Operation Smile

Today's post is about an organisation called Operation Smile, if you don't know what they do, read on.

Operation Smile organises operations for children who are born with cleft palates.
I have a genetic condition called Cleidocranial dysostosis , and I was lucky to be born without one.
In the UK we don't hear much about cleft palates, as there is money to finance the 45 minute operations, but children in places like Peru, India and Nepal don't have that luxury.

Operation Smile want all children around the world to do just that......smile.
With missions in 2012 planned all over the world I truly believe they are going to achieve just that, but they can't do it without your help.

Can you spare some cash, or most importantly, time? Are you a medical professional who could go and volunteer? Does your local hospital have children who have cleft palates that you could read too? Are you a teacher who can educate future generations? There are so many things you could do to help a child smile.

I know Mothers Day is coming up, and if you donate a surgery you and a child gets a cuddly bear!

Operation Smile have a blog too! I know its another one on your list to check out.

Personally I'm going to become a member of the Smile Circle and do my bit to make a child smile.

I hope you take the time out to check out this awesome charity too.

The work that Operation Smile does is amazing, and I'm all for gifts that keep giving this mothers day :)
