“It’s so contagious to spread love and appreciation. With the 1000 crochet flowers, 1000 hand written card project, I have so many friends stepped up and say, “Jo-ann, I have 200 colleagues, I have 500 colleagues, I go ask them to write”.

My friends know 做Jo-ann 的朋友很忙的, anytime also can be asked to do work. So I told those volunteers to start their mini project instead. That’s how #Happy Bag# started.

Happy Bag is easy, attached the hand written card with a small token, it can be an apple, #may lee# or just some snacks. Then give to front liners near you. 就是这么简单。

Today, my partner in crime 姓林, we distributed to 12 bus drivers. We went to the bus stop downstairs our office, board 12 buses and gave each a Happy Bag. It’s a small token that cost less than one coffee but the smile is priceless. All 12 were surprised, I think seldom they are appreciated and “rewarded” but for sure all smiled and a few guys actually wanted to open the “present” immediately like a kid.

At another “crime” scene I have May and her friend giving hand written card and apple. They also make the driver “high lor”. Everyone love to be appreciated and recognised and it is so easily to show gratitude and love.

Wait no more, just do it. Start from your neighbourhood, your cleaners, your bus drivers, security officers at your office building. Bring a smile, make their day. It will make your day too.”
