Donate to KindSpring

When a small group of us launched this site in January of 2004 we had no budget or business plan. What we did have was hearts full of trust in the goodness of humanity :) By the end of the first year we had shipped over 51,000 smile cards and covered all costs out of our own pockets.By the next year demand had increased manyfold -- and people all over the world wanted to know how they could contribute. So we set up this page.

From here you can help sponsor smile cards. Every (US) dollar donated makes it possible for us to print and ship 20 more smile cards into the world. You can also learn about our volunteer opportunities.

Three Ways to Donate

Donate online, either with your credit card or PayPal. (Note: the online payment will go to 'CharityFocus', which is a parent organization of KindSpring.)
