Joel established the 'Always With A Smile' foundation in 2006, and its unique and visionary philosophy is based on three simple pillars...
With more than 180,000 registered charities in the UK, and many more smaller unregistered groups and organisations, the 'Always With A Smile' foundation's first pillar centres around trying to raise money and awareness for as many different charities and good causes as possible.
The second pillar of the foundation involves inspiring and motivating people to do something which they had never before considered, and it not only it gives people the inspiration to make a real difference to the lives of others, but it reflects Joel's own belief that every moment of life should be lived to the full.
The final pillar, and arguably the most important, is the 'Always with A Smile' foundation's aim to try and put a smile on the face of as many people in the world as possible.
Be sure to head over to the Always With A Smile website and see if it aligns with your charity goals this year.
Joel is also a full time professional male model and actor, who also works behind the camera too at his photographic studio and 13 acre private location in the Midlands...
