"SUPPORTING STUDENTS IN EDUCATION & YOUTH TOWARDS POSITIVE OUTCOMES WHILE CHANGING BEHAVIORS FROM NEGATIVE TO POSITIVE PROMOTING SMILES"
About us... Total Sunshine’s History
“Total Sunshine” was initially conceptualized by a young EMT-Paramedic in Washington, DC who was moved to make a difference in the lives of the people she served, towards happiness. She regularly witnessed and experienced the pain, tragedies, injustices and sadness in the streets and homes of our nations` capital. This insight galvanized her into action for positive change, thus “Total Sunshine” was created.
Idealistically, “Total Sunshine” represents happiness, goodwill, tolerance, peace, balance, laughter, love, unity, harmony, understanding, loyalty, compassion, or any positively perceived event or behavior that will promote a smile in our presently “too unhappy” global community.
The components of “Total Sunshine” are: The non-profit Corporation -Total Sunshine, Incorporated.
The Television show-“Total Sunshine!” Host-Miss Total Sunshine.
The television show was created first; it has been broadcast in Washington, DC on DCTV on a weekly basis since January 2001. Miss Total Sunshine intended for the show to embody a “total package of entertainment,” thus “promoting smiles” for viewers. On January 15, 2003, the progressively increased charitable functions of the “Total Sunshine!” television show prompted her to become the founder of the non-profit Corporation, titled same, in order to more completely serve the public and “smile promoting” fashion.
In this quest for promoting smiles to the public through broadcasting messages of goodwill and tolerance, rewarding top graduates, performing charitable deeds, and embodying a myriad of tactics, Miss Total Sunshine has recruited a dynamic Total Sunshine Team of highly motivated individuals.
Activities of the nonprofit Corporation broadcast regularly with in the television show for maximum outreach possibilities. The Total Sunshine Team is fully dedicated to broadcasting messages goodwill and providing charitable assistance wherever and whenever possible.
