What is the Make 'm Smile event?
The BIGGEST party celebrating kids with special needs(VIPs)! This annual event for kids and adults with all types of special needs and their families!
What does Aurora Ministries do at Make 'm Smile?
Each year, Aurora Ministries gives away free audio Bible resources to the "VIPs," like the Portrait of Jesus (Children's version) on audio CD, Children's Bibles and devotionals on MP3/CD. We also show VIPs and their families our accessible Audio Bibles & Bible Buddies, which are easy to use by blind, visually impaired, and even kids with special needs.
Last year we gave more than 100 free Audio CD's about Jesus. And because of sponsors, we were able to give out 30 Bible Buddies to VIPs. We wish we could give each and every child a Bible Buddy, but we can't do it alone. We need your help!
What is a Bible Buddy?
Bible Buddies are accessible handheld players with choice of Audio Bible or Bible stories." Each of these players fit inside a pocket in our Bible Buddy animals, which are soft, cuddly, stuffed animals, like a bear, tiger, elephant, lion, or lamb.
