MAKE A SMILE
MAKE A SMILE works with the community to raise funds to provide some of the most basic supplies required by children in the EMAUS group as well as a home for mentally handicapped youngsters with works to promote their self-sufficiency. These supplies include food, toiletries, school books, gas bottles and much more.

The Olive Tree Project
Make-A-Smile are offering 1000 olive trees for public sponsorship at an annual price of 50 euros. The trees can be purchased as a present, in memory of a loved one or just for your own little piece of Spain. Each tree carries its own numbered certificate of sponsorship.

Pennies from Heaven
Make-A-Smile will collect all your odd pennies and turn them into food and other essentials. Pennies from Heaven takes in small coins (the dusty ones in little pots that are sitting on everyone's dressers), which are sorted and banked once a month.

The Relleu Self-Sufficiency Project
One of the Emaus homes is a centre for mentally challenged youngsters in Relleu. Using existing land and equipment Make A Smile has created a farm. This provides occupational therapy for the 24 mentally challenged youngsters in residence there and is run by volunteers. The farm now produces 750 eggs a week from 220 chickens that have been sponsored by the public.

Community Fundraisers
Fundraisers provide important funds for our projects. From skydiving, coffee mornings, bar quizzes, ice bucket challenges and anything else you can think of. Just give Make-A-Smile a ring and they'll advertise your event on their Facebook page. Look out for their collection tins in your local bar or establishment (or ask them for one).

Warrior Food Runs
A balanced diet is very important for young minds to function so through the fundraising activities and donations from the local community, Make-A-Smile do weekly shopping trips to Makro. Provisions are listed by the carers so that they can provide optimal nutritional needs for the children. These are then delivered to the homes by the team.

House Clearances & Donations
The Recycle Project takes in unwanted clothes, brick-a-brack and furniture, restores/washes and puts the surplus up for sale at auctions, pop-up shops and fairs. With no financial outlay, the Recycle team managed to raise ?22,000.00 in 2015 from the community's unwanted items. This money is converted into food and necessities for the homes.
