As part of our mission to offer unexpected acts of kindness, The Barnett-Searing National Cancer Foundation provides care packages also called “Smile Kits” to female cancer patients. Smile Kits contain soothing items such as a fuzzy blanket, a journal, a stress-relieving adult coloring book, colored pencils, fuzzy socks, custom lip balm, and maybe even something a little silly. For a personal touch, packages also include cards of encouragement created by volunteers, students, and other survivors.
Nominate a Smile Kit Recipient
Your generosity has allowed BSNCF to deliver more than 4,500 Smile Kits to female patients in every state in the U.S. BSNCF is a 501(c)3, so Smile Kits are only possible through tax deductible donations by individuals like you. Thank you!
If you would like to nominate a special lady to receive a Smile Kit, use the form below and consider paying it forward: make a donation, start a fundraiser, walk or run in honor of your loved one in the BSNCF Run/Walk.
Just $35 helps cover the cost of one kit, and $100 funds Smile Kit contents for three women. Every donation – large or small – makes a difference. Donations help cover the costs of care package contents and shipping for female cancer patients to pay it forward.
Nominations with a donation or BSNCF Run/Walk Registration are guaranteed to receive a kit as well as priority and extra goodies. All requests are verified for authenticity and are filled as funding allows. Please do not send multiple requests.
“Just received the most thoughtful and sweetest “Smile Kit.” Thank you so much! I’m already using the pink heating pad. What a wonderful surprise to receive after just getting home from the hospital and day 3 of radiation!” – Natasha, Clifton, Virginia
