We appreciate your support, love, donations and for sharing our story.
Your support and contributions will enable us to continue supporting children in need. Stuffies 4 Smiles is run entirely by our family and volunteers so 100% of your donations will go towards maintaining our website, ordering labels, gas for deliveries, postage and getting donations in the hands of children and other organizations that we hold drives for. The Stuffies 4 Smiles sibling team dedicates over 20 hours a week by updating social media, making cards, drawings, reading and responding to emails, organizing donations, making packages and more. PLEASE CONTACT US TO SEE IF WE ARE COLLECTING STUFFIES.
Registered Non-profit organization 'Stuffies 4 Smiles' was started in August 2019 when Juliana ( age 6) met a homeless man and his dog while attending a Toronto Blue Jay game. Juliana decided to draw a picture and add a Stuffie for them and deliver with her mom the following weekend. The next few weekends consisted of making more pictures and attaching them to her stuffed animals. Her mom who worked in the Downtown core and was very familiar with the homeless community started bringing Stuffies and hand drawn notes for the individuals. This started 'Stuffies 4 smiles' in downtown Toronto and Juliana was on a mission.
Why Be a Volunteer?
It’s not for the money, it’s not for fame
and it’s not for any personal gain.
It’s for love of fellow man,
It’s just to lend a helping hand.
It’s just to give the tithe of self.
That’s something you can’t buy with wealth.
It’s not the medals worn with pride.
It’s just for that feeling deep inside.
It’s that reward down in your heart.
It’s the feeling that you’ve been a part
Of helping others far and near,
That makes you a VOLUNTEER.
