Create your Smile Fund: Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft condition and many are unable to access the surgery they need. You can choose to do something about it.
Once your Smile Fund is created, tell your friends and family about it. Use our tool kits to help spread the word via email and social media. Sit back and watch as new smiles are created!
We'll send the money you raise to areas around the world with greatest need for surgery and report back to you with monthly communications how you’re making a difference.
When it comes to inspiring donations, the possibilities are limitless. Here are some awesome ideas from a few of our favorite Smile Champions.
Dr. Russell asked for donations in lieu of gifts for his 70th birthday
Todd, Jim, and Alex competed in a Tough Mudder competition in New Jersey
The Cousteau family asked for donations in honor of their beloved pet
Dorothea hosted a cocktail event to raise funds to support Operation Smile
Shana skydived to raise awareness and smiles for children around the world
Dr. Matthews collected and matched donations from patients in his office
Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate and many are unable to access the safe, effective surgical care they need due to shortage of surgeons, medical infrastructure and affordability. At Operation Smile we believe that every child deserves exceptional surgical care regardless of where they’re born or how much money their family makes.
