one, we sat down at a table for a minute, ready to scurry off and leave our envelope behind. The heavy sea of people around us made it challenging. My daughter is getting very good though at helping provide cover when we need it so we can remain anonymous. Practice helps!

Her favorite thing is to go up the escalator and spy on our envelope to see if we can watch it be found. We were only able to witness one last night, but it was fun to watch him open it. We had a lot of fun and we even left one for our waitress after we ate dinner. We are sure she smiled when she opened it, even if we weren't there to watch. Can’t get caught!

During our journey we saw the Salvation Army Christmas Angel trees. She was very excited to pick an angel from the tree. When we went to register it, Rachel gave all of her information. I saw how the woman smiled at her and loved that my little one understands the true spirit of giving. She even told the woman what we were going to buy him from his list. I just smiled and watched her do her thing.

When we got home, she excitedly told her Mom all the things we had done and said we had the best date ever. I couldn’t agree more!
