Aigio 13 September 2017
Dear Mrs. Chorianopoulou
the children and the people of "The Smile of Your Child" express the warmest thanks for your very
 important contribution to our efforts and specifically for your contribution to the entertainment of our children in your exhibition, for the needs of our children in Temeni Aigion , where at this moment there are 43 children.
For a voluntary organization, such as "The Smile of the Child", based solely on private initiative, as if it is translated every time, your participation has the value of a treasure.
Climb to you and with you, "The Smile of the Child" manages to survive every year but also to expand its activity, thus making it possible to protect and care for thousands of children who have been deprived of their smile.
Thanks to you and with you, we ensure the innumerable needs we face in order to continue, as well as the necessary moral support to fulfill the often difficult task you have trusted us.
Once again we thank you warmly and hope you always have the opportunity to stand beside the children as members of our great family.
Yours sincerely Kostas Giannopoulos - President 

Triantafyllopoulou Dora- Supervisor of the House of Temeni - Aigion
