Spread a Smile brings joy and laughter to seriously ill and hospitalised children and their families during long hospital stays.  Every year we spread smiles to thousands of children and teenagers and their families through our hospital visits, outings & events & art initiatives.  We know that our impact is far greater than a smile as we strive to make a real and positive difference to young lives at the most challenging of times.
