Simply Smiles, Inc.

Lolly y Nelly is proud to partner with the organization, Simply Smiles. A portion of each sale goes to Simply Smiles to help with their efforts to provide bright futures for children, families, and communities. 

"Simply Smiles is a not-for-profit organization that provides bright futures for impoverished children, their families, and their communities. What makes Simply Smiles different may not be easy or concise to explain, but it has proven to be impactful, sustainable, scalable, and successful.

If your sister, your best friend, someone you loved needed help – how would you help them? Would you drop a used coat off at their doorstep and walk away? Would you just loan them a small amount of money? Would you keep them at a distance?

Of course not. You would sit down, look them in the eyes, and listen. You would learn and understand their situation, their pain. Empathy would well up inside of you. Their struggle would become yours. You would commit yourself to helping them in every way necessary. You would fulfill their immediate needs and ease their suffering. Then side by side you would work together to put into place the long-term solution - to solve the problem. All of this in a manner that would build your loved one’s dignity. At the beginning, throughout, and in the end – you would make them smile.

This is the Simply Smiles approach to the poverty in our world. Our supporters, our donors, and our volunteers allow us to see the individual in need and support them in this same way – but on a scale of thousands of individuals and growing.

From the desolate prairies of an Indian reservation in South Dakota to the remote mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, this personal and holistic approach means we are providing food, clothing, shelter, medical care, education, infrastructure, jobs, pride, dignity, hope, and solutions.

We need your help. The work is hard. The emotions searing and powerful. The injustices many. But we can all make a child smile. So let’s start there. And hand in hand we will walk that child down the path to the bright future that every person deserves."

Abundant Life Foundation

In November of 2012, the Abundant Life Foundation showed some women in St. Helene, Roatan, Honduras, the concept of crocheting handbags made mostly from recycled materials. To date, over 65 individual women have sold over $25,000 worth of bags, learning a sustainable business model. Ten percent of all proceeds are collected in a community fund for the community to use as they collectively decide.

Lolly y Nelly is excited to partner with this foundation and sell their bags here on our site. We won’t be making any money on these bags. Your support will go directly to them when you purchase a bag! 

Lolly recently visited the island of St Helene and met many of the ladies making the bags. ‘It was such a special day. The joy that radiates from this community and their very simple life was eye-opening and motivating. I desire to learn how to be content in all situations’. 

We hope you will find a bag you love and make a purchase that will help support these wonderful families!
