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 is a volunteer driven, non-profit 501(c)3 children’s charity. Our mission is to help kids in local hospitals, hospices, shelters and other like facilities. With the guidance of professionals such as doctors, nurses, child life specialists and social workers, we strive to help kids escape their unfortunate circumstances, if only for a short period of time.
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. This is why Little Smiles has established an online database that allows nurses to make requests specific to a child’s needs to keep them smiling. Through this direct interaction, we are able to respond locally by being hands-on and immediate. Our ultimate goal is to brighten a child’s day and allow them to just be a kid again.
Ultimately, Smiles are what we strive for. In conjunction with our Corporate Sponsors, we host a variety of fundraising events and activities within our community that fuels our mission to help children in South Florida, the Greater Philadelphia region, & North Carolina.
