Operation Smile

I wanted to write today to let all of my readers know about a wonderful organization that I have found called Operation Smile. What is it well... Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe! 

I have included a picture (from http://kidshealth.org/) of what cleft lip looks like so you can understand how hard it could be for these children without these surgeries!

I felt compelled to write about this wonderful organization because of my background working with Special needs pre-schooler’s.  I have worked with several children who were in the process of having these surgeries done or had had them done and where at the stages of learning how to live differently than they had been living. Learning how to eat, talk and even smile.

The deformities that operation smile helps to fix might just seem unsightly to some but to the children living with them it effects their daily life including talking and even just simply eating!  Now because of operation smile children around the world are being helped and healed and being enabled to live a normal life!
I am pleased to inform my readers that a company called Campus Book Rentals has decided to donate a portion from every book rental to Operation smile!  So I just want to put it out there and impel my readers who have children or are yourselves attending schooling in the fall to consider Campus book rentals for all your textbookrental needs and help out these wonderful children in the process.
