2018 Smiles in 2018

This year we’re going to make 2,018 children smile.  To accomplish this goal, we need to raise $60,000.  Our donations directly benefit 13 children’s hospitals, and with your help, we can expand our reach to others across the country.  Your support will:

  • Cover the cost of establishing an Art Therapy Program ($500 benefits 20 children).  
  • Provide individual kits which include a canvas, paint brushes and paints.
  • Allow a child to create their own masterpiece, which we print on a head or neck scarf.
  • Offer a therapeutic and creative outlet for children.
  • Spread happiness for children and families on their medical journeys.
