Smilezone Foundation - Canada

Most Innovative Vulnerable Child Support Initiative - North America

Smilezone Foundation is a Canadian charity with the mission to make tough days a little brighter for kids receiving treatment in hospitals and health care facilities. They do this by creating fun and engaging “Smilezones” that harness the uplifting power of a smile.

Smilezones are safe spaces physically, mentally and emotionally where kids of any age, ability and diagnosis can be themselves. While nothing can replace the comfort of their own home, Smilezones make hospitals better places to be.
