I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

While I don't give spare change, I always make a point to smile and say "hello," or "sorry, but have a good day" to homeless folks. I hear the nicest comments back like, "thanks for the smile," "what a beautiful smile," or "you have a good day, too." I don't always speak to folks who look threatening, but if a street peddler looks me in the eye, I always smile back, even if I don't speak to them. It's a small way that I feel I'm making a human connection. Maybe I'm brightening another person's day, and I love getting a smile back.
