This week has been pretty amazing after I started the 5-Day Kleenex® Challenge my outlook on the week started changing! I knew when I started the challenge that I wanted to connect with more people, get out of my comfort zone and bring a smile to others faces. Spreading a little caring really brightens everyone’s day!
I have the opportunity every day either on my walk to school or the mailbox to connect with others, I just needed to get out of my comfort zone and actually talk to them! Equipped with Kleenex® Share Packs, I no longer have an excuse.
Finding unique and spontaneous ways to Share Kleenex® Care love was the fun part!
It all started nice and simple at the hockey rink! I spend a lot of time in the rink during the winter so this was an obvious place for me to Share Kleenex Care!
As fans we’re so into the game and disconnected with the people around us. I chose to sit next to someone new and handed them a Kleenex® Share Pack after their daughter scored her first goal!
At school on my third day of sharing there was a mom who was trying to calm down her daughter. Apparently they had family in town visiting for the holidays and the kids were thrown off our their normal routines which meant lack of sleep and tired tears at school drop off. Passing along a Kleenex® Share Pack not only helped her dry the tears but brought a smile to a flustered mom.
My favourite memory from the week was at the gas station when a lady locked her keys in the car while she was filling up. I could hear her start to cry as she through her hands in the air so I peeked my head around the gas pump to see if there was something I could do. Turns out her door automatically locked and her keys, wallet and cell phone were sitting on the drivers seat. Not a good day. I grabbed the Kleenex® Share Pack and got Frank to hop out and help her. Another bystander had offered to help as well, and between her and Frank they were able to pry the door open and use a clothes hanger to pop the lock. A good day for everyone!
To finish off the week I had a coffee date with my little man. The couple next to us were reminiscing over old times and laughed so hard they started crying. We all have those friends we can sit, laugh and cry with and those moments are truly irreplaceable. Luckily I had my last Kleenex® Share Pack to help dry the happy tears.
From this experience I have learned that a simple action creates an amazing reaction. Going out of my way to open the door for someone or hand them a Kleenex® Share Pack has a whole new meaning. If we can take a moment to pause and think of others before we rush through our daily activities the world would be a much happier place. Slow things down, be thankful for today and spread some caring!
