The Smile of the Child is a non profit organization that is dedicated in helping children in need (in any kind of need). This organization was the wish of a ten year old boy, Andrew Giannopoulos, who suffered from cancer. He was a very sensitive boy with currage and a big heart.
In his jurnal, in the 9th of November 1995 he wrote: We all know, talk about, some kids in the streets with no smile. They don't smile becouse the don't have money, they don't have toys, the don't have food and some of them don't even have parents. So, think and stop talking. Lets come together and give everything we can to the poor:albanians, white, black, they are all children and they deserve a smile. This organization will be called: THE SMILE OF THE CHILD. So, come together and lets help. Together we can do it.
His smile was always present, until the last moment, even though he had to face a lot of pain. His courage and patience, in the difficult moments he had to face, show just how big his heart was. He is an inspiration to all, and now, the SMILE OF THE CHILD, serves only one purpose: to put a smile in every kids face.
These are the lyrics of a song written and dedicated to Andrew:
"What I remember the most,
in your eyes a light was shining,
travelling like a child god,
in your face.
What I am afraid the most,
is for you not to forget our contact,
now that you found in another route,
But you are here,
The brightest of all smiles,
Wherever I might go,
everyday I will love you even more,
and the hope that wakes up in my heart,
I owe it to you.
Wherever I go,
For you, I will look the sun in my eyes,
the sky will have for us the same view,
and you smile will always be there, Andrew.
The things you did't have the chance to say,
are now sleeping in a seethrough silence,
I sαw a wish on you pillow,
not to be afraid.
The things you did't have the chance to see,
now will become a magical image,
a song that will look like a prayer,
to remember me....
