The City of Miami Beach is proud to announce the launching of a new kindness campaign called S.M.I.L.E…pass it on! S.M.I.L.E. is an acronym for Service, Manners, Ideals, Leadership and Excellence.
The S.M.I.L.E. program was developed by the City’s Community Relations Board to build awareness of the importance of civility and its positive effects on the community as well as to encourage kindness, courtesy and consideration in the City of Miami Beach.
Research shows us that emotions are contagious. When we feel good, we extend those positive feelings to the next person and are more apt to communicate in a more respectful and effective way. A smile can alter brain chemistry and when we feel better about the world around us, we pass it along… we pay it forward. Thus, our quality of life improves.
We who live, work or play in Miami Beach have a lot to smile about. This city is one of the most beautiful places in the country and we should feel fortunate to be here. So let’s keep those smiles on our faces, and please pass it on!
