Sunshine Acres provides a bright spot in kids’ lives
Since 1954, Sunshine Acres has provided a home for more than 2,000 at-risk youth that have been separated from their parents. Known as the “Miracle in the Desert,” Sunshine Acres currently houses over 80 children in group homes on their 125-acre Mesa campus. Following their steadfast beliefs in never soliciting financial support, the organization has remained completely privately funded through unsolicited community support.
When we heard about the great things Sunshine Acres was doing for kids in need, we were eager to help!
For many non-profit organizations, it’s rarely a top priority, nor is it realistic, to spend their already limited funds on upgrading their IT environment. We made a commitment to Sunshine Acres to help them with their technology needs. Together, we will work toward creating a cost-effective infrastructure that will effectively support the organization’s daily operations and also help create additional educational opportunities for the children in their care.

Smile Train changes lives one smile at a time
Smile Train is an international children’s charity that focuses on solving a single worldwide problem that more than 200,000 new babies are born and faced with every year, a cleft lip and palate. Developing a truly sustainable model with a “teach a man to fish” methodology, Smile Train has helped elevate the standards for cleft patient care around the world. This has resulted in helping more than 1.5 million children in over 90 countries receive the treatment that they need to correct their cleft lip or palate. Children who receive this treatment are left with immediate results; giving them the opportunity to live a healthy and productive life through improving breathing, speaking, hearing, eating and removing them from living in isolation.
When we heard about Smile Train, we immediately felt this organization was one we wanted to support!
With one donation, we were able to give a four-month-old child the ability to not be held back by a disability in her future. After this first donation and seeing the results, we knew we could help change the world one smile at a time, or at least for that one smile, change their world.
