I raised over $6,000.00 for the Smile Train, and well over 30 plus donors to this awesome organziation. I did this fundraising effort in conjunction with my Ironman that I completed in Los Cabos Mexico on March 30, 2014. The money I raised will directly impact 24 children who will receive free surgery to fix thier cleft palet. That is 24 lives that are positively changed!!

This is an oranization that I am very passionate about, and how such a small amount of money can go such a long way. I am so happy that I was able to tie The Smile Train in directly with a huge event in my life. I am so excited about raising thousands of dollars more fro the Smile Train.

Please keep your donations comin to The Smile Train

They put our organization through a laborious application process for a $5,000 grant and then, two months later, decided that they did not want to fund any such programs. A more professional organization would have made this operational decision before the grant deadline or would have honored those that applied and then eliminated the program in the next cycle.

After some not inconsiderable reseach a few years ago on where one's charity could make the most difference "for the buck", Smile Train came out well ahead of anything else. Not only in terms of all donated funds ending up where they should, but in terms of the impact on pimproving the quality of people's lives per $. I have been an avid supported evr since and intend on increasing this through wider corporate engagement. I have absolutely no reservations in commending what Smile Train is doing, how it is doing it and the dedication and vision it reflects. If only governments and supra-national organisations had the humility to learn from the model being applied here, the world could both easily become a much better place, and could do so without the need for much more additional funding.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

That every time I think of how I have and am contributing, I know it has made a real difference. It makes me think of new ways in which I could do more. The smiles created -- theirs and mine -- are one of the best feelings I have in my life. Try it!
