"Todo Por Una Sonrisa" on TV

For years the "Todo Por Una Sonrisa" (Anything for a smile) team has been helping patients at children´s hospitals to smile and dream.Today there are "Todo Por Una Sonrisa" teams that are helping in Cádiz, Sevilla, Málaga and Huelva to make the children´s hospital stays more pleasant.

Since they started their journey, the ministry has encouraged children and parents with their clowns, they have helped them to dream with their stories, they have made them laugh with their puppets and they have taught their tricks and crafts through their activities. In addition to all this, they were also chosen this year to ring in the holidays for all the Andalucians on "Canal Sur" (Channel of the South). This television station sponsored a Christmas greeting video contest in which they received many video entries. The video from "Todo Por Una Sonrisa" was chosen to become the original and touching Christmas greeting which will be aired on Christmas Eve.

In the video appears one of the children from the Hospital of Sevilla, Yanire. She is one that the "Todo Por Una Sonrisa" team especially loves because they have known her for a long time because she´s been fighting her illness for years. They chose Yanire because her 12-year-old life is drawing to an end and Gloria Rosado, the "Todo Por Una Sonrisa" director, knew that she loves to sing when she has an audience to listen to her.

Once her parents and the hospital gave their consent, Yanire recorded the video. This experience was a great motivator for her and even helped her to rally during a strong crisis in her illness.

It´s always beautiful to see a child smile and even more so when you know that the smile helps to bring some comfort in the midst of his or her pain.
