Day 53: Sent A Smile

It has been proven that laughing and smiling lowers blood pressure, relieves stress and boosts your immune system. I have always been a person who enjoys joking around to get people to laugh and smile, mostly because I don't like the alternative (I guess I am a health guru by default as well). So far we have told a joke, recorded people telling jokes, and helped someone smile. I intend to find as many things on this journey that are out there that double as both a way to make people smile, as well as a way to make people's lives better at the same time.

Yesterday, one of our Facebook friends suggested that I send an eSmile. As we continue to collect our pop tabs to donate for the Ronald McDonald House, there is a way that we can compound the amount sent the this great charity. HP has made a pledge to donate $1 to the Ronald McDonald House for every eSmile that is sent through their website. So for today's random act, my daughter "volunteered" to send an eSmile to assist the Ronald McDonald House in helping the families of children hospitalized with very serious diseases. It is 100% free to anyone who wants to participate, so please visit the above site to send a smile, well wishes, or a sketch of someone smiling. Oh, and here is a picture of my daughter's smile. She means no offense by sticking out her tongue, it is simply a reflex of her happiness.

  7. I like your blog very much - such a good idea! Ok, we all can do "good things" in our lives, but it is so great to be aware of them, to try to substitue not very positive behaviour with this little kindnesses - it must take a lot of work! And your blog brings across this awareness very well. Also what a great imagination - to think of something new every day! (Is it a too long comment??)
