WHO ARE "MAKE A SMILE"?
- The Recycle Project that 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 and our own Charity shop. With no financial outlay, the Recycle team managed to raise €35,700.00 in 2016 from the community’s unwanted items. This money is converted into necessities for the homes.
- Amigos de Make A Smile Charity Shop. The Charity shop opened its doors in July 2017 and has been a huge success with locals and expats from up and down the Costa Blanca. Run by volunteers, the shop is packed with a huge array of items including kitchenware, new and second hand clothes, books, dvds and much more
- Pennies From Heaven, which 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.
- Fundraisers. The fantastic volunteers from up and down the coast give up their valuable time to run coffee mornings, parties in bars, dancing marathons and stalls at large fairs amongst many other events to get the word out and sell donated items.
