Catharine Knighttravels a lot for work and when she’s in airports, she tries to bring smiles to masked faces. The frequent flyer and her son create cards with uplifting messages and she passes them out to help lift the spirits of her fellow travelers.
Since everyone’s wearing a mask, you can’t see if they’re smiling or sad, Knight explains, adding that she watches people’s eyes to see if they need a little pick-me-up. “People need to know that there’s still kindness in this world,” she says.
This random act of kindness project started three years ago with Knight and her sonParkerwriting positive notes for people they’ve never met and will probably never see again. They’ve given out more than 25-thousand so far and she just hopes their cards shine some light when people need it most.
