New Life Smile

Changing Lives By Changing Smiles
Real People - Real Stories - Real Need
We’ll never keep up with demand, but we still want to try

Each month we receive hundreds of stories from people, whose lives are on hold because of an embarrassing smile. We provide as many smile makeovers as we possibly can but despite our best efforts, we’ll never be able to help them all – at least not alone. The people you see on this page need help. New Life Smile gives 100% of every dollar donated to these (and other) individuals, and Brighter Image Lab matches every donation – dollar for dollar. This year we plan to give away more new smiles than ever before, but we can’t do it without you. Help us with our mission to find, select, fund and deliver a life changing smile to the people who need it the most. Let’s change a life with a new smile, together.

Introducing: Elbow Funding™
Because you should SEE where your money goes

‘Crowdfunding’ may be a buzz word in the sharing economy, but with New Life Smile, we rely on something a little closer to home. We like to call it ‘Elbow Funding’. This is the kind of giving you do for someone you know. If you’ve ever been in a social setting when an obvious charitable need arose, and gotten a subtle nudge from your significant other in, you know exactly what we mean. Unlike large non-profit organizations that funnel their donations into a giant pool to be divvied up anonymously, we make it a point to highlight the people who will be helped by your donation. What better way to inspire giving than with the story of those who receive the gift?

It All Started With Dee
A desperate problem, met with a life changing solution
It all started with Dee
“Even the worst stories... can have a great ending”

Dee’s story is both. Not only were we able to turn her story around, but doing so was the spark that started us on our New Life Smile mission. Dee came to us as she was trying to put her life in order. She had nowhere to stay, no job prospects and most notably, she had no way of carrying on a conversation without covering her mouth. She was trying to hide the fact that she was missing her front teeth. After some initial hesitation, she eventually opened up about her struggles. She told us about the abuse she suffered in a past relationship (the cause of the damage to her smile) and the downward spiral of being shamefully embarrassed of her smile while at the same time, trying to be valuable in a marketplace that puts so much importance on a bright personality and a friendly face.

We knew Dee didn’t have the resources to find the help she needed, and that meant WE had to to something. We also knew that a new outfit, hairstyle and makeup, wasn’t going to do her any benefit without a new smile. So that’s exactly what we gave her. Dee, and the hundreds of New Life Smile recipients who’ve come after her, all have one thing in common. A new smile wasn’t just a chance to their appearance. It was a turning point in their life. When we saw what we could do for Dee, we knew it was time to bring the concept of this life changing charity - to the masses.


We’re asking for your help to change even more lives, but making a small donation to the New Life Smile fund. Because of generous contribution matching from companies like Brighter Image Lab, even $5 can make a difference. Please donate and help change a life by changing a smile, today.
