Project Smiles happens on Reyes(Kings Day), January 6. Kings Day is a holiday that carries as much importance as Christmas does here in America. Instead of presenting the gifts on Christmas day, they present the gifts on the day that the Three Kings present their prophetic gifts to Jesus. Project Smiles is to give a toy to children in impoverished communities. Reaching boys and girls, with various activities that share the love of God in fun exciting ways. Near the end of the event, we distribute clothes and gifts to the children. Our goal is to present at least one toy to every girl and boy.
