Operation Smile, a nonprofit organization, raises money to pay for surgeries for children born with cleft lips in third world countries. In more depth, Operation Smile is a “private, nonprofit, volunteer medical service organization providing reconstructive surgery and related health care to indigent children and young adults in the United States and developing countries. Operation Smile provides education and training to physicians and other health professionals to achieve long-term self sufficiency.” President and Co-founder, Kathy Magee, stands behind her statement when she says, “Every child that has a facial deformity is our responsibility. If we don’t take care of that child, there’s no guarantee that anyone else will.” This organization is aimed towards bettering the lives of these underprivileged children of families who do not have the resources to fund this kind of surgery.
We, at Aleuro Inc, aim to support this special organization by holding fundraisers every year! This year we decided to host the fundraiser for Operation Smile at Kendra Scott! This was an awesome opportunity for the surrounding community to come together, shop for super cute jewelry, and give back to this selfless organization. With each purchase of any Kendra Scott item during the fundraiser, 20% was donated to Operation Smile!
We wanted to give out a HUGE thank you to all who came out to support us and Operation Smile! It is because of you all that we were able to hit our goal of $2,000. With this money we will pay for 8 surgeries this year! Again, thank you all so much and we hope to see everyone next year!
