MISSION OF SMILE DELIVERY FOUNDATION
Smile Delivery Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3)
organization that benefits children with life-threatening illnesses.
We deliver "smiles" to children with life-threatening
illnesses during their extended hospital stay, no more chemo
party, birthday, and/or other special occasions. For us, a "smile"
means: kind words of encouragement, love, hugs, gifts, cards,
and most importantly, prayers.
We work strictly by referrals from Our Lady of
the Lake Children's Hospital and other healthcare facilities
which make it possible for us to personalize the gifts that
we deliver to a child. Our referral form contains a gift option
list where each child, or parent of the child, helps choose
their gifts. This ensures that each child not only receives
many special gifts, but items that are of interest to them.
In addition to each child's gift choices; they receive a t-shirt,
reusable tote bag, oral hygiene pack, ClubHouse magazine from
"Focus on the Family", and the option to receive a
BIBLE with their name engraved.
We realize that the parents of a sick child have
needs, too, so we supply all of our SDF parents with a care
package filled with shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer, soap,
body wash, a bath puff, toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss,
snacks, a Bible Promise Book or other encouraging book, an activity
book, pen, “Thriving Family” magazine, roll of quarters, and
many other items as they become available. Many of our parents
would rather not leave the hospital to replenish their supply
of personal hygiene items, so this helps them to stay at their
We truly understand what an act of love and kindness
can do to lift a child's spirit, and our hope is to make a profound
difference in their lives as well as the lives of their family.
