Stories of Kindness from Around the World

75 Balloons

--by newdayvow, posted Jul 18, 2014
Some friends and I blew up 75 balloons, wrote nice sayings directly on them or on notes attached to them by string, and passed them out on campus.

Mine said "Happy Unbirthday, any day can be your special day, even today." I gave it to a girl working at the info center, where I assume she is constantly barraged by people asking her for things - directions, keys, etc.

She was very excited to receive something, for once.
