Welcome from our Founder
Thank you for following Bring Smiles to Seniors blog. Bring Smiles to Seniors is a 501 (c)(3) organization that works with schools and civic organization to make and decorate cards for seniors. Cards are distributed to seniors in nursing homes, independent and assisted living facilities and to seniors at home through our home mailing program. In addition, we provide cards to elderly nutrition programs (such as County and Meals on Wheels programs) to be delivered with seniors’ meals.
I started this program in honor of my grandmother, who was in a nursing home and had dementia. I recognized a need to teach children and others the importance of remembering those that paved the way for us to ensure sure that they knew they were cared about and loved. We began the program in March of 2016 and delivered 18,810 cards in 2017.
Through the generous donations of card artists around the country who support this program, Bring Smiles to Seniors has a goal for 2018 of delivering over 20,000 cards. Having delivered over 11,000 cards so far this year, we are well on our way to meeting that goal.
As a part of the program, I write a daily inspirational column Monday through Friday that will now be posted to this blog. Sharing life stories and philosophies, my goal is to enhance and enrich the lives of our readers and program participants.
We are so happy to have you join us on this new chapter of Bring Smiles Smiles journey.
