Can I donate items such as clothing or gifts to Smile? No, this is not something we can facilitate. It is much better to get supplies in country to help boost the local economy and so our partners can choose what is the most culturally relevant and useful. It also helps to reduce our environmental footprint. It saves us a lot of time, money and logistical decisions by sending financial gifts overseas and has a much better overall impact for all concerned. Our vision, aim and focus is to transform local communities and empower individuals to help get themselves out of the cycle of poverty by providing sustainable ways to do this.
