At the start of June I cheered the Cheltenham Science Festival volunteers with a Laughter session. It was fantastic, one of my most enthusiastically received sessions. As well as all the subsequent chirpy tweets and sense that I'd made a difference, I delighted in "the level of appreciative love for my VibrantKate laughter stickers".
Why stickers are wonderful emotionally.
Here's what happens when I receive a sticker, which is what I wanted to share:
- I feel rewarded (gold star mentality)
- Like I have been given a tiny pressie.
- The thrill of the souvenir (especially a free one). Maybe it will make it home to my diary!
They are mini adverts, instigate conversations between participants and people they meet and direct people back to this very website!
The act of individually handing out stickers also gives me a chance to interact with everyone who's attended a sesh - they can share their comments, ask questions or chat. Lovely!
If all this has enthused you to obtain one (or another one!) of my exclusive VibrantKate stickers check out the laughter class dates!
What inspiring paper medals have 'stuck with you'? My school issued 'courtesy clowns' stickers in year 1 which I've never forgotten! Look forward to reading your stories.
