Smiles for Miles!!!
The rain (and a pandemic) couldn’t stop the smiles at our MAKE ‘m SMILE-fari!!! We LOVED seeing all the smiles on the faces of VIP kids and their families!
We celebrated Nathaniel’s birthday by helping VIP families know they are not alone in this pandemic. This year, we transported our Make ‘m Smile event to the great outdoor adventures of “Wild Florida” where families drove through the safari in the comfort and safety of their cars.
We had over 1,500 cars registered and put huge smiles on the faces of over 2,000 VIP kids!
A BIG heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped pull off our first MAKE ‘m SMILE-fari in record time! Whether you volunteered, donated goods and/or services, sponsored a car(s) or prayed, we are grateful! Thank you for being a part of the team!!!
