Smiles for the Kids
Smiles for the Kids is a grassroots initiative operating in Modiin, Israel, with a mission to bring happiness and comfort to the families of soldiers and those impacted by the ongoing war. In the wake of the tragic events of October 7 and the call-up of 350,000 soldiers, it became apparent that this was not a short-term conflict, and our soldiers would be away for extended periods, some for months on end. With war still looming in the North, there is an ever growingneed for more support and smiles than ever before.
Smiles for the Kids serves a non-profit event company, creating chessed opportunities for individuals, families and organizations both in Israel and abroad. From law firms in Israel, family trips, colleges like Yeshiva University, Athletes for Israel, tour operators globally, to numerous high schools and middle schools across the US, we have worked with every type of organization to create unique and meaningful experiences some sponsored from abroad and others where the group was an active participant.
Local businesses, including caterers, party planners, candy stores, and home cooks, are also facing financial hardship. With businesses closed and parties canceled, many have lost their livelihoods for the time being. By partnering with these local businesses to send treats and joy to the affected families, we can support both sides of the equation, helping more people in the process.
We kindly ask for your support by contributing whatever you can and sharing our cause with your friends and network. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those affected by this ongoing crisis.
