'Smiles for Miles'

'Smiles for Miles' books are colouring books made to raise funds for young refugees, with love from graffiti artists, street artists, illustrators and more! Not for profit, just to show them we care.

We can give a refugee child a free colouring book for every one that is sold. There are over ten million misplaced children in the world right now, and everyone has been colouring to help them. In 3 months we have sold over a thousand copies, but we won't stop there..

In 2017 we aim to deliver as many books as we can to the children living in refugee camps, alongside painting group murals with them. The gift of art can break down barriers, and this is a revolution! We also want to paint group murals with refugees now living over in the UK. This will help them to connect to their new communities and spark imaginations during these difficult times.
Books cost just £5 each, so by buying a copy, many people can join us on our mission to bring a smile to their lives.

Here at Uthink PDPs Hammersmith Creative Hub we have 30 books to gave away to the 1st 30 kids through the doors before Christmas.......

You can help us MASSIVELY by spreading the word! Share our project by simply downloading and putting up our brand new poster in your home town. You can print it in A4 / A3, colour or black and white..
