Ripples of Smile Cards (Orders!)


--by sonrisa, posted Nov 4, 2006

I organised a large volunteering event at the non-profit organization I work for and because it was such an organisation-wide affair, so many people helped to make the actual day come together.  I was very grateful for the way that nearly 25 staff members contributed on the day as they provided an amazing source of support in making things happen the way I had planned.

I decided to thank each of them with a big swiss chocolate bar with a smile card tied around it with ribbon and a thank you card to tell them how much I appreciated their support.  As I handed them out the following day, many people were a little surprised by this gesture, as it was largely unexpected.  But, what really made my day was when I was shipping Smile cards a few days later and noticed that one of the people who received a card had already ordered more! 

This smile movement really is infectious and I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to spread ripples wherever I can :)
