How A 5 Year Old Inspired So Many & A Thanks To Her Amazing Mom

How A 5 Year Old Inspired So Many & A Thanks To Her Amazing Mom

As we’re in the middle of the giving season – a time of year where we yearn to help others and appreciate the good in people, I want to highlight this story once more. This amazing woman has done so much for the Infinite Smile Project when no one knew who we were because she believed in what we were doing and I feel everyone should know her story and how incredibly inspiring she is. Please let her and her daughter be an inspiration to you and your family and remember anyone, any age, can be a philanthropist and change […]

Why Are We Giving Away Our Own Money For Kindness Characters?

Our Kids Kindness Contest is extended until the end of this month! Why? We have received the most amazing things from kids of all ages. I knew we would get some really amazing characters submitted and were excited to see the ideas were developed by all ages. What I don’t think I fully expected was the depth in which kids can articulate kindness. They are simple ideas that seem so logical once you read them but as adults we for some reason just can’t seem to relay it in such an organic manner. It’s quite fascinating to see actually. So […]

The Meaning of Our New Childrens Book, Dylan & Delany, Is Deeper Than You May Think

Link to Kickstarter Click Here Many of you know how the Infinite Smile Project started and why we developed our book series and programs to teach kids kindness, but many of you don’t. Some of you knew us before having the twins, after having them, during the wait for “Angel’s” heart surgery, once she was better and some of you – still don’t know us but came across ISP and fell in love with what it does and will continue to do in the world. Our launch was behind about 50 days but it was well worth it. We met […]

A New Must Read That Will Make You Ask, “What Can I Do to Change the World?”

  “It’s not other people who are responsible for making our world a better place; it’s us.” –Erik Rees When planning for a beach vacation or preparing for a long flight there are many great reads out there to choose from. I tend to lean towards witty, comical books or choose biographies to sort of escape reality on these trips. However, the book I just finished reading last week, “Never Ever Give Up, the Inspiring Story of Jessie and Her JoyJars”, by Erik Rees, was one that sort of fell in my lap by chance. I had the pleasure of […]

The #1 Thing the News Stations Should Be Talking About But Aren’t

My new favorite pop culture word – “Philanthro-kids”. By definition they are kids or teens (“pilanthro-teens”) that have a love of humanity and partake in ”private initiatives, for public good, focusing on quality of life “. Why aren’t we talking about this? Where is the coverage on these kids and why this is an emerging trend? Clearly we know enough about the rise in drug, alcohol, violence and promiscuity in kids and teens these days but where are the news reporters and writers when it comes to this topic? We need something to drive our youth’s focus towards the positive […]
