The Big 4-0

On my very first stop, at the local frozen yogurt shop, I purchased a few gift cards to give to any kids we met. When the woman behind the counter heard my plan she gave me two extra gift cards for free!
Next I headed over to the florist and picked up eighteen roses. Then I went to the supermarket to pick up some Starbucks and iTunes gift cards as well as some chocolate, gum, and candy.
I brought the loot home and my husband and I attached Smile cards to each item. Then we grabbed the kids and we were off!
The first stop was a busy supermarket parking lot. My kids and I handed out eighteen roses to women we met coming out of the store. Then we jumped in the van and drove to a nearby business where I got out and handed some iTunes cards to a couple of teens in the parking lot. After that we went to a busy mall where we stood outside the entrance and gave away the rest of our goodies.
Our final act of kindness was to pay the tab for the car behind us in the drive thru.
We had a whole bunch of fun and I thoroughly enjoyed people's reactions to their gifts. I think that I might have to make this an annual tradition!
