Color a Smile
Color A Smile is a non-profit organization that spreads smiles with cheerful drawings. Since 1986 we have been collecting crayon drawings from school children. Every month we mail thousands of these original crayon 'masterpieces' throughout the United States. Schools, scouting troops, youth groups and individuals supply us with drawings. The majority of our drawings are mailed to senior citizens but we are happy to send 'smiles' to anyone who would like them.
Color A Smile was started by Jerry Harris in Morristown, New Jersey. He first thought of the idea while in the kitchen of a friend's house. Jerry noticed how cheerful their refrigerator door looked with all the colorful artwork from their children. Jerry's children were not yet of the 'coloring age'. With help from his family and other volunteers, Color A Smile was created. Over the years Color A Smile has distributed hundreds of thousands of smiles to people across the United States. Every person on our mailing list receives a new drawing to enjoy each month.
Color A Smile is continually growing. We are always looking for more suppliers of drawings and we are always happy to add new names to our distribution list.
