Compassion lies at the heart of everything we do. We appreciate that not all of us are blessed with the same fortunes in life. We give our time and money freely with no hidden motives, we just simply want to bring a smile on the faces of the vulnerable and needy no matter who they are or where they are.

#XmasSmiles2017

Following on from our successful international campaign #EidSmiles2017 (information below), our focus is now on our first ever #XmasSmiles campaign leading up to Christmas 2017 here in the United Kingdom.

#XmasSmiles2017 is primarily focused on bringing a smile to the faces of the homeless across the United Kingdom.  With the support of our volunteer network across the country, our goal is to deliver special “XmasSmiles Gift Packs” which contain a blanket, woolly hat, scarf, gloves, socks and a box of chocolates to those sleeping rough this Christmas.

The #XmasSmiles campaign continues to deliver on the promise to bring communities together and support the forgotten people of our society.

If you would like to get involved or want more information, please contact us!

#EidSmiles2017

“Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat”

In May 2016 it’s these words by Mother Teresa that inspired us to raise small funds amongst our family and friends to put a smile on the faces of 500 vulnerable and needy women and children in Bangladesh.

The global campaign for #EidSmiles2017 was launched on 25th April 2017 at the Houses of Parliament in London. The aim remained the same, a simple desire to make a small difference to the lives of the vulnerable and needy in society. The key difference from the previous year was the desire to reach out to more people across different parts of the world.

To date, #EidSmiles2017 has delivered programmes in 18 locations in Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, Indonesia, Nigeria and Greece providing gifts for 1188 individuals. We are currently working on programmes in Mauritius and the United Kingdom.
