15 Reasons to Live
We’ve started sharing our 15 Reasons to Live and encourage everyone try it out as well! What keeps you going, what are your passions, and what do you love? We’re creating a collection of reasons to live. If you have a blog, email your links to SmilesInBC@gmail.com
Want an easy way to put a smile on a strangers face? Create some signs with positive messages and hold them up for people passing by to see. We tried this and it’s a great way to connect with people in your community.

Have you seen something online that made you smile and you want to share it with others? We’d love to see it too!
Paying it Forward
There are so many things you can do to pay it forward! One thing we’ve recently done is purchase Starbucks gift cards to leave at the till so when people go to pay they find out it’s already been paid for. Another fun thing to do is pay for the person behind you in the drive thru.
We made some fake parking tickets that just give people positive messages. So, when someone sees it on their windshield then reads it they realize it actually a nice little reminder to smile!
Talk to your local coffee shops about giving you some sleeves to write positive messages on. Then return them to the store so when people purchase a drink, they also get a nice message.
We’ve also heard from some awesome groups that have pretty cool projects you can try out or get some inspiration from:
