Review for Smile Train, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!
