Too often, we take simple abilities for granted. Take a smile for instance - you may have never imagined your life if you weren't able to smile, to show happiness, love and warmth through a smile. You may even think to yourself, "Wait, everyone has the ability to smile."
That's where you're wrong.
Every 3 minutes, a child somewhere in the world is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate. Each and every day, many of these children with a cleft struggle with even the most basic abilities - to laugh, to speak, to SMILE.
At Operation Smile, we believe that every child deserves the right to smile. Over the last three decades, we've provided more than 200,000 free surgeries to children born with cleft lip and cleft palate - helping those children express themselves through a smile.
But for each child we've been able to help, there are many left behind. We need your help to reach them.
Take action today: Sign the pledge today and join Operation Smile's commitment to give new smiles to children waiting around the world.
