Operation Smile does amazing work

Without Operation Smile, many children would not receive the precious gift of sometimes, the most basic opportunities. Operation Smile provides much needed surgeries to children, all over the world, with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.

These children may not be able to eat, speak, or even smile. Can you imagine your child suffering? Many families cannot afford to provide surgery to their child.

Operation Smile relies on generous donations, volunteers and support for their organization. It only takes $240.00 to help provide surgery to a child with a cleft lip or cleft palate. And how amazing is it that the surgery can take only 45 minutes (or less)!

Thanks to companies like, Operation Smile has opportunity to help more children and young adults receive free consultations and surgeries. partnered with Operation Smile in 2011. This new partnership brings a new opportunity to each child it helps. has committed to helping at least 1,000 children and young adults. This means 1,000 facial surgeries to help change their lives.
