CURRENT AND ONGOING SMILE EFFORTS
Donovan's SMILE Packages
These SMILE packages are sent to children fighting cancer and their siblings. They are customized for each child based on their likes, ages, etc. We know how trying treatment, hospitals stays, etc is hard on the entire family and we hope to make you SMILE with one of our packages. If you would like to request a SMILE package please contact us with your fighters information.
This August we aimed to fundraise 500 backpacks for elementary students in need of school supplies. We had a tremendous outpour of support from the community who helped make our first effort a huge success. We thank everyone who contributed in spreading a SMILE!!!
This December we collected over 800 toys that
were distributed to 5 different hospitals! These hospitals were:
Kaiser Sunset, Los Angeles
CHLA (Childrens Hospital Los Angeles)
Healthbridge Childrens Hospital
Donovan's SMILE Easter Baskets
For Easter we donated Easter Baskets to Kaiser Anaheim Pediatric Oncology Unit. Donovan spent many hours in the clinic, like many children, receiving blood transfusions, chemo etc. The Easter Baskets included home made blankets (donated from Donovan's grandfathers church) as well as a soft cuddly Easter Bunny.
Donovan's SMILE Valentine's Goodies
For Valentines Day we took Valentines Bags to the Kaiser Anaheim Pediatric Oncology Unit. These bags were filled with lots of goodies to bring SMILEs to our Hero's faces.
Ripple Kids Event
Ripple Kids is a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring and empowering kids to take action in their community by publicizing non profit organizations.
Ripple Kids puts on several events, with the latest taking place 4/14/2015. Donovan's brother Bronson along with a few of his friends, set up a booth to promote Donovan's SMILE. They spread awareness about pediatric cancer and raised $70.00 selling Donovan's SMILE bracelets. The proceeds will be used to send more SMILE packages out.
