Smile4Kids Campaign 2022

Our 2nd annual Smile 4 Kids Campaign features a different cause each month of 2022 close to our hearts and our mission. Join us in supporting the causes that mean the most to you! 

New in 2022: Collaboration with like-minded Community Partners to help us champion the cause of the month.

#SelfLove with ConnectMed this February!

This February, you can help support ConnectMed’s Camp Cosmos Programs that allow young people with differences connect with each other and special guests, from doctors to therapists to advocates.  Together they figure out how to love themselves and live their best possible lives. 

We have EIGHT Camp Cosmos Programs planned for this year, both in person and virtual, so your support is much appreciated as we try to reach as many kiddos as consistently as possible!

As always, ANY gift is greatly cherished!

ConnectMed is also thrilled to collaborate with Kim Reed and her “Everybody Has Sh*t” podcast as our very first Smile 4Kids Community Partner for February 2022. 

Kim Reed has been a San Diego radio and TV personality since the mid 90s. For many years, she worked while dealing with an immensely painful, undiagnosed auto-immune disorder that included complete, full body “fire-like” painful flare-ups and hair loss.

Kim created this podcast because she has recognized the importance of reaching out and building community to overcome challenges. Too often on her journey, Kim turned inward to hide her pain, while much of the rest of the world thought she was in full health. Her mission for “Everybody Has Sh*”  is to share the voices, stories,  resources, insights, and guidance from others who face ongoing struggles – physical, emotional or social. 

Together, we want to convey a common message, especially to those living with physical differences:

You are not alone. There are so many others going through similar experiences and so many who care and are ready to support! Connect and share with them to help figure out how to live your best life!
