One of my most precious memories and favourite milestones with each of my boys has been the first time they smiled at me. I remember each one so vividly – the twinkle of light in their eyes, the wonder of what they’re now able to do – those little smiles that completely overwhelmed me with emotion. My beautiful babies, so full of joy and hope – learning and growing with me.
But those smiles can also break your heart.
What if you were faced with the possibility – and in so many heartbreaking cases, the probability – of seeing your little one’s last
smile? Can you even begin to imagine the heartbreak?
Make-a-Wish UK are so well known for their amazing work with terminally ill children – and this National Smile Day, they want to make an extra special request, so that as many precious, gorgeous children are able to enjoy as many smiles as they can, and squeeze as much love and laughter, cuddles and kisses as they can into their lives with their families and friends – and it’s so easy to help.
Working with Primula Cheese, for each special edition tube that is sold, 20% of the profits will go to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. The tubes look like this:
…and after eating my way through more than any human really should whilst at law school, I can honestly tell you that they are amazing – but not as amazing as what you could do by buying one.
The smiles these little ones radiate through the Make-A-Wish Foundation are the most precious of all. These are smiles that will need to last families a lifetime – I can’t even begin to think what that feels like, to be watching your child so intensely, clutching and clinging to every word, smile or even look. It’s just devastating.
#SpreadaSmile today – and let’s spread as many as we can – because if we can’t save a life, we sure can make some dreams come true.
