ASCF’s Smile Squad | ASCF SMILE BAGS and BOXES
ASCF Smile Bags/Boxes are a super fun way to help bring smiles to children fighting cancer. Smile Bags and Boxes of Smiles are gender neutral and are suggested for ages 4 and above.
Smile Squad Steps
STEP 1. BAGS or BOXES
Decide if you will be filling ASCF Smile Bags of Boxes of Smiles
A. If you choose Smile Bags – Please contact ASCF with the exact number of desired Bags. ASCF will mail Smile Bags to you.
B. If you choose Boxes of Smiles – Locate a store near you for clear, shoebox sized containers with lids. Decorate your Boxes with Smiley Face Stickers!
STEP 2. SMILEY LIST
Now that you have your Smile Bags and/or Boxes of Smiles, you need to fill them with all sorts of super fun stuff! Please refer to ASCF’s suggested Smiley List for our recommendations. ASCF recommends each Smile Bag or Boxes of Smiles contain at least $15 worth of assorted FUN. ASCF’s “Donation Request Letter” can be used to contact local businesses. Local businesses are often excited to assist by donating funds or assorted FUN.
STEP 3. KEEP SMILING NOTES
Include ASCF’s Keep Smiling Note as well as a note from yourself/your group if desired.
STEP 4. DECORATE
If you chose to put together Boxes of Smiles, now you get to have even more fun and decorate them! Fun decorating ideas: Include a colorful piece of tissue paper inside. Decorate the clear, shoebox sized container with smiley face stickers (sides and lid). Tie colorful ribbon to the Boxes of Smiles.
STEP 5. SPREADING SMILES
Where will you be spreading smiles? Choose a local hospital and deliver your ASCF Smile Bags/Boxes of Smiles. (Your donation location should be approved by contacting ASCF to assist and/or contacting your preferred hospital directly) Set up a mutually agreed upon day/time for your donation drop off. Typically, hospitals prefer drop off to be in their lobby.
STEP 6. ASCF SMILE SQUAD
We want to see your Smiles! Please be sure to take pictures…lots of pictures! Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org Let us know ALL about you! (where you are from, how you heard about ASCF, participants, where you donated, how many ASCF Smile Bags/Boxes of Smiles you donated) We love to receive notes about how you were able to Spread Smiles!
