There are hundreds of languages in the world but a smile speaks them all. Anonymous.

October 5th, 2012 is Word Smile Day.  Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile!

World Smile Day is celebrated on the first Friday in the month of October every year. The idea of World Smile Day was coined and initiated by Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts. Harvey Ball is known to have created the Smiley Face in 1963.[1] The World’s first World Smile Day was held in the year 1999 and has been held annually since.-from Wikipedia.

The Au Pair program is a cultural exchange program. The program helps Au Pairs and Host Families explore other cultures. If they don’t understand sometimes each other- here is the secret power of a smile 🙂 – the universal language of kindness.

Did you know that a smile can predict how long you will live and that a simple smile has a significant impact on your well-being in general?

Scientifically proven that smiling prolong life. A smile strengthens your immune system. A smile can really improve your physical health too. Your body is more relaxed when you smile, which promotes good health.
