When you buy a Smiles gift, you are doing much more than propping families up. Each Smiles gift represents projects in the communities where we work that are helping families become self-sufficient. These projects focus on improving agricultural practices, healthcare and sanitation, and providing clean water, education, child protection and better ways to earn an income for good. You can also receive a gift card to share the impact of your Smiles gift with your loved ones.
