Lukas Smith, from Antigo, Wisconsin, has turned a community service project into his full-time hobby. The creative five-year-old has pledged to craft a handmade birthday card for every kid in his small Central Wisconsin town.
Lukas’ mom, Sam Smith, explains, the endeavor began as a means of fulfilling community service hours but soon turned into an outpouring of Lukas' love and desire to give back to his community. "He decided that he was going to make birthday cards for every kid in Antigo and that's what he wanted to do," she shares. As for what his favorite part is, Lukas explains, "Drawing inside the cards and then outside the cards. Putting stickers on is my favorite."
For Megan Novak, whose son Eddie received a card from Lukas, it made his birthday that much more special, spotlighting Lukas' wish "to spread happiness and just share some joy with the other kids." Needless to say, Lukas' dedication to spreading kindness has raised the spirits of his whole community, but it’s also brought immense joy and pride to his mother: "I'm so proud of him," she confesses.
