Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Special Delivery to the Post Office

--by MakeSomeoneSmile, posted Feb 25, 2013

Though I am a little late in posting this, I would not want to miss sharing it. For my final day of World Kindness Week I wanted to do something in honor of all of the wonderful volunteers here at HelpOthers who ship Smile Cards. Their hard work and dedication help spread smiles and enable others to do the same. How could I best do that?

I had a few things to send out so I needed to go to the post office. They know me there as the "Smile Card guy" because of some of the things I send out. They know about Smile Cards as they have asked me in the past. I decided to bring them a dozen donuts. The clerk did not notice the box as I set it down while she stamped my packages being sent. As she rang me up, I slid the box of donuts along with a stack of Smile Cards. I told her they were for all of the great people at the post office who always help out. She looked stunned but smiled and took them to the back. I heard her say to another employee "Hey look he brought us donuts!"

I was happy to make them smile. I chose the post office for my kind act because I thought that was a nice way to honor the shipping volunteers. Thank you for all you do to help spread smiles throughout the world!
