Your donation helps moms, dads, and surviving siblings after the death of a child.

Smile Again Ministries has a retreat center near Crosslake, MN where families come for counseling and support after the death of a child. Every 10 minutes a child between the age of birth and 19 years of age dies in America. SAM has opened Whitetail Lodge specifically for families who have had a child die. Pat and Judy Misener, who themselves have lost a 13 year old daughter, live on sight and provide counseling to those who come to the lodge. You can find out more about SAM by going to our website at All gifts to SAM at tax deductible since we are a 501 C 3 organization.
