About Smiles Through Cars
The charity’s mission began with an introduction between Josh Aryeh and Jessica, an 8-year-old girl in Queens, NY battling a rare form of cancer.  Jessica had lost sight of the joy in her life and Josh knew there was something that had to be done.  A car enthusiast, Josh borrowed a family member’s sports car and embarked on a mission to make Jessica smile. That was the first visit, but to date, Smiles Through Cars has conducted 30,000 visits to children in need.  The organization has satellite locations in New York, New Jersey, California, Nevada, and Florida, and its goal is to realize 100 locations globally by 2025.
