Give First, Wear Second.
Our premise is relatively simple – for every item of clothing
we sell, we will donate a school uniform or t-shirt to a child in need. ONE for ONE.
Every purchase of a Smile garment will automatically provide
a child in need with a brand new t-shirt.
This notion we feel offers a sustainable way of providing for children in parts of the World where simple things such as clean t-shirts or school uniforms are not plentiful, or in some cases, available at all.
2010 saw us go on clothing drops throughout Indonesia and given away 300 shirts to orphanages and schools in low socio-economic regions throughout Bali and Lombok.
In 2011 & 2012, we have successfully given away 5,000 school uniforms & t-shirts to children in need. Our clothing drops during this time spanned across Indonesia, Cambodia, Kenya and Sri Lanka.
Our model of giving is growing, and people are starting to believe in sustainable giving.
Our goal is achievable, and further goals will be set. Throughout this year, we look to help even more children throughout the World, with areas of focus being Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Caribbean Islands, Indonesia, and remote Australia. We would love it if you could all be a part of this in any way you can.
Smile is a socially conscious business model. We believe that the future of good commerce, needs to have a human element, needs to care for people, and needs to be about more than simply trading. We believe that it feels good to give at the same time as to receive, and we believe that you will feel the same. Please help us create smiles.
