A very dear friend of mine has a little boy who was born four years ago with a cleft lip and pallet. He is a very precious little boy who means the world to me and with the help of a charity known as Operation Smile he got a wonderful start on what could have been a very rocky life.
What is Operation Smile?
Operation smile is a medical charity that helps children her are born with a cleft lip and/or pallet. These children often have trouble eating, speaking and even smiling. Often the parents are in a financial bind when these babies are born and unable to provide them with the care they need… this is where Operation Smile steps in.
They have been providing free cleft lip surgeries since 1982 and have had a great impact on changing many lives. These children are given the chance to lead happy, healthy lives. Operation Smile trains local Doctors in developing countries to offer these children a normal life that may not have been available to them before. Many volunteers and many companies join together to help these children out.
I always like to give a big shout out to companies who donate to Operation Smile and would like to say a big THANK YOU to Campus Book Rentals who generously supports Operation Smile along with offering book rentals at a very affordable price. Two thumbs up to you guys on helping two of the most important areas of children’s lives… their well being and later in life a more affordable education!
