Charity Update: Smile Train

by TSGal on Wed, August 8th, 2012 at 7:00 am


Last week we announced our chosen charity for the month of August, Smile Train, which provides aid to the  millions of children who are suffering with unrepaired clefts.  Most of these children cannot eat or speak properly, aren’t allowed to attend school or hold a job, and face very difficult lives filled with shame and isolation, pain and heartache.  Their clefts usually go untreated because they are poor – too poor to pay for a simple surgery that has been around for decades.

Smile Train partners with hospitals, surgeons, doctors and providers of medical equipment to help providing a sustaining solution all around the world.  Smile Train doesn’t just help individuals in need; they provide education and technology needed to ensure that the regions they help have everything the need in order to do their own cleft care, surgeries and more for years to come.

As of now, nearly 80,000 Swag Bucks have already been donated thanks to our generous Swaggernauts.  Let’s keep the contributions coming in steadily, as every Swag Buck helps.

You can track all current donation on our Official Charity Drive Page and donate now by clicking here.

Thank you all in advance.
