Creating Smiles 1 Child at a Time

Our Mission

A child is never fully dressed without a smile.

Jake Taraska

A smile takes a moment. But the memory of it lasts forever.


Making one person smile can change the world. Maybe not the whole world, but their world.

As a young child, Jake realized the power of giving back through his struggles with cancer.
