This weekend Rob and I spent a lot of time watching some shows on TV that made me cry. Like ugly cry because they featured amazing stories - ones where individuals just could not be knocked down. They kept getting back up and fighting.
Then I got on here to work on a partnership post which sent me to Operation Smile. And I'm close to doing the ugly cry again.. because this last weekend has just been so good. Life is good y'all.
Operation Smile is an amazing international medical charity present in over 60 countries that exists to improve the medical condition and lives of children. To date, Operation Smile has provided more than 220,000, yes THOUSAND, free surgeries for children born with facial deformities to include cleft lip and cleft palate.
How about we let that sink in...
They said it best...
"For too many families around the world, safe surgery is not an option.
At Operation Smile we believe every child deserves exceptional surgical care. We believe that all children deserve to be treated as if they were our own.
That’s what drives each and every one of us: our global network of medical professionals, who donate hundreds of thousands of hours toward the care of children around the world each year, and our supporters who are moved every day to make a difference in the lives of children they’ve never met."
How amazing is that for a Monday?
So spread the word. Donate. Or if you are a college student, RENT your textbooks.
CampusBookRentals.com donates to Operation Smile with each textbook rented. And there are so many advantages to renting... like 40-90% off bookstore prices, free shipping both ways and flexible rental times.
Any company that donates to such a worthy cause is a company I will vouch for.
