Salt Lake City, Utah – When a child is sick in the hospital, little things start becoming miracles. This includes the small donations that they receive from others in the community. This is what we are about, giving small miracles to a sick child. SMILE is an acronym for “Small Miracles In Life Everyday.”
Our names are John & Kara Huntinghouse. The idea for this campaign started when our one-day-old baby was admitted to Primary Children’s Hospital and diagnosed with Hirschsprung’s Disease. After spending three weeks in the hospital, we were greatly impacted by the donations we received during our stay. We have always wanted to help other families who are going through similar situations.
As we were talking with our friends Demetrius and Audrey Matuauto, we found out that they were in the process of making and donating blankets to the children’s hospital in our city. We loved this idea and the four of us created the SMILE blankets along with the motto “Buy a SMILE, Give a SMILE!”
By donating SMILE blankets we can directly help critically ill children in the hospitals and remind them to look for the small, everyday miracles that happen in their lives.
In order for us to make this happen, we are trying to raise the initial cost to purchase the blankets. If you would like to help or learn more about the SMILE blanket project, please visit www.indiegogo.com/projects/smile-blankets and help us make this a reality.
