Some of our most recent events
We had so much fun and raised more money to help cancer patients at our most recent country-themed fundraiser. We have raised more than $30,000 through two fundraiser events. Donated funds benefitted cancer research at Winship and brought more SMILES to patients through goody bags, handmade blankets and cards. We are so humbled by our generous donors, THANK YOU!
We love getting together to stuff bags for the patients at Winship Cancer Institute- Emory University, St. Joe's location. This is where our moms receive treatment too! Each goody bag includes a handmade card, a smiley stress ball, an activity book, pretzels, tissues... and of course, a LOT of chocolate! We love making tons of bags, because we know how much they mean to the patients. We have delivered hundreds of bags, and we have delivered hundreds of SMILES. :)
We have developed a partnership with our schools and hold projects including the SMILES for cancer kindergarten service project! The kindergarten families donate items for our goody bags and we work with the students to make handmade handkerchiefs with a little handprint angel included in each bag. The patients are so touched to receive these special bags each year because they can feel the love that is poured into each bag! Additionally, we have brought SMILES for cancer to our high schools as well. We have partnered with clubs to add service projects directly benefitting SMILES. We hold events to collect donated items, pack bags, and handmake cards and blankets to be delivered to patients.
