Little Smiles is a volunteer driven, non-profit 501(c)3 children’s charity. Its mission is to help kids in local hospitals, hospices, shelters and other like facilities. With the guidance of local professionals such as doctors, nurses, child life specialists and social workers, Little Smiles strive to help kids escape their unfortunate circumstances, even 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 the facility professionals to make requests specific to a child’s needs. Through this direct interaction, the charity is able to respond locally by being hands-on and immediate. Little Smiles' ultimate goal is to brighten a child’s day and allow them to just be a kid again.
Little Smiles provides anything from toys to electronics, special event tickets and VIP outings. In addition to fulfilling individual wishes, Little Smiles also organizes Snack Food Runs, monthly movie night parties, themed holiday events, and pizza parties complete with Nerf Gun© wars and remote control car races.
In conjunction with our many Corporate Sponsors, Little Smiles hosts a variety of signature annual events and "Friendraisers" within local communities that fuel the mission to help children across South Florida, the Greater Philadelphia region, & North Carolina.
