Philanthropic Friday – January 10, 2014


It is more than likely that a hospitalized child has touched your life in some way:  through personal experience with a young loved one or through another’s story.

I have mentioned before that I am fortunate to have friends who dedicate their lives to helping others.  My special friend Annie and her husband Matt created an organization that helps make life easier for children (and their families) who are in the intensive care units at children’s hospitals.  They tirelessly accomplish this in memory, love and honor of their son Brady.

Beautiful Brady, with his boundless smile, spent more than half of his life in and out of various children’s hospitals so Annie and Matt have a tender understanding of what life is like for parents of a child whose dwelling is a hospital. They have unselfishly channeled their energy and knowledge by partnering with children’s hospitals to bring comfort and assistance to those who are experiencing what they experienced.

The Brady’s Smile programs improve the lives of families at 15 hospitals across 7 states (NY, NJ, CT, PA, VA, MA & VT).  Brady’s Smile is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization (without employees) that relies on volunteers and contributors to carry out their mission.

To learn more about Brady’s story (and his sweet smile), how he inspired his Parents’ commitment to carrying on their son’s legacy as well as the amazing deeds carried out by the Brady’s Smile group PLUS fundraising events, please go to

I know that you will be inspired.
