I share my smile with you

Share The Smile Journey is a global movement aimed at spreading smiles and joy worldwide. Join us in tracking the journey of each smile and discover how far positivity can travel. Be part of this adventure and let’s light up the world together.

The Idea

Have you ever wondered how far a smile can go?

We asked ourselves that very question. Can it be carried across cities, countries, even continents? Can it bridge cultures, break through language barriers, and warm hearts? With this vision in mind, we set out to discover just that. By creating 100 special Smilecards, each with its own unique number, we invite the world to be a part of a movement that showcases how far joy and community can travel when simply shared.

How does it work?

About me

I’m Paul Ilberg. Ever since my school days, I’ve known that I wanted to help people. That deep-rooted desire led me to embark on a journey into entrepreneurship during my studies, hand in hand with my brother. Together, we brought many innovative projects to life, all with the purpose of making a difference. Yet, despite our achievements, a growing feeling within told me I hadn’t yet discovered my true calling.

I’ve always been the type of person who wants to learn and understand everything around me. It’s this natural curiosity that’s drawn me towards topics like health, the way we live our everyday lives, our mental well-being, and the foods we eat. These aren’t just subjects I enjoy; they represent my deeper desire to make a difference. My true goal is to use this knowledge and passion to guide and support others, helping them find their path to a life that’s not just healthier, but also filled with happiness and fulfillment.

Recently, our world has undergone significant changes. I’ve observed society splintering into ever-smaller groups, with the tone of interaction growing colder. Conflicts, economic challenges, and global unrest have made many of us forget the power of a simple smile. This increasing estrangement pulled me into a downward spiral, making me feel we were losing sight of what truly matters.

From this darkness emerged the vision for ShareTheSmileJourney. It’s more than just a project. It’s a mission to reintroduce smiles into people’s lives, reminding everyone of our interconnectedness and the healing power of a mere smile. By sending 100 unique Smilecards on a global journey from the small city Freising in Germany, we aim to showcase the distances joy and connection can cover when shared, and tell stories of how a smile can positively transform lives.

I believe that if we work together, we can make a kinder, healthier world. A world where everyone smiles and shares it with others.
