A Social Experiment!

So, while serving here in New York, we have noticed that many people look sad or frustrated or lonely as they walk around this beautiful city... It seems that New York is the loneliest populous city there is.

We decided to try to fix that!

Today, we got together with 6 other of our missionary friends and went out to invite others to write an encouraging note that they might give to a friend, so that we could give them to someone who looked like they were having a rough day! Tons of people in Union Square helped us out, and now we have some awesome encouraging notes that we can give to anyone in need! The things that these people wrote were truly inspiring, and we could see that those who thought about it could feel the spirit of service (: It was awesome!


  1. What a great idea. It must have been fun for people to do this and feel like they were making a difference in someone else's life. You Elder's have amazing ideas.

  2. There are tons of lonely looking humans out here in San Francisco, too! Maybe we can make the smile reach coast to coast? :) I'm going to bring this up to our ward mission president. Thanks, Elders!
