Review for Free to Smile Foundation Inc, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My time is my most valuable commodity. I can think of nothing I enjoy more than spending quality time with family and friends creating memories I will have for the rest of my life. That being said, for 3-4 weeks each year I travel abroad to provide anesthesia for children in need. I have worked with a number of organizations, all of which I thought were very productive. Ultimately I found a home with Free to Smile. Free to Smile and their partners work tirelessly to provide the best care available for children with cleft lips and palates. FTS allows me to utilize my talents to give families in need an improved quality of life, and children with clefts the chance to lead a normal life.

Review for Free to Smile Foundation Inc, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered on every surgical trip Free to Smile has organized since 2013. Our goal on each of these trips has been to provide excellent medical care for children in need. Each of these children deserves the best chance at a happy, fulfilling life. Our incredible volunteers come together under challenging conditions to make this happen. I feel lucky to have found Free to Smile, and I am honored to donate my time, skills and dollars to help Free to Smile provide care for these children.

Review for Free to Smile Foundation Inc, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Free to Smile is a tremendous organization. I have volunteered numerous times with other groups and have had great experiences. However, my last trip to Guatemala with Free to Smile was something special. I have never seen a group come together so well and accomplish so much. The Free to Smile leadership is focused, kind, and enthusiastic. They are constantly trying to improve the superb care they already deliver. Their focus on helping children in need, and the sacrifices they make to do this are inspiring. I am grateful to be a part of this organization.
