Meet the incredible team at Smile.io who is powering smiles for 89 Watsi patients (and their families!) across 8 countries by funding their high-impact medical care and rewarding the world. For over a decade, Smile.io has been helping the world’s largest brands create innovative reward and loyalty programs that put a smile on their customers’ faces. Now, they’re spreading joy and happiness even further by making healthcare a reality for all.
"We know there are inequities in access to healthcare around the world. At Smile.io we strive to live out our values to be hungry, humble, and human. Helping create positive change in healthcare for everyone naturally embodies those values," Smile.io's Head of PeopleOps Amanda shared with us. "We have supported Watsi in the past and wanted to give back to those who cannot afford healthcare for themselves. Watsi provides the perfect opportunity to extend our goal of creating positive change for patients around the world. Being a fully remote company with employees around the world, we wanted to give back in a way that had a global impact. Each day we strive to be humble, hungry, and human with what we do inside and outside of Smile.io. Big thank you to Watsi for all the great work you are doing, we are so happy and proud to be a part of it!"
For this campaign, the Smile.io team had a holiday store for employees to shop at and choose their gifts, and any remaining funds were dedicated to supporting patients on Watsi. Some people even chose to donate their full credit to Watsi!
Smile.io’s donations have already funded successful medical treatments for patients like Noah, a young boy from Tanzania. Smile.io came together with 22 donors on watsi.org and fully funded his life-changing surgery. Noah is now back home and healthy—doing everything a 3-year-old should enjoy in life!
At Watsi we believe that everyone everywhere has a role in building a better future and doing good. Every company, every leader, and every employee is instrumental and critical to this movement. Thank you Smile.io team for living out your values. Thank you for inspiring generosity and leading the way. We hope you know what an incredible impact you are making with your generous support of Watsi.
