Every week, Sophie-Louise Corrigan allows her 5-year-old daughter Amina to choose a random stranger to put a smile on their face.

"When I'm with my daughter, I'll let her go to whoever she is drawn to and after I'll ask why she picked them and it is always because she likes something about them either their top or their hair. I always let her pick," Corrigan told the Liverpool Echo.

It's a tradition that started with Corrigan's own mother.

"Myself and mum used to always do it, whenever we had some money left from the weekly shop or if we really wanted to do it that week, we deducted something from the shop to make sure we had the money, we would always do it," she said.

"Now, we (Sophie and Amina) do it everywhere, even when we went on holiday to Turkey we did a random act of kindness there. We find flowers, roses and chocolates whether it be in Ormskirk, Liverpool city centre or the Wirral. Wherever we go we do it," Corrigan said.

"The reaction is amazing and is one of the reasons why we carry on. The number of people who speak to us and don't even know what to say, they are speechless. There's been a lot of people who give Amina a hug after and she loves that. There are others who have teared up and said that they've had such a horrible week either with bills or a family death and Amina will always say to me that although the person was crying, it was happy tears. She's understanding how acts of kindness work and how emotions work."
