The History of Share-A-Smile-Ambassadors
I am on the IRPE (Institute for Retirees in Pursuit of Education) faculty at Brooklyn College, teaching a course - A Joyful Journey to Miles of Smiles - The Write Way to a Positively Energized Brain and Body. To demonstrate how the power of a shared smile can relieve stress and positively energize one's brain and body, I asked the IRPE members in my class to serve as Share-A-Smile-Ambassadors and distribute Share-A-Smile face, magnets and bookmarks to anyone, anywhere, anytime and share their experiences in class.
Results to date: joyful experiences increased smile mileage for every class member and recipient who received any Share-A-Smile material, repeated smiling comments, "It wakrs, it really, really works!! Smiles work wonders!!!"
The Share-A-Smile-Ambassadors' Mission is:
To activate school, home and community Share-A-Smile Projects that effectively relieve emotional stress, raise self-esteem, promote positive social interaction, establish healthy relationships and increase one's positive energy power regardless of one's age, gender or economic background.!
