When a child is born with a cleft lip and cleft palate, they face immeasurable pain and hardship. They're often abandoned by their parents, the people who are supposed to love them most. They struggle to speak properly, to eat properly, and to simply smile. They face the torment of neighbors and classmates.
But with as little as 45 minutes and $240, one surgery can change all of that. Forever.
The Argyros Family Foundation knows how heart-breaking — how life-threatening — cleft lip and cleft palate are, and how urgently these children need surgery to fix their broken smiles. They've pledged $1 million, and they've challenged supporters like you to match it.
Help us meet that challenge — please make your tax-deductible gift before December 31st. Your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar.
Donate now. Help change the lives of other waiting children.
