I love nothing more than to see people smile but sadly a lot of people don't feel they have anything to smile about. I was once one of those people who never felt happy enough to smile, no matter how hard I tried. I felt that way for a long time until I was diagnosed with a mental health illness which included depression. With medication, professional help, talking and time my smile slowly but surely reappeared. 

There are sadly many people who for many reasons have lost their smile and are suffering in silence. I have been sending smiles for miles to these people in and around my local area. A special home delivery of a nice cream cake, a home made muffin, a new book to read, a beautiful bunch of flowers are just some of the things I've managed to receive a smile for. 

My social media is jam packed with messages asking for a visit to people's friends, family, neighbours who have lost their smile. It's amazing how much the smallest thing is having a positive impact on people but I can't keep up with the demand or have enough time or money to help more people. 

If I could raise enough money to register as a proper charity/organisation and deliver smiles for miles and miles and miles I think thousands of people could be helped out of the sad, lonely place I once lived in.
