    THE BOOK!!!!! (Plus a FREE eBook)

    A printed copy of our stunning first book, which will delve into that most mystical and yet simple of ideas – happiness – in true a million smiles fashion.

    You’ll come face to face with thousands of smiles, but which will change you? Will it be the rape victim, or will it be the rapist? Could it be the politician, the preacher or the peasant? What about that member of the Taliban, or the death-defying doctor of peace?

    As I show you the people, the places and the ideas that turned me from suicidal teenager to the man of a million smiles, I wonder… whose story will change you?

    The book itself will be a 6x9 inch novel of around 300 pages, with hundreds of photos scattered throughout.

    THE SELFLESS GIVER... (Is this you?)

    This pledge will give you 'one of everything' (as per above). But that's not really the point, because it's not what we get, but what we give that makes us truly happy.

    As such, we're giving you the chance to make three complete strangers VERY HAPPY. See, this 'pledge' allows you to give back, by donating three copies of our book to some of the people or schools we've met along our journey who cannot afford to purchase a copy of the book, but who have applied for a 'sponsored copy'.

    We will of course be happy to put you in contact with the person or school you help to sponsor, so you can see and feel the happiness you're giving to others. So, go on, show your appreciation for all you have and give to those less fortunate.

    Once the campaign is finalised we'll send you a special link so that you can confirm your chosen t-shirt colour/saying and size, as well as your favourite canvas print, and then we'll simply post everything to you.

    All delivery dates are as per above individual items. Books are in Oct 2017.

    SPONSOR A PHOTO EXHIBITION

    Over the next 18 months we'll be travelling the world to promote and set up shows for 'The Largest and Happiest Photo Exhibition on Earth' and we'd love you or your organisation to sponsor us to host an event in your city.

    WHAT YOU GET...

    We will set up a photo exhibition (similar to the image above to the left) in your office or local school, cafe or community centre - which will feature 30 canvas prints and stories from our top 50 (which you'll get to keep at the end). We'll also help to arrange a launch event that we're happy to speak at. There will also be a unique plaque to accompany the exhibition, which will feature your name or your business logo, and an appropriate message to highlight your contribution to a happier world.

    So if you'd like to host a staff, birthday or thank you party with a difference this is sure to impress and inspire. We can even arrange a venue if you need - but sorry, you'll have to provide the wine and nibbles.

    Please email mike@amillionsmilesmovie.com if you have any questions or specific needs.

    WHAT YOU WILL BE GIVING TO OTHERS...

    You will be providing an aged care facility or school with a gallery of 30 photos and stories to inspire the residents or students to chase what makes them smile. We will set up the entire exhibition and will arrange a launch event that you will be invited to speak at. At this event we will unveil a unique plaque to accompany the exhibition, which will feature your name or your business logo, and an appropriate message to highlight your contribution.

    You will also be providing 10 copies of our book to some of the people and schools we've met along our journey who cannot afford to purchase a copy of the book, but who have applied for a 'sponsored copy'.

    Please email mike@amillionsmilesmovie.com if you have any questions or queries. School and aged care exhibitions will begin late 2016, while book deliveries will be in Oct 2017.
