the secret ingredients to our great cause

MERCEDES C. SMITH

Founder

With a daring mission to change the world by caring, Mercedes is leading a movement to encourage others to selflessly give back and pay it forward, as the Founder of Care More. Founded in 2014, at the age of 23, the idea of Care More came to Mercedes after discovering her passion to help those in need while empowering them to believe that their current situation was only temporary.

Through her dedication to show the world that every ounce of kindness and generosity can help others become more compassionate – and in turn help make our world a better place, Mercedes sought to bring her vision of helping others and encouraging individuals to care to life. As a humanitarian with a tireless goal to assist others whenever, wherever and however she can, Mercedes is dedicated to developing creative, innovative and strategic ways to get the world to look at giving back as a necessity instead of an occasional charitable duty.
