I created my Smile Fund to raise money for Operation Smile – a global medical nonprofit organization that provides free surgeries for children around the world born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
I've always wanted to participate in My Cause My Cleats since the beginning of this NFL tradition, but never had a cause that was close to my heart. But recently, I just found out that my son will be born with a cleft lip. My wife and I were rocked when we first heard this news, but in our research we have found that this is something that is much more common than we knew.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate – and many families can't afford the surgery they desperately need. I couldn't imagine not having resources to help my child like many parent's experience.
If left untreated, cleft conditions can affect every part of a child's life.
They need our help.
Will you help me bring hope and new smiles to children suffering from facial deformities by supporting my fundraising goal?
My goal is to raise $5,000 and match your generous donations to help heal a smile and change a life.
For as little as $240 and in as few as 45 minutes, Operation Smile can provide life-changing surgery – and renewed hope – for children around the world. Please, consider making your tax-deductible gift today.
