Everybody Deserves A Smile (EDAS) is a Not -For Profit Organization that began as a grassroots project in Edmonton, right before Christmas in 2003. Four friends came together and left 88 homemade care packages on garbage bins in the backstreets of downtown. At the time they hoped to bring a smile to those living on our streets, letting them know that they were not alone and not forgotten that Christmas. Now, several years later, thousands of care packages have been given to the homeless, and this simple yet powerful purpose continues to this day. Although EDAS has focused on helping the homeless, it aspires to help everyone feel significant in some way.
