This year, let's all get together and help someone for the holidays. I want to try to raise the $250 with your help to give a child a chance at a great life. I have decided to join the Business of Smiles with Smile Train to help provide surgery for children around the world affected by cleft. If you can even spare $5, I'm sure we can raise the $250. On Christmas eve, I'll make up the difference if the $250 goal has not been reached. If it's been surpassed, even better! :) I know wallets are tight with this economy but please consider giving just a little to help out a child in need.
Children born with cleft cannot eat or speak properly, aren't allowed to attend school or hold a job and face very difficult lives of shame and isolation, pain and heartache. Some children are even abandoned—all because of the way they look. Their clefts usually go untreated because they are too poor to afford the simple repair surgery that takes as little as 45 minutes and costs as little as $250 dollars.
But with your help, we can save these children and give them the life changing surgery they both need and deserve.
Thanks in advance for any donations!!!
