Where we've Helped



Reach Out

Global Smilez is an organized 501c(3) charity that brings joy and smiles to children throughout the world. Founded in 2014, the organization has brought a genuine smile to the faces of children born to poverty with the odds of success stacked against them. The smiles brought to these children create a sense of worth and happiness in them they may have never experienced. These simple gifts take them away from their poverty and provide them a moment to consider there is good beyond where they are. We are dedicated to bring them happiness and to introduce a state wellbeing through our unique programs only made possible by our devoted team and generous supporters.
