Reason2Smile is a non-profit organization currently running through the Adirondack Community Church in Lake Placid, NY. This organization seeks to aid the orphaned and at-risk children in Kenya - specifically the children of Jambo Jipya School (located just north of Mombasa, Kenya). Reason2Smile believes that every life is valuable and that every person (specifically every child) deserves a reason to smile. Reason2Smile wants to give these children a reason by providing them with a safe living environment, the proper nutrition, and a good-quality education. This organization provides a link between the people of America and the children of Kenya. It's goal is to help people recognize that it is a far greater tragedy to be rich and not realize it (as most of us Americans are) than it is to be poor and not realize it (as the children of Jambo Jipya are).
