Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Coloring Book And Crayons

--by bhappy, posted Jun 28, 2007
This past weekend I was going through my stuff.  While doing so, I stumbled upon 3 large boxes of  crayons, coloring books and markers.  I am a kid at heart, I must confess.  They were mine and I had not used them yet. 

I decided to take the coloring book and crayons to the laundry mat and waited for a child to give to. 

There was a little girl around 4 yrs, sitting while her mother put the clothes in the washer.  I went over to her mother and said, "I would like her little girl to have these, along with this smile card."  She gladly accepted.

I walked away and was doing my own thing, when the little girl came over and thanked me with a huge smile on her face! 

I still need to give the other stuff away and can't wait.  I love doing this!
