Our initial goal was $9,600 or 40 restored smiles by the end of June 2020. We were well on her way with over 28 smiles restored via our REAL SMILES campaign, but this was double to 56 restored smiles via a generous HOLIDAY MATCH donation. PROJECT GRATITUDE will continue with all planned fundraising as our impact will surely change the world one grateful heart and smile at a time.
The GLIMPSE KID (smile brand ambassadors) have pledged to support Operation Smile Canada and children around the world affected by cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial deformities. Funds raised will allow Operation Smile Canada and their network of medical volunteers to provide free life-changing surgeries and transform lives around the world.
Together, We Can Change Lives.
Who are these GLIMPSE KIDS?
There is joy and wonder everywhere when you see the world from the eyes of a child. The GLIMPSE KIDS of the GLIMPSE INTO THE LIFE OF A CHILD team change the world for the better, one amazing partnership at a time. They communicate, collaborate and promote ideas that stretch the mind. They set goals and work real hard, persevering to achieve them. They strive to empower student voice and always promote love, acceptance, and unity. They always celebrate diversity and hope to resurrect compassion! In all that they do, they always show the world the greatest version of themselves!
Last school year, they partnered with a singer-songwriter to fight bullying with her lyrics, then turned her song into a book. Their persuasive efforts led them to partnerships that allowed the book to be published and sold in support of restoring smiles via safe access to cleft lip or palate surgeries or less fortunate children in support of OPERATION SMILE CANADA. PROJECT SMILE really did change the world one smile at a time!
Their current project, PROJECT GRATITUDE, will continue to restore smiles. They seek to ignite gratitude in the hearts of others. Gratitude for whoever and wherever you are. There is no need to chase the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow because each and every one of us is already in the pot of gold. Life is our treasure. And together we are part of each other's treasure.
Here are some of things the Glimpse Kids have planned:
A recently proposed partnership with GTA realtors, REAL SMILES, will raise funds to restore smiles. UPDATE: THE REAL SMILES CAMPAIGN RAN FROM OCTOBER 2019 TILL DECEMBER 2019 AND RAISED $6775. THIS AMOUNT WAS "HOLIDAY MATCHED" TO A TOTAL OF $13,550. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT. GLIMPSE KID DONATION PAGES WILL REMAIN ACTIVE.
A planned t-shirt drive will promote the idea that we are all PERFECTLY UNIQUE & MAGNIFICENTLY AWESOME. UPDATE: There is no such thing as perfectly normal. Each and every one of us are perfectly unique. Our t-shirt design (shown in the video above) promotes self-worth, self-acceptance and self-gratitude. Our t-shirt fundraiser will begin on January 6th 2020 and will run until the beginning of March or while supplies last. T-shirts will be sold to the school community and are available for pickup only. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
In today's fast paced world, we can easily lose sight of our happiness, our goals, our dreams, and ourselves. This book, with gorgeous colour stock photos and written beautifully in rhyme, takes readers on a 26 page journey of gratitude. The message within strives to refocus readers on all that is good and truly important in their lives. It promotes the concept that there is no need to chase the elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow because each and every one of us is already in the pot of gold. Life is the treasure and through the blessings of human connections we are all part of each other’s treasure.
