Who Are We?
Every child deserves a childhood – this is what we believe in and work towards here at Make A Smile!
The London chapter of an international charity, Make A Smile, we are a group of volunteers who primarily dress up as famous characters (superheroes, princesses, fairies and everything in between!) or just as ourselves to spend time with and bring the magic to kids with illnesses, disabilities, or just circumstance! That, however, is just the tip of the iceberg – with elderly visits, trainings, socials and a lot more, you’ll always have something to get involved with and enjoy!
Whether you like volunteering, dressing up, movies, kids, having a good time or just want to enhance your CV, there are plenty of opportunities available!
What Does Volunteering With Us Involve?
You could volunteer as a:
- Character – Dress up and attend events, play games and interact with the children
- Magic Maker – Attend events, play games and interact with the children out of character (just go in as yourself!) – this can be good if you don’t want to dress up or even if you just want to get a feel of things before you go in as a character!
- Imagineer – Not attending events but helping with the general running of the project, organising events and helping with costumes etc – great for anyone short on time or not wanting to attend events
The best part is that you don’t need to commit to one type of volunteering! It’s not binding at all – you can just choose and alternate being a character, magic maker and imagineer before any event according to your availability and interest!
What Do Volunteers Get Out Of It?
- Volunteering hours
- Reference letters
- Fun and de-stress
- Happy and wholesome moments
All in all, joining Make A Smile London is one thing you will definitely be glad you did! We can not wait for you to get involved, join our family and help make a difference!
