If you have been a Hip2Save reader for any extended period of time, you probably know that I am a big fan of paying it forward and also love to highlight others who pay it forward (check out these posts here, here, here, here and here for some examples). With that being said, I was really excited to learn about HelpOthers.org, the creators of the SmileCard project.
Starting in September of 2003, smile cards began appearing all around the world. SmileCards are markers of a newfangled game of tag, where “you’re it” because someone has done something nice for you. Then it’s your turn to do something nice for someone else and, in the process, pass the card along. This is a game of pay-it-forward: anonymously make someone smile, leave behind a card asking them to keep the ripple going. It’s easy, free, fun, and makes you feel oh so good!
Do you want to snag some SmileCards so you can participate in this game of pay-it-forward? If so, head over here to download your very own SmileCards. If you prefer, you can request pre-printed SmileCards that will be sent to your home for FREE! Just head over here to complete the request form and you will receive 10 cards in the mail within 2-4 weeks. Hip2Save reader, Fran, recently requested the cards and shares a picture of the back of the card below (the image on the front of the card is pictured above at the top of this post).
If you are inspired by the mission of HelpOthers.org, consider paying it forward by donating here to sponsor the SmileCards. For every $1 donated, 20 more SmileCards are able to be shipped and printed (you can even donate stamps!) 😀
