One of my personal goals for 2016 is to Give Back in intentional ways. For 2016, I’m pledging my donations to Operation Smile.
Every 3 minutes a child is born with a cleft lip or palate. In many parts of the word, those children don’t have access to safe healthcare and surgery for craniofacial repair. It’s heart breaking to think about how a single surgery could change a life forever.
According to Operation Smile, they’ve provided more than 220,000 free surgical procedures for children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. To build long-term sufficiency in resource poor environments, they train doctors and local medical professionals in our partner countries so they’re empowered to treat their local communities. They also donate medical equipment and supplies and provide year-round medical treatments through our worldwide centers.
The average cost of an Operation Smile Surgery is $240.
So far this year, I’ve donated 13 surgeries to Operation Smile.
I hope you’ll join me in choosing Operation Smile as your charity of choice this year. I set up a fundraising page to make it super easy to DONATE NOW. Even if you can’t finance an entire surgery you can donate as much or as little as you can, and together we can reach my goal of donating 10 more surgeries! That’s 20 families impacted forever!
