So far I have sent out over 90 packages, lots as far away as California. I speak with the parents to find out more information about their child and then fill the smile boxes with toys, books, and games that I think would make their child smile. For every box, I draw a card with their favorite character on it and make them a bracelet with their name.
On average, $42 enables me to put together and ship one of my smile boxes to a kid in the US. However, I am beyond thankful for any amount of donations and every penny helps a ton! 100% of the donations that I receive go right towards the making/ shipping of the boxes:)
If anyone would like to nominate a friend or family member to receive a package, please don't hesitate to reach out to one of my social media platforms - I truly would love to send them one!
I am so grateful for all the support! Thank you all so so much!!

-Less than 4% of the federal budget for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancer. 43 kids are diagnosed with cancer every single day in the United States. Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in American children, resulting in the death of approximately 1,800 children each year. I am hoping that my smile boxes are able to add a little light to these kid’s days as they undergo treatment and face their battles.
(On my GoFundMe page, it says on behalf of Rachel Britner. Rachel is my mum and the one who withdraws the donations. 100% of all donations go towards the smile boxes!)
