At Operation Smile, we'll do whatever it takes to provide free, life-changing cleft surgery to children in the poorest, most remote corners of the world because we believe every child deserves to smile.
By the end of this month our goal is to collect 12,000 cards — and ultimately $12,000 from a donor who's agreed to match us $1 for 1 card — for children who are awaiting this surgery.
Before any intervention, eating and even speaking is difficult for children with cleft lip or cleft palate. Without help, they are likely condemned to a life of suffering because their parents cannot afford the necessary surgery.
But with your signature on this card today, you'll help us reach our goal of raising $12,000 from a generous donor. This $12,000 will allow us to provide a complete surgery for 50 children in some of the poorest corners of the world.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft condition.
Without surgery, as many as 9 out of 10 could die before their 20th birthday. Yet in many countries access to surgery — much less cleft lip and cleft palate surgery — is nearly impossible.
That's where Operation Smile comes in!
For just $240, we can provide a complete surgery to a child during our upcoming medical missions in the Philippines, Vietnam, or Nicaragua.
Your signature on this card today will help us reach our goal of offering 50 cleft lip or cleft palate surgeries to children who would otherwise not be able to afford the procedure, but it will also allow us to hand these children a card with a message of hope.
All it takes is a few seconds — you just have to click one of the links in this email, fill out a card for a child awaiting surgery, and that's it!
We know it will mean so much to them to hear from you.
Through your compassion and generosity, we'll not only bring these children beautiful new smiles, but also the joy and confidence that comes from knowing people all over the world care about them.
While those waiting for surgery live with so much pain and suffering, they also live with an unwavering hope. I hope you'll join us and show them an abundance of hope and love through your personal message.
Before the end of the month, we need to get 12,000 cards signed! With those 12,000 cards, a generous donor will gift us $12,000 and allow 50 children to receive life changing surgery.
