Our 2015 Cause – Putting Smiles on Beautiful Faces
Today, there are approximately 31.8% of children living below the poverty level in Tampa Bay alone, this is about 7% above Florida State levels. In 2014 the Washington Post headlined an article stating “Child poverty in the U.S is among the worst in the developed world … In the richest nation in the world, one in three kids live in poverty.” In 2015 the National Center for Children in Poverty (NCCP) said “children under 18 years represent 23 percent of the population, but they comprise of 33 percent of all people in poverty”
These numbers are staggering and though we may not be able to impact every life, we can certainly bring joy to a few. We were founded on the idea that everyone deserves the opportunity to smile, to laugh and to be happy. For 2015, we aim to raise funds in order to purchase bicycles as Christmas Gifts for children of underprivileged families, so that they too can experience one of the many joys of childhood.
