“Smiling 50” Campaign

USA

Because we have some blog followers that are not connected to our Facebook page (facebook.com/bringsmilestoseniors), I wanted to provide you an update on our recent “Smiling 50” Campaign.

A couple months ago we set out to deliver cards to at least one senior community in all 50 states. We were already delivering to 14 states, so we had 36 states to go.  On June 19th, we successfully completed this campaign when we delivered the last box of cards to Wyoming. In the process we delivered to 38 senior communities in 36 states for a total of 2,828 cards.

Along with this campaign we kicked off our postage fundraiser. Postage is the number one expense in our program and in the first half of 2018 we spent $4,600 on postage alone. Donations and occasional fundraisers are our only source of financial support. We set a goal to raise $2,000 to help us cover postage through the second half of the year and wound up raising a little over $2,500.

We are working on our next campaign as we continue our march across America. We continue to show the power of people coming together for a common purpose. Because of everyone involved in the Bring Smiles to Seniors program, seniors continue to smile – 44,710 times since we began the program in March 2016.

Thank you to all who make this possible and for going on this amazing journey with us.

Bring Smiles Volunteers – Ron, Linda, Renee, Diane, Liane and Becky

  1. Congratulations on accomplishing your goal, and so quickly, too, but we all know how determined and dedicated you are to our senior community. Blessings on you, and hoping you surpass all your goals going forward. And, yes, thank you for posting here, as I’m one that doesn’t participate in Facebook.
