Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Minty Smiles

--by pelican, posted Apr 9, 2013

It's great fun showing people that they are important through random acts of kindness.

In addition to Smile cards we found some smiley face butter-mints at our local Dollar Tree. We attach them to the Smile cards with a decorative paper clip.
Our youngest daughter handed a Smile card with mint attached to an elderly lady waiting at the doctor's office. It brought tears to her eyes. The lady stood up and said, "That deserves a hug!" 
Our daughter passed out five more "minty" Smile cards at the doctors office that day.
Our oldest daughter made some whoopie pies and bagged them up with Smile cards attached for her aunt and her aunt's 90 year young neighbor. They both were over-flowing with excitement!
We gave a Smile card to a lady we saw at Wal-Mart and she said that she really needed the Smile card after a rough day at work.
Our family went to Pizza Hut for lunch and the waitress there was absolutely a fantastic server. We gave her a Smile card with a mint and a $10.00 tip attached. She was very grateful!
We as a family have always enjoyed helping others and Smile cards are a good tool we can employ to do more.
