This altruistic program is full of the element of surprise by not revealing where members will show up next in the communities served by FSB. The goal is to create a ripple effect of random acts of kindness. This contagious nature is kept active by experiences shouted out on social media channels, thereby encouraging others to pay it forward.

  • Gilford Youth Center – treated families to sweets at the Disney-themed Valentine event
  • Funspot Triathlon to benefit the NH Humane Society, Laconia – a team of SmileSquad members participated to help our four-legged, furry friends
