Dear Family and Friends,
I am thrilled to fundraise for Operation Smile Canada to ensure children around the world affected by cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial deformities get access to the medical care they need and deserve. It shouldn’t matter where you are born whether you can get access to safe medical care.
Globally, a baby is born with cleft lip and/or cleft palate every 3 minutes launching the family into a world of uncertainty and fear. When left untreated, cleft lip and palate can lead to serious health issues, hardships and social isolation, and without surgery as many as 9 out of 10 children born with cleft conditions could die.
Operation Smile mobilizes a world of generous hearts to heal children’s smiles and transform lives across the globe. With help from donors, medical volunteers and corporate partners, Operation Smile Canada transforms lives with surgeries that can take as little as 45 minutes and cost as little as $240. We can do this in part because Operation Smile's network of selfless medical professionals volunteer, travelling to remote locations, working tirelessly during their vacations.
To celebrate my new position, I am launching my campaign early as I know together we can create momentum and change lives. Our goal is ambitious... to deliver 2020 new smiles @ $240 each for a total of $484,800 raised by the Longest Day of Smiles!
Thank you in advance. Your kindness will bring hope and deliver smiles across the miles, and what's better than spreading smiles, the universal sign of happiness! Together, we will visibly change lives!
Thank you, Hilary
p.s. We are recruiting clubs, teams, businesses, schools, you name it, to join the Longest Day of Smiles movement and raise funds and awareness in loads of creative ways. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how you and your gang can create even more momentum for the children we serve!!!
