My experiences witnessing the barriers to dental care motivated me to become involved with the organization Smile Train. I have fundraised for treatment for children with clefts and provided literacy to the community about cleft conditions. My involvement with this organization not only fulfilled me deeply, but also gave me a background in oral and maxillofacial terminology while also improving my communication and teamwork skills. This experience will inevitably prepare me for a career as a dentist and help me reduce health-care disparities.
It's a charity that makes a difference! No other charity has so many dedicated volunteers worldwide.
What a wonderful way to remember a loved one who has passed by putting a beautiful smile on a child's face...
This charity has a very successful record while keeping its overhead costs low. A simple operation changes a child's life completely. A great cause to give to....
Can't explain it. there's lots of charities to give to, but the pictures of those kids just get to me.
Also, Smile Train has an excellent reputation as to delivering the goods
Although we make a modest living as a military family we have traveled the world and have seen first hand that there are less fortunate ones. So we have chosen to share our blessings with several worthy organization such as yours. Thank you for all you do. God Bless
I have seen the work done for children all over the world on TV and it is such a small thing and yet it is so crucial to a child's development. Thank you to all the doctors and nurses, and support personnel that makes this happen.
Fantastic work by dedicated doctors. Monies are used for the intended purpose, not fundraising profits.
We certainly endorse Smile Train's mission. Seeing the "before and after" photos was enough to convince us of the worthiness of our giving, and this same sort of photo "evidence" helps sustain our very positive attitude.
I have visited Smile Train hospitals in different parts of the world. The people that work with Smile Train are some of the best people I have ever met. You can see the warmth and love In all of the good that they do. Please help and donate today!
I have donated on several occasions and hope what I give will be able to help children that need help.
This is an outstanding charity. They do so much for children who will benefit from cleft lip and palate surgery!
Smile Train changes the lives of everyone they help in such a significant way at an extremely reasonable donation. It's so easy to help though them as they use the donations so effectively.
This is a wonderful service for children in great need around the world. What a terrible burden to have to grow up with such a deformity that isolates one and makes it terribly difficult to get proper nutrition. What I also appreciate is that the staff train people in the local country to do the procedures involved.
I believe there is power and strength in a smile. It's one way for a person to shine their unique and beautiful light! With this organization and the help of generous donors, more children will be able to step confidently into their personal power.
I've donated to Smile Train for many years. I am very proud of all the work and surgeries that they have done. I love that so many doctors and nurses volunteer their valuable time and Smile Train takes care of not only the organization of all these surgeries, but also the financial burden of them. It allows kids who may never have a fair chance at life to be given a level playing field at a very low cost. I have also met many of the medical professionals who have served and they rant and rave about their experience.
