At Operation Smile, we'll do whatever it takes to provide free, life-changing cleft surgery to children living in resource-limited areas of the world because we believe every child deserves to live a healthy life full of promise and potential.
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 cleft surgery.
Before any intervention, eating and even speaking can be difficult for children born with cleft lip and cleft palate. Without help, they are often subjected to ridicule and harassment 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 surgery for as many as 50 children around the world.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft condition. 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 as little as $240, we can provide surgery to a waiting child.
Your signature on this card today will help us reach our goal of offering 50 cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries to children who would otherwise not be able to afford the procedure, and it will also allow us to hand these children a card with a message of hope.
All it takes is a few seconds. Just click one of the links in this email and fill out a card for a child awaiting surgery! 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 around 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 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 enable as many as 50 children to receive life-changing surgery.
