Send a Little Smile Gives Back

Send a Little Smile is a charitable organisation devoted to making things a little better through delivering a little happiness to those in need of a pick me up. Together, we can make a difference for generations to come. Whether you want to contribute with gifts of goods or vouchers, money, time or advice. You can make a change today.

We invite people in Hawke’s Bay to nominate someone, who they think might need a bit of cheering up, for a Bag of Smiles to be delivered
to brighten up their day.

About our Organisation.

We make it easy to help others.

Send a Little Smile has been created to give someone going through a tough time a little smile, by delivering a Bag of Smiles, which will include a selection of treats and vouchers intended as a pick me up for the recipient. Our work is dedicated to helping ease a little pain and bring a little joy, and strive to inspire and improve the lives of those who need assistance.
