We are raising awareness and funds for the charity Operation Smile for the following reasons:
– They make kids that cannot smile, smile. What could be better than that?
– Each operation only costs on average $240 (150 squid). $240!!!!! That’s it! We think we can raise enough for lots of these little chappies.
– They have a strong presence in China and we want to give back in some way to the society we have been living in.
– Their global program is sustainable. They train local doctors in developing countries and strengthen healthcare systems so more children in some of the poorest areas in the world can be treated outside of their program.
