IMAGINE PEACE FOUNDATION
A Year of Gifting Week Two
World One Smile At A Time"
This week I was
struck with how powerful and healing a smile can be; a warm, caring and sincere
smile can brighten and transform a day into something wonderful. Then I realized there children who aren't
able to express their joy in a simple gesture like a smile, because of a birth
defect. The charity of the week can give
this gift to children who were born without the ability to speak, eat properly
or even smile. A simple procedure can
restore all these things that we take for granted in our life and you can
help. Our minimum donation is just $3-10.00. Please donate directly to Smile Train what
you can and pass it on.
Be grateful that
you can smile; do it often and purposefully this week !
SMILE TRAIN VISION-
many charities that do many different things, The Smile Train mission is
focused on solving a single problem: cleft lip and palate.
Clefts are a major problem in developing countries where there are
millions of children who are suffering with unrepaired clefts. Most cannot eat
or speak properly. Aren't allowed to attend school or hold a job. They face very
difficult lives filled with shame and isolation, pain and heartache.
The good news is every single child with a cleft can be helped with
surgery that costs as little as $250 and takes as little as 45 minutes.
This is our mission:
-To provide free cleft surgery for millions of poor
children in developing countries.
-To provide free cleft-related training for doctors and
Until there are no more children who need help and we have
eradicated the problem of clefts.
You can donate by
mail, phone or online on the Donate page.
Thank you for your kind donation!
