Smiled Upon was founded on the idea of helping communities by providing services and resources where the needs are greatest. Ever since our organization was established, we have endeavored to provide help to strengthen the community where the need is greatest. Our organization is evolving constantly in order to better serve the community.

Our team is made up entirely of volunteers. We advocate for those who need our help. Even a little help goes a long way. A helping hand is always greatly appreciated!

Smiled Upon will allow you to impart your charity and love by supporting our programs. Together we will be improving lives and inspiring positive relationships through your empowerment and our initiatives.

The magnitude is as monumental as is your heart for charity. There are no limits to the smiles and impact the numerous programs will have while we remain true to our core values of loving your neighbor as you love yourself. Our desire is to walk hand in hand building stronger communities and inspiring individuals, families, and organizations to unlock the love and charity in their heart.

Micheal’s Story

Deep down Micheal always knew he wanted to start a charity. He stated on numerous occasions “I want to do for people what I wish someone had done for me.” In the mist of poverty the seed for Smiled Upon was planted and nurtured within him.

For Micheal, volunteering was just the tip of the iceberg. He wanted to do more. He not only wanted to help people who were requesting assistance, he wanted to find a way to reach people in need that were not asking, but are willing to pushing that much harder to overcome. Micheal feels like he has been blessed with an opportunity, and want these families to feel blessed as well.

Creating community outreach programs like Picture Perfect Wig Donation, Thank You For Your Service Veteran's BBQ, Financial Investment Training, Read to Succeed and Starting A Business Training has helped Smiled Upon's Community outreach, grow and bring assistance to the needs of families. Seeing this impact is most important to Micheal and he hopes to continually grow by expanding programs and events in the future. “You really see the direct effect Smiled Upon has on the community. That’s where my heart was when we started the journey.” – Micheal Braclet
