What is the price of a smile? That is a question that Alton Thacker, the man who started Tiny Tim’s Foundation for Kids, often asks people when they wonder why he founded this charity in 1996. Tiny Tim’s Foundation for Kids is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization built around the dream of bringing a smile to as many children’s faces as possible.
When a child plays with a toy, it sparks their imagination. They learn to think for themselves. They begin to explore the possibilities around them. Unfortunately, there are 500 million children around the world who have never had a toy; those children most likely never will have a toy. Tiny Tim’s Foundation for Kids believes that those 500 million children deserve a reason to smile.
That is why Tiny Tim’s Foundation for Kids builds and delivers 64,000 toys every year to needy children around the globe. These toys have been delivered to many countries including; Iraq, Afghanistan, Ghana, Thailand, Korea, Russia, Mexico, Brazil, the Dominican Republic and needy children inside the United States. They are also sent to hospitals where patients can play with and keep them; including Primary Children’s and Shriner’s hospitals. Wherever they have been sent, the same story returns. They bring smiles to the children’s faces and cultural, linguistic, and social barriers fade away.
Tiny Tim’s Foundation for Kids is based in West Jordan, Utah. It is a locally based organization that works within the community to help make a difference in the world. Boy Scouts, youth groups, and religious organizations are among the many that have chosen to donate or volunteer their services. Tiny Tim’s is one of the last truly non-profit organizations. Nobody draws a salary from the charity. Every dollar donated is directed toward those who matter most, the children.
