Ileana's Smile - Watch. Give. Share.

Love Light & Melody

May 20, 2014

Ileana, a little girl with a big heart and lightning smile, grew up in a trash dump in Nicaragua and was forced into child prostitution. Tragically, she contracted HIV and passed away in 2011. Ileana’s Smile is a Kickstarter campaign to share her story so that other vulnerable children like her can be protected and live. Inspired by Ileana’s courage and smile, non-profit Love, Light & Melody and spokesperson/musician Brad Corrigan are raising funds through Kickstarter to produce a documentary film in honor of her short, beautiful and bold life. If the campaign is successful, proceeds from the film will raise awareness and funding for the International Justice Mission and World Childhood Foundation.
