Operation Smile

Make a child smile today!

Operation Smile is officially underway!  This week we are sending out cards to 8 different children suffering from some form of life-threatening or debilitating illness.  It is such a small thing to do, but what a great way to let both the child and his/her family know that you are thinking about them and praying for them?!  You don’t have to know someone to care about them and in this day and age, it is important to renew faith in those that are suffering.  Operation Smile is our way of helping restore hope!

Now you can get involved too!  Below you will find a small list of children who could use a card (and a prayer) from you, letting them know that they are thought of and that there is hope for them!  We will try to add to this list periodically so if you know a child or a family who would like to be added to our list, please let us know!  We have already featured a few of these children and will be featuring more in the future, so be sure to subscribe to our blog and like our Facebook page to learn more about the children and to find links to each child’s individual pages.

  • Sophia Solis, 1062 Gardners Gin Rd., Cordova, AL 35550 (Stage 4 Neuroblastoma)
  • Ava Caggino, 44 Shippling Place, PO Box 21821, Dundalk, MD 21222 (ATRT – rare brain tumor)

  • Nathen Trueblood, RMD House, 405 W. 73rd St., #801, NY, NY 10021 (Stage 4 Neuroblastoma)
  • Justin Fairbanks, Unit 42, 1600 SW Archer Rd., Gainesville, FL  32608 (Leukemia)

  • Rachel Gambrill, c/o Karen Pierce, 1909 Windermere Ave, Wilmington, DE 19804 (Anaplastic Ganglioglioma – brain tumor)

Thank you to all of you who will step up and take the time to send a sick child a card or even a small personal note.  It will mean the world to them and their parents.  Don’t forget that Zoe’s challenge is still on so we will also keep sending out cards for each person that donates to Mikey’s Toy Drive!  Please continue helping us spread the word!

    Hello. My name is Joshua and I just received a card yesterday from you all. It made me feel good to know that there is other people thinking of me. Thank you for caring.
