The Joy of Giving Week Smile Deck has 52 simple "giving ideas", 1 on each playing card. Each suit represents giving to a specific group-
- Clubs- for people you know
- Spades- for our world/environment
- Hearts- for strangers
- Diamonds- for yourself, to help become a better person
Simple reshuffle the deck each day, and do whatever "giving act" is randomly selected for you!
You can play this game as a family, too!
Smile Decks were first created by a group of Helpothers.org volunteers, as a humble coffee table experiment- the belief was that each act of kindness, no matter how small, changes the world. JGW volunteers worked with Helpothers.org volunteers to create an Indian version of the Smile Deck so that it could be launched during the Week here, and used to encourage people to do little acts of kindness.
