The trip that started it all!

In 2003, Simply Smiles founder, Bryan Nurnberger, drove a school bus from Connecticut to the southern tip of Mexico filled with donations from generous donors. It arrived in Oaxaca seven months later stuffed with clothing, toys, toiletries, shoes, and other supplies to support the children living at The Casa Hogar Benito Juarez Children's Home. This video is old school!
