Smiles Around the World


Love One BY One Ministries posted the following message in their April newsletter along with these two photos. “The little boy in the photo came to our medical clinic in Uganda adoring and playing with his beloved car from the YEAR before. Loving One by One has received numerous cars for past mission trips, and we are super excited and blessed to be hand-carrying 2,000 of these precious cars this summer.” Thank you to all our Smilemakers for making a difference in these children’s lives. Your work is making a big difference in many children’s lives.



Thank you for all the toys you sent to SALUD PARTNERS for our mission trip to Cuchiverachi, Mexico. The kids (and even the adults) were thrilled. We want you to know how much you blessed these children who have so little. God is good, Richard Stam



Suitcases full of wooden cars were recently delivered to the children at Joy Christian School in Rwanda. This is the only “non-self-made” toy they will ever own. It is fun to see the smiles as they learned someone cares enough about them to donate a simple wooden car. Thank you to all Smilemakers.


TFGK’s received this thank you from Colin Gesink: “Over 600 cars from Denver, Colorado were given to children of King Solomon’s Junior School outside of Kampala, Uganda.  Eight Calvin College students traveled to Uganda during the month of January to work with Starfish Ministries and a local Ugandan Pastor.  Thank you for allowing us to share smiles with children across the globe.”



These beautiful children live in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where two brothers and two girls are getting their cars.
