Midnight December 24, 2010, Christmas Eve has just begun. I’m passing the night along like any other night when I come across the AMAZING YouTube channel for lifesforsharing, a T-Mobile campaign bringing people together. As I watch the videos there is one thing I notice, EVERYONE IS SMILING! Even before they notice cameras or know what is going on, they have a smile on their face from the environment they are in.
This is where the restless nomadic takes over. Planning ahead in life I’ve come to notice that if all goes well by the end of 2011 I should be debt free and free to roam the country and pile on as much debt as I can before returning back to the real world. Cue the smiling faces of random strangers … why should I or anyone go in debt in search of something as simple as a smile.
January 1, 2012 I will set out to see as many smiles as I can in 365 days. While raising money for _______. The project starts off easy enough as I have a large bank of friends and family spread out across the map. Then is when I will turn to their friends and family. For a simple donation of $1 per person I want to hang out with you for as long as you want me. I can pull up, take a picture of your smile and move on OR you can invite me to the movies, mall, park, dinner, WHATEVER with as many smiling faces as you can muster. When we are done smiling together I will move on to the next smile.
The next smile – The next smile would be someone whom the previous smile has a direction connection with but could not attend the present days smile session Or had so much fun smiling for the day they want to take me to make their friends smile for a day.
I will use this everyone must smile strategy to cover the map, all 48 states, Canada, Mexico and Alaska are welcome if the smiles can get me there! I will go wherever the smile takes me. At the end of the year I will end up back at my home and try to settle back into normal life for a little while longer. All donations raised from the smile campaign will be donated to the ______ .
If you would like to be apart of this or have a suggestion on a foundation for this to support please leave a comment.
