mission of The Sunshine Smile Crew is for every member,
every day to make at least one person smile.
We all need to smile, of course we do,
but sometimes we all need help to smile and some people need
than others. When you are down on your luck, when the whole
world appears to be against you it can indeed be very hard
Just as in every town, city and village
right across the world here in Milton Keynes we have those
who are so far down on their luck they are forced to
rough-sleep on our streets. We have those who are homeless
but are fortunate enough to have found accommodation with
The YMCA. We have friends who, without The Food Bank or The
Soup Run would go hungry. Do you know what it is like to be
hungry with no prospect of something to eat ? I don't
How can we help our friends in these
situations to smile ?
How about SMILE MAGAZINE ?
Every Saturday Dreamsai hands out food
bags of love to homeless rough-sleepers and those it finds
who are hungry. Could we make that the starting point
for Smile Magazine ?
SMILE MAGAZINE - a simple eight side
newsletter of fun and inspiration produced on a domestic
Eight pages of inspirational fun to make
people smile and be happy.
many food bags does Dreamsai hand out each week ? 100
? We need to check that. To produce an eight page
newsletter on a domestic computer will cost about £30.
Dreamsai operates every Saturday, if we put one of our
inspirational cards into bags on days where we do not have a
new edition of Smile Magazine the total monthly cost of the
enterprise would be around £50 a month. I could
finance that myself.
If Smile Magazine were to have a
publication date of the second Saturday in the month then he
first edition would be Saturday 13th December 2019.
Subsequent publication dates would be:
Saturday 10th January 2020
Saturday 7th February 2020
Saturday 13th March 2020
Saturday 16th April 2020
Saturday 13th May 2020
Saturday 13th June 2020
Saturday 11th July 2020
Saturday 8th August 2020
Saturday 12th September 2020
Saturday 10th October 2020
Saturday 14th November 2020
Saturday 14th December 2020
I feel it is important if we do launch
Smile Magazine that we give the project a long-term
We support Milton Keynes Winter Night
Shelter which operates its season across the time when our
first edition would be published. Could Milton Keynes Winter
Night Shelter use our magazine ? I am not sure. If
Smile Magazine could be of help how many copies would Milton
Keynes Winter Night Shelter need ?
