A Personal Note from The Executive Director:
Thank you so much for visiting our website. Here you will get to know who we are and what we do. Since you are here, I know that you are interested in finding out how you can help those affected by breast cancer.
There are many more breast cancer charities asking for your help and donations than there are different kinds of breast cancer.
Some use the money collected for research, some for awareness and that’s all well and good.
Some have high administration cost and so less goes to the actual mission, but still raise a lot of money so, in that light, do a lot of good.
The Smile Never Fades, Inc. (TSNF) is a 501 c(3) nonprofit, with no executive salaries and very little administrative costs; most of which are related to sending you this message via social media. Proudly, more than 90% of all monies donated go to these three direct needs.
Our mission simple: is to provide support and comfort directly to the people affected by breast cancer. Putting ‘Boots On The Ground’, if you will. These are the three main areas TSNF is able to help.
Through the sale of our books, art, social events and generous benefactors, we are able to continue and would greatly appreciate your help as well. Reach deep knowing that we will be ‘Good Shepard’s’ of your money.
Bill Bastas, The Executive Director of The Smile Never Fades, Inc.
The Smile Never Fades is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization based in Austin, Texas. Established in 2009, we focus our energy, talent and resources toward the comfort of women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. We do so in an effort to honor our mothers, wives, sisters, daughters and friends who have struggled with this disease. Their smiles are ever-present in our minds and serve as an important reminder that cancer cannot take away the beauty and strength of the human spirit.
