Anonymous Sodas for Co-workers

--by eowynts, posted Aug 6, 2008

 I received my first delivery of smile cards in the mail yesterday and today I used my first one. At work, there's just a refrigerator full of sodas and a cash box for people to pay 40 cents per can (we don't have a vending machine). So I taped 40 cents to the smile card and put the card on top of the cash box, so the next person to put his or her money in will find it.

Your first RAOK and smiley card....that is great....its OK if the idea has been used, what IMPORTANT is the kindnesses given and the ripple effect.

Congrats! Brighteyes ;)
