National Smile Week

by The Red Recruiter on July 19, 2009

Smiling Banana - 1happysnapperI always like getting involved with fun projects… perhaps because I like to have fun.  I like to laugh, smile… you know, enjoy life.  Some people roll their eyes at this idea, and to you… I’m sorry.  But, there is a way that we can all be a bit happier.

A Tweet (a message on Twitter) came through saying that it was National Smile Week from July 19th – July 24th.  This blog post talks about it.  I don’t know if it’s true or not – honestly, I don’t care.  It seems like fun, so I’ll do it.

This is somewhat of a Twitter challenge of sorts, but it would go like this…

Do one thing to make someone smile this week and send out a Tweet saying what you did.  Tomorrow, I will buy a complete stranger a cup of coffee at Starbucks.  Big deal, no.  Will it make them smile, hopefully.  Will it make me smile, yes.

So, to share it with everyone, you just want to make sure that you include the hashtag #smileweek in your Tweet.  This would be an example:

“Just bought a guy named Bob a cup of coffee at Starbucks. He smiled. #smileweek”

“Just picked up the tab for a young couple at Chile’s.  They smiled. #smileweek”

“Brought lunch to a man that lives outside of our building. #smileweek”

“Bought my wife flowers and delivered them to her office. #smileweek”

Just think of all the possibilities!

Have fun!  Spread the smiles and let us know how it’s going!

If you’d like to monitor the hashtag line, Twubs is very handy for this.  Go to the following URL:

If you have yet to set up an account on Twitter, take advantage of the Twitter Essentials training on my site.  You’ll be telling us how you made someone smile in no time!

What are you going to do for Smile Week?  Are you in?

    Tomorrow is National Lollipop Day (you can see how that would fit with National Smile Week). So tomorrow I am going to give a lollipop to everyone on my staff. I bet that several of them will smile. And just in case you didn’t know it, July is National Ice Cream month. Think how many smiles you can create with that!

    I gave a homeless man my son’s tennis shoes – size 13 shoes are not exactly easy for the homeless to find. He smiled and cried, which then made me cry. Hope he is still smiling…

    I showed a guy my “Tigger” tattoo, and he smiled, well kind of chuckled actually. A smile goes along way and is so easy to pass on.
    “It’s a good thing” to quote a wise woman.
    If the tennis shoes that Natalie gave away were red, that would have made a great RSP photo. That might be something you could do with the red shoes from the party.
