Everybody Deserves a Smile

Everybody Deserves A Smile (EDAS), is a homemade grass-roots project that was started 16 years ago to bring a smile to homeless people at Christmas. Although EDAS has focused on helping the homeless, its intent is to help everyone feel significant in some way, simply by being kind.

Join us by creating of collecting items (scarves, socks or mitts) and donate them at one of your local drop off center The Lewis Center Courtenay, The Courtenay Library, Nanaimo (NDSS)

Please view the video series (with your local Island GA) for more information and education about the charity and homelessness.
