Summer Smiles 🙂

Dear VBS Director/Children’s Minister,

Do you know just how important your work is for the Kingdom? Touching the lives of children and filling them with seeds of faith is work that often seems insignificant. Yet the truth is, it’s HUGE! I speak from personal experience. It was during a summer VBS that a very shy seven-year-old bravely raised her hand to invite Jesus into her heart. I still remember the songs, the fun crafts we made, and the kind and gentle teacher, Mrs. McDonald, who prayed with me those many years ago. VBS can change a life for eternity (but I’m sure you already know that).

As you prepare for your 2019 summer VBS event, you may be looking for a missions project to supplement the curriculum. If so, look no further! Let me introduce you to SUMMER SMILES, a fundraising program from your friends at Love Without Reason, a ministry that provides free surgeries and follow-up support to children in Third World countries with cleft lip and palate birth defects. This dynamic program will grab your kids’ hearts and teach them the benefits of giving to others in a clear and age-appropriate presentation.

Our SUMMER SMILES kit puts the ‘fun’ back in fundraising and makes it easy for you to implement. Love Without Reason will provide everything you need: daily 30-second videos, take-home materials, and ideas to get your kids excited about giving. All this at no cost to you!

As you plan those fun activities, no doubt you are thinking about putting some smiles on the children who will attend your VBS. I know of no better way to get a smile than to give a smile. Join Love Without Reason in our goal to provide 1000 surgeries in 2019 and prayerfully consider including SUMMER SMILES in your VBS event. To contact us, simply go to and look for the SUMMER SMILE logo. Act now, so you can receive your materials in time.
