Emily's Smile Boxes

There is a little girl (growing quickly might I add) named Emily. Her baby brother Jude had a stroke prior to birth. He has cerebral palsy and that is how I initally learned of this family. Emily wanted to make a difference in the lives of hospitalized children and their siblings so she started a non profit called Emily's Smile Boxes. She makes boxes full of crayons, coloring books, puzzles, etc. and sends them to kids in the hospital and their siblings. She has won many awards and is just really a fascinating little lady who is wise beyond her years. She is in need of more funding. I really don't promote many charities but I really feel like this is one worth supporting. I have no idea who all of my readers are (although I would love to know so drop a line and introduce yourselves) but I am hoping some of you are the generous kind. If so, please please please consider a donation to Emily's Smile Boxes.
