Today’s Act of Kindness: Big Smile

Today’s Act of Kindness: Big Smile

I was stopped at a light this morning and looked over to see a woman in the next car boppin’ and movin’ and groovin’ to some tune. She looked over and gave me a big smile. I immediately smiled back and felt good. Bam! Just like that some stranger had sent me a package of feel-good energy. So simple, and so powerful.

And thus we have today’s Random Act of Kindness (a quick mission you can do to make a big impact on someone’s day):

Give a stranger a huge smile
(no half smiles! …and not so big they think you’re creepy! ;)

After you’ve completed your mission:

1. Please share your experience in the comments below. Who did you smile at? How did they react? How’d it make you feel? Let us know and help inspire more of us to share the love.

2. Then, click the “I did this” button below to claim 20 Butterfly Credits you can use to make even more of a difference. (Honor system. Only one click per person.)

Thank you for making a difference!
