That's a whole lot of goodness being shared.
Buying me was one way to share
goodness, but there are more! In fact,
there's a movement devoted to doing
so. We call it "Growing Smiles, Sharing
Goodness". It's about making good
choices like staying active, eating smart,
and getting involved, which moves
others to do the same!

Together, we can bring goodness to the
world, one smile at a time.
