Joyful Smiles Thru Faith

A Purpose Discovered

Jacqueline Federico has experienced more illness, challenges, and heartache since childhood than one person should ever have to survive. 


After graduating from The University of Toledo, getting married to her wonderful husband something was missing. 


It was during an unusually long hospital stay that God revealed her purpose: To create a moment of joy and hope in a child's life when they need it most.


Our mission is simple and beautiful- 


Sharing Joy Thru Faith, One Smile At A Time





About Us

We put together Kare Packages filled with handmade Thinking of You cards, toys, activities, and much more more. The cards are made by members of our community, and are a keystone of our packages.


Established in 2014,  Jacqueline first began delivering Kare Packages to Promedica & Mercy Children's Hospitals.  The community response has been amazing, and as awareness of our organization grows, so do the number of children we can serve. 


We serve children being bullied, abused, having a mental health crisis, and who have lost a parent to addiction.


Joyful Smiles Thru Faith is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt charity completely funded by people just like you.  Please consider joining our cause!
