Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Balloon On A Kindness Journey

--by jsmc10, posted Nov 6, 2013
I finally did it! I am so happy! 

I've had this idea for a while but I didn't have the guts to actually go through with it - until today.

I bought 10 helium filled balloons, drew a smiley face and wrote the date they were released on each them. I had set up another e-mail account for the project. I wrote the e-mail address on Smile Card and attached them to the balloons.

Then I took them outside and released them into the air. I hope to get some awesome stories back in return.

I would like to point anyone who is considering releasing balloons to visit balloonsblow. Org and read about the environmental impact they can have. Releasing balloons is now illegal in several states because of it. I understand no one here is intentionally harming anyone or anything and i hope no one is offended by my post as it is not intended that way. Peace.
