Earlier this month, I shared with you the story of how I stopped smoking using e-cigs as I celebrated one year smoke free. So when I was contacted to take part in the #ShareTheLove campaign by Intellicig, it was a YES before I even got the end of the e-mail.

Intellicig has recently released the Share-A-Starter kit. It contains 2 starter kits, one to share with a friend. This sparked the campaign to #ShareTheLove by doing things to make someones day.

You don’t have to do massive things to make someone smile- a small gesture can often move someone more than you expect. Here are some ideas:

10 ways to #ShareTheLove and make someones day.

  1. Smile at a stranger.
  2. Buy your friend a chocolate bar. Just because.
  3. Bombard a friends phone with emoijis.
  4. Talk to a work colleague you wouldn’t usually speak to.
  5. Slow down to let a car out at a junction when in traffic.
  6. Make a surprise meal for your friends or family.
  7. Send your Mum a bunch of flowers.
  8. Comment on someone’s blog, telling them why you admire them.
  9. Compliment someone.
  10. Enter the competition below and take a friend to the cinema for free.

How I made made someones day.

To help me make one of my friends smile, I was sent a gift card to take a friend to the Cinema.

I took my housemate, Christine. I picked her up from work and whisked her to Bradford – the closest Cineworld near to us. It gave me a bit of nostalgia as it’s the cinema I used to go to when I was at university.

I reserved the tickets online and paid using the card, then we both got some nachos and drink with it when we got there.

We went to see Horns, which is the new film with Daniel Radcliff in it.

If you’ve read anything about it, it sounds like it’s going to be as cheesy as hell. It was actually really good. It did have some dark comedy and cheesiness in it, but it was so well done. I left wondering what genre it actually was. It was dark, serious, dramatic, heart-breaking and funny all at once.

I don’t often enjoy films, or if I do I think ‘that was okay’ but I’m so glad we saw this one over the other two we were thinking about seeing.

  1. I’m working on being kind, and sharing the love with others by giving everyone a genuine compliment. #ShareTheLove

  2. I gave way at junctions as it’s never something I normally do. I stopped hanging up on cold callers too – which is a massive issue to me lol

  3. I try to take care of everyone, especially my sister a stay at home mom, try to get her out the house as much as possible xx

  4. Baked a carrot cake for my friends. The frosting was pretty awful, but it’s the thought that counts, right?!

  5. I’m taking my sister out for halloween, we don’t see a lot of each other so I want to make the most of our time together

  6. It’s not just doing things for people that’s important. Saying thankyou more often and making sure that people know that you appreciate the ordinary,everyday things that they do for you, is important too.

  7. I like to “pay it forward” so once a month I try to do a small act of kindness for a stranger – just to see the expression on their face.

  8. I share blog competitions on my competition blog to help other bloggers & people who like entering blog comps xxx

  9. Enter this competition and take my fiancé to the cinema. He deserves a treat because he has put up with me being pregnant 🙂

  12. I’m always friendly to passers by and the neighbours, always like to be polite to people where i can x

  13. What an awesome campaign! I’ve been making an effort to give genuine compliments to people when I’m out and about and it’s nice to see how happy it can make them

  14. Yesterday I brought my co-worker a Toasted Teacake as a surprise as we were the only ones at work! He was made up!

  15. This is such a sweet and beautiful post – so inspiring and happy!! Love the idea and I think that everyone should do this! xx

  16. I smile and wave out other cars. Yesterday i reserved to let a lorry up the road first even though i had right of way. He’d have been waiting ages for a good gap in traffic to give him cornering space if i didnt.

  17. Well done stopping smoking, I sell E Cigs in my shop I own. 🙂 had so many success stories the best one I had a older gentlemen stopped smoking after 60 years of having the bad habit .

  18. I don’t do much to #ShareTheLove but I keep my friends and family supplied with cakes and other homemade treats!

  19. I always smile at strangers and always start up conversations when stood in queues…..its good to have a little laugh with someone that you know nothing about…you never know it may be the only conversation they will have that day.

  20. I am a great believer that what you give out you get back. I try to be nice to others and do the little things that will make their life better. I wanted to see this movie but was out off by the review maybe I judged if too early Lucy x

  21. I’m trying to buy more of the buy one get one free products in the supermarket and sharing them with my hard up brother and his family.

  22. I always make a point of thanking people if they do something nice. I do feel sad when I (for example, as happened to me today) offer someone a seat on the bus, and they take it without even smiling, acknowledging or saying thanks.I just hope that I set a good example in the way I behave and hope that it rubs off on others.

  23. Aw that’s brilliant– send my mom a bunch of flowers. I’ll have to keep that one in my back pocket 🙂

  39. I share the love by being honest, like today I gave the cashier in WH Smith a £10 but she gave me change from £20, I pointed out her mistake so she could correct it. I didn’t like the thought of her getting in trouble for the till being short especially 🙂

  56. Help a stranger, i.e. old lady getting off a bus or even give someone the money needed for a meal or bus fare. I love it when a stranger does a random act of kindness, it makes me feel the world isn’t such a bad place.

  57. i always use my manners and forever holding doors open, smling at people and thanking them. manners cost nothing and by doing something nice makes you feel good too.

  59. 2 weeks ago I approached an old lady who was wondering around the town centre quite aimlessly. It turned out that she had just had her house burned to the ground and was lucky to escape with her life. She had no money until the banks opened in 2 days and no family nearby. I gave her £20 to get something to eat and left my details to pay it back later (I don’t expect or care if I get it back or not to be honest)

  60. I smile at people regularly 😀 If I’m on a night out I always buy a homeless person a meal (normally something from chippy lane or maccyD’s so not incredibly healthy but deffo warm)

  62. I look after my family…recently I was ill and unable to do anything..it’s amazing how quickly everything fell apart! haha!

  63. I’m taking all my old magazine up to the local hospital, because after waiting there for 7 hours recently I was a bit fed up of things to read from 2005. #Sharethelove

  64. Yesterday at the supermarket the lady in front of me didnt have any bags with her and the supermarket had run out of the disposable ones it sells. I had an extra 2 bags for life in the bottom of my shopping bags that i keep for emergency’s so i let her have them. She had a small baby and a toddler with her so it could have easily been me in that position #sharethelove

  65. I listen to people without interrupting. Sounds small, but I think it’s amazing how few people do, and so it tends to be noticed and appreciated.

  66. I work at a community centre and i always #ShareTheLove by being helpful, happy and nice to everyone that comes in

  79. I smile at people in the street. One day a lady said to me, “Thank you so much for doing that, it made my day”. I also find myself having some great converstaions with people because of it. Just that one simple connection can be so nice for someone, there isn;t enough of it these days 🙂

  82. Offer what you have been lucky to have to others. Words of encouragement. A free gift that could be given to someone or a few of those clothes you have never worn to charity.

  83. #sharethelove by treating everyone I meet how I would want to be treated – a hello or a smile is contagious

  84. I’m trying to be kinder to people in general and extra thankful and polite to retail staff as I know what it’s like lol #ShareTheLove

  85. I always thank shop till workers for serving me and wish them to ‘Have a nice day’, I used to work on the supermarket tills and so many people treated us like we were not even there so I always make sure that the person serving me knows I appreciate their help.

  95. I give people my shopping trolley when they’re panicking with no change at the supermarket #LittleThings #ShareTheLove 🙂

  96. #ShareTheLove I sent my sister flowers a couple of days ago. My 8 month old baby is always cheering people up by smiling at them 🙂

  97. If I’m not in a rush I stop to speak to market researchers on the high street rather than avoiding them (but not those trying to sell something!)

  98. I always talk to strangers anyway, but I like to do the old help a kid at the checkout who hasn’t enough money. #Sharethelove
