PLANTING
SEEDS OF HAPPINESS

Meet Mark Borella,
(good friend, neighbor and entrepreneur)
who hands out smiles
a handful at a time.

His company, Seeds Of Happiness,
makes little smiles out of clay
(hand formed, painted and fired
at his studio in Kirkwood, Missouri).

His "seeds" are sold at hundreds of retail shops
around the world, and passed out
to friends going through hard times,
who need a little smile.

It's a beautiful story.
(Read more at www.seedsofhappiness.com)

His latest project is painting large murals
of smiling faces (of course), 
and donating them to children's hospitals.
(The one above is a 6' x 10' oil painted canvas
soon to be hung at Boston General Children's Hospital.)

The world needs a lot more smiles.
Thank you, Mark.

    Abrazo.
