As a Smile Train High School Student Ambassador, I have decided to fundraise for Smile Train to help provide smiles to children in need. Smile Train is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate.
Cleft palate disproportionately affects those least likely to be able to seek treatment for it. If left untreated, a cleft palate causes difficulties throughout an individual's whole life. Many children with clefts around the world live in isolation, but more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing, hearing, and speaking. Cleft surgery is a safe, permanent solution with an immediate impact. With just $250, an individual's life trajectory can be changed dramatically by having the necessary surgery to fix cleft palate .Smile Train’s sustainable model provides training, funding, and resources to empower local doctors in 70+ countries to provide these lifesaving surgeries and other essential cleft care 100%-free, in their own communities.
Smile Train's Student Ambassadors are a group of high school students passionate about making a difference. Learn more at smiletrain.org/get-involved/students/ambassadors or feel free to contact me know if you would like to learn more or have any questions about.
Thank you for supporting my High School Student Ambassador fundraiser – together we can change the world one smile at a time!
