I Smile First

The I Smile First parade entry


It’s an initiative, created by Meps, that encourages people to be the first to smile in any encounter. Smiling is easy, and it’s free — what a great way to increase happiness and civility in our communities!

Everyone can participate. All you have to do is:

  • Smile at people, regardless of whether they are smiling at you
  • Help people understand the benefits of smiling
  • Pass out free smile cards and buttons to spread the message

Become a Smile Ambassador today! You’ll find more information on the I Smile First website, ismilefirst.org.

I Smile First was the recipient of a Burnt Oranges Community Action Grant at AfterBurn: Restoration.
