I’m SMILING IT FORWARD™ because I love to see my children happy. As a mom, nothing warms my heart more than when my children are healthy and enjoying life.

Being a mom of a newborn has its stressful moments, but when it comes to shot time, I almost want to break down and cry myself. We have a procedure in our family that we have done with all three of our girls. Daddy holds them for the shots and then they go to mommy for love after. I know, daddy hates it. But we have to get shots to protect our girls. Once we get home, we give them TYLENOL® to soothe their boo boo’s and icky feeling. It’s only a matter of time till they are laughing and giggling and I don’t feel like such a bad mom.

TYLENOL® was inspired by the heartwarming smile of a child, and the millions of photos that moms proudly post online of their children every day, that they created the SMILING IT FORWARD™ campaign. It is a simple way to share these adorable, smiling photos for a good cause.

The power of SMILING IT FORWARD™ was set in motion by How I Met Your Mother star and social media mother of two, Alyson Hannigan. By sharing the first “smile” of her two daughters Satyana, 4, and Keeva, 1, Hannigan triggered the first donation from TYLENOL® to Children’s Health Fund, an organization well-known for its mobile medical clinics that provide healthcare services to underserved children throughout the U.S. Now, until mid-January, moms across the country can join in by sharing their own smiles at SmilingItForward.com, prompting TYLENOL® to make a $1 donation to Children’s Health Fund, up to $100,000, helping to ensure a doctor’s visit is always within reach for children in need.


Join the cause by visiting smilingitforward.com and upload your photo of what makes you smile! It is really simple and only takes seconds.

Remember, by simply sharing a photo that makes you smile, TYLENOL® will make a $1 donation to Children’s Health Fund (up to $100,000).

About Children’s Health Fund

Every child deserves to be healthy, for this very reason singer/songwriter Paul Simon and Dr. Irwin Redlener were inspired to create Children’s Health Fund.

With so many children living in poverty, kids across the country struggle because they can’t get to the doctor. Preschoolers suffer with untreated earaches. Elementary school kids have trouble seeing the blackboard without glasses. Middle school kids fall asleep in class because of a restless night spent wheezing with asthma. Without needed medicine, high school students are often out sick. At every level, many kids don’t have the chance to do their best in school.

Recognizing the many barriers that keep these disadvantaged kids from the doctors they need, Paul Simon and Dr. Irwin Redlener, pioneered an innovative solution 25 years ago – the first “medical clinic on wheels”.

Today, Children’s Health Fund’s fleet of 50 medical mobile clinics brings health care to sick children in dozens of rural areas and disadvantaged urban neighborhoods nationwide. These clinics offer low-income families a better alternative than the emergency room.

With your support, Children’s Health Fund can be part of the solution and continue to give every child, no matter their economic situation, a chance. For more information about Children’s Health Fund, visit www.ChildrensHealthFund.org.
