|About||Little Smiles strives to put a smile on the face of child in hospitals, hospices, and shelters. We are a NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION.|
Who we are: Little Smiles gives kids the chance to be kids during difficult times: granting wishes and hosting fun activities for children in southeast Florida who are battling severe illness, homelessness and tragedy.
The daily routine of a child who has been hospitalized typically consists of ongoing medication regimens, needles, various medical treatments and countless hours spent, sometimes alone, in a hospital room. Children in area shelters and group homes also often feel out of place and under pressure, having left their neighborhood friends and oftentimes most treasured items behind.
This is why Little Smiles has established an online database that allows nurses and other caring professionals to make requests specific to a child’s needs to get them smiling again.
What We Do: Little Smiles provides anything from toys to electronics, special event tickets and VIP outings. In addition to fulfilling individual wishes, there are Snack Food Runs, monthly movie night parties, themed holiday events, and pizza parties complete with Nerf Gun© wars and remote control car races.
Little Smiles also has chapters have chapters in the greater Philadelphia and Charlotte, North Carolina regions.
