The Wrinkles Association of Smiles fights the social isolation of the elderly. For this we need a van for the visits, accompaniments and activities. Support us with your input and allow us to continue smiling, smiling with us!

The Associação Rugas de Sorrisos was formalized in October 2017 and aims to combat the social isolation and loneliness of the elderly. Through our services we intend to delay institutionalization, promoting autonomy, self-esteem and conviviality between generations, recovering life histories, traditions and making the hours of each of them brighter and more smiling.

As a companion to the home, accompaniment to institutions and services, activities and tours, we believe to be the perfect accomplice in the day-to-day of this age group, to whom we offer attention and emotions, in a simple, creative and competent way, adapting to their needs and tastes.

Currently the Association is constituted by volunteers and benefit from our services 24 users. It is for them that we appeal to your support and generosity. We need to acquire an adapted 9-seat van and hire full-time human resources so that we can continue our work efficiently and give them a quality response, also extending our range of action. Help us reach this goal!

We will make a clear and direct campaign, calling for the solidarity of all of you and counting on the dissemination within civil society, so that we can thus explore all opportunities for donations.

In conclusion, we expect to carry out a strong campaign with associations, public and private institutions and, above all, with our friends, associates and family members. We intend to reach a potential network of 5000 people in order to achieve our purpose!

Our way of giving back and recognizing your support is thanking us on our facebook page, with a video made by one of our users, with one of our handiwork also done by them, a Wrinkles of Smiles tshirt, a customized agenda for us , or if institutions or companies support the possibility of gluing a sticker or magnet with the name and logo on the van.

Your contribution is valuable and the smile of the elderly is priceless.

About the author

The Wrinkles Association of Smiles is a non-profit social institution. Its mission is to accompany elderly people in isolation, and to "rescue" them from loneliness. Constituted by volunteers, we aim very shortly to create a technical team that will consistently ensure this work of social animation and that allows to increase the number of beneficiaries. Our motivation is with our users and their comfort.

Our goal is to improve your daily life and to meet the individual expectations of each one, always adapting to your needs.

They are the ones who are most interested in any act we do. Therefore, we will strive so that this objective of the acquisition of a van is possible and real for our good operation and growth.

    Campanha Sorrisos em Andamento

    Bom dia a todos!
    A nossa campanha chegou ao fim no passado dia 19 e ficámos muito longe do objectivo pretendido...mas independentemente disso foi uma experiência muito positiva e é de coração cheio de gratidão que vos deixamos esta mensagem.
    Estamos muito gratos à equipa PPL que do inicio ao fim nos orientou com transparência, rapidez e muito profissionalismo;
    Mais gratos ainda aos nossos apoiantes e seguidores pelos contributos incondicionais, palavras de incentivo e divulgação constante... sem vocês nada disto seria possível!
    E apesar de ainda estamos muito longe de reúnir as condições necessárias para os nossos serviços funcionarem devidamente e como o idealizamos desde sempre, aos poucos vamos abrindo caminho... Obrigada por continuarem a acreditar e connosco!
    Atenciosamente,
    Helena Saraiva
    (Presidente da Associação Rugas de Sorrisos)
