'See a Smile' Acts of Kindness Projects Fund.
Warm Hearted Greetings from Tibetan Refugees - Daramsala
I have travelled to many areas of the world, to learn and experience the beauty of our cultural diversity first hand.
I have been overwhelmed by the kindness of people I have met and our communication and cultural exchange.
For this reason I have set up the 'See a Smile' Acts of Kindness Donation Funds to generate financial support for the many beautiful people I meet along the way who will value your gift, whether monitory or to fund a project.
• To offer financial support or the purchase of much needed items for those who really need that extra help. Beautiful people I meet who live in difficult situations.

• To bring the world closer together with the wealth of our diverse cultures and to offer gifts of kindness to people in difficult situations with your support.
To fund arts projects or whatever comes along while I am on the road. Projects that will not only bring joy, but also people closer together!
• Your monetary gifts will mean so much to so many.
I lead a simple life where providing support to people I meet in difficult situations along the way, has always been my dream.
This is where your financial contribution to the 'See a Smile' Acts of Kindness Project Fund, large or small as 10 euro, will mean so much to so many...
I wonder of Life on the Road...
A university graduate in communication, I now use my knowledge and travel experience to raise awareness of the wealth of our diverse cultures, by bringing the world closer together and providing support for those who need it. I will keep you well informed while on this journey across cultures and continents and all the projects created in support of people I meet along the way.
With my own limited funds and time, personal projects and funds I have so far supported:
• In a school as a guest volunteer English teacher, supporting kids to follow their dreams.
I hope with your contribution to this fund, our gift to create a ' See a Smile' Food Event and more will, to help these beautiful children in India not go to school hungry.
Their favourite food as they had told me is mango!
