Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Random Smilecarding

--by optimist, posted May 6, 2007
In one of the eateries on campus today, as I was quickly eating my lunch before my next class, I had an urge to give someone a smile card.

On complete impulse, I stuck one in one of those little plastic things that have flyers or whatever in them that they put on tables. So, right next to the specials for the month, there is now a great big message to SMILE!

Maybe no one will notice it, but maybe some people will, and get a little grin out of it as they rush around in the busy lives that pervade this place. Maybe someone will even take it and continue the chain and pay it forward.

Whatever the result, if even just one person smiles, it will be a success.

I did not know that you are to let the person know that you are the person who leaves the smile card. So you are to leave a note with the card and personally thank the person for their act of kindeness. Please share and let me know how others have use he smile cards. I am new at this and finally need to know what is the correct way to use the smile cards. Thank you,
