Many have vision and hearing deficits and those with dementia can become apprehensive. These stickers will make a difference. Letting them know the smiles that they grew so accustomed to seeing on us each day when we entered their room are still are on our faces. Thank you for making a difference😊” ~Jan R., RI

This sticker idea is a simple and great way to lift spirits during this time!”  ~Tirzah C., NY

  • “I think this is the best initiative for lightening up individuals in the hospital and out! I am always smiling and I really dislike that no one can see my smile. I deliver meals on wheels [locally] and I will be teaching yoga classes with a mask soon and I want to bring more than food to the community on my route and my students. Now these frightened residents and yoga students can receive nutrition for the physical health and a smile (under my mask… showing on the outside) … this is absolutely genius in my book. THANK YOU!” ~Jane V., RI
