But there’s more to this day than just smiles. On World Smile Day, a special ‘Let’s See Your Smile’ video will showcase the best submissions. Here’s where it gets even more beautiful: for each view this video garners on World Smile Day, Visit Orlando pledges to donate $1 to the Special Olympics, aiming for a heartwarming $25,000 to support their remarkable global work.

You’ve got until October 1st to submit your smile-worth photos on VisitOrlando.com/Facebook. And remember, when the ‘Let’s See Your Smile’ video goes live on October 5th, each view counts – literally! It’s your chance to help Visit Orlando reach their generous $25,000 goal.

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the incredible work of the Special Olympics. This international organization isn’t just about sports; it’s a powerful movement unleashing the human spirit through the joy and transformative power of sports. Operating globally, they’re champions in fighting inactivity, injustice, intolerance, and social isolation. They empower and inspire individuals with intellectual disabilities, fostering a more inclusive and welcoming society. Since its inception in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the Special Olympics has grown exponentially, now supporting nearly four million athletes in 170 countries.

So, mark your calendars, prep your best smiles, and let’s make this World Smile Day one for the books. Every view, every share, and every smile counts in making a difference. And remember, by simply watching and sharing the video, you’re contributing to a noble cause.
