Say Hi to 5

"Say Hi to 5" - Greet at least five people each day, on the street or at work or shopping, who you would not normally think to speak to. All you need to do is say "Good morning" or "Good afternoon". Studies have shown that greeting strangers helps those people feel more connected to and valued in their community.
