Starting A New Life With Smile Cards January 27, 2012 – Posted by upasaka
I have been trying recently to help a young girl who begs on the street.

Well, a few days ago she shared some good news with me. She has been offered a job in another town! It’s about 150 km away and she will be moving there in a week or so.

Realizing that moving and starting a new job would require several things she couldn’t afford I picked up a $50 Walmart gift card and gave it to her along with ten Smile cards.

I explained that this was actually two gifts. The Walmart card was one gift but the smile cards were her way to pay it forward in thanks for all who had helped her. I explained that the best gift of all would be the joy she would find in using those cards.

Her smile, the heart felt thank you, and the sincere look of gratitude on her face were all the thanks I needed.

I will probably never see her again but the warmth I felt knowing she now has the opportunity to start a new life made it all worthwhile.
