For your community

* Keep smiles bright! With a parent, call Head Start or a homeless shelter and offer to donate toothbrushes and toothpaste.

* Resolve to say. “That’s not funny,” whenever someone around you tells a joke that is mean or prejudiced.
* Make a smiling lantern by hollowing out and carving a watermelon with a parent’s help. Display it on a porch or windowsill. (And invite a neighbor to share the yummy part of the melon you carved out.)

* Pray for joy to be contagious in your community.
