Lindsey Peters started a charity by the name of Sharing Smiles that makes bears for the children at Mercy Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital. They plan to add Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital this year as well as another charity organization. Lindsey is now 17 years old and works year round with her friends and family and she has a “Sharing Smiles Community Day” every year to invite all members of the community to join her. They started out making maybe 100 bears a year. Every year they have exceeded the number from the year before. This year they have made 1035 bears so far. They have about 80-100 people that help them with this every year! As a child that struggled with health issues herself, Lindsey knows how scary it can be. She wanted to make the children suffering smile.
