The Smile! Album was a Christmas charity fundraiser initally proposed by Senator Myth. It was designed for brony musicians to give music made during the Christmas season music to generate money for a charitable cause. For this album they elected to donate money to the Children's Cancer Association through the Bronies for Good site. This was the first of several charitable albums which became the Seeds of Kindness albums. The Smile! album is often seen as a prequel to that series (or as a continuation).
