Smile Across America

We’re putting a Smile Across America
for International Day of Happiness!

For the 3rd year in a row, we’re putting a #SmileAcrossAmerica with positive messages on billboards and bus shelters from coast to coast in honor of International Day of Happiness. All the messages this year focus on kindness and acceptance.

International Day of Happiness is March 20th, but the inspiring signs will begin popping up in cities across the nation as early as March 13 and remain up for 4 weeks. A sneak peak is available now on 10 billboards in Las Vegas, where the signs will remain up the longest.

We’re currently at 131 locations. Here’s where you can expect to find our happy messages at this point:

  • Albuquerque
  • Atlanta – 5 billboards
  • Boston
  • Chicago – billboards and 56 bus shelters
  • Cleveland

Our positive message billboards have inspired people, made them smile, helped them
celebrate birthdays and deal with cancer, memorialized loved ones and even saved a life at least once. They’re kind of magical like that.

    A smile may be more influential than we know.
    Dr Jerome Motto who studied Golden Gate Bridge Suicides noted the following:
    I went to this guy’s apartment with the medical examiner.The guy was in his 30s
    lived alone in a pretty bare apartment.He’d written a note and left it on his dresser.
    It said “I’m going to walk to the bridge.If one person smiles at me on the way,I will not jump”
    Thank you for encouraging acts of kindness and awareness that
    our eye contact and random smiles can make a difference.
