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

Rating: 5 stars  

Free to Smile helps children around the world in underserved areas with cleft lip and palate repair surgeries. You can learn that in 5 seconds on their website. What you can't ever discern from a website is the visceral, heart-filling experience of watching a parent see their baby for the first time after surgery... see them lay eyes on their sweet baby smile a healed smile. They dream with their whole hearts for the world to see their children as they see them: beautiful, whole, lovely. With Free to Smile's help, the surgery can help the world see what the parents see. And it's about so much more than appearance. With the surgeries, children have improved speech, nutrition, educational opportunity, social experiences, job opportunities, etc. Free to Smile's work has changed thousands of lives, including mine. Thank you, Free to Smile!

Review for Drop in The Bucket, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Drop in the Bucket is the most outstanding non-profit organization I have ever encountered. The Director, Stacey Travis, is passionate about the cause, compassionate beyond belief, and a very careful steward of the organization's resources. I had the good fortune to witness Drop's outstanding results first-hand in Uganda in July, 2014, and I was utterly impressed. They have helped so many people, especially children, with the most basic need of human existence: water. Thank you, Drop in the Bucket, for your tireless efforts to solving this critical need!

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered with Free to Smile in February, 2014 as a translator in Guatemala. What an amazing experience and organization. Free to Smile was well organized, communicated well, and took great care of patients, families, and volunteers. Being able to help the children and their families was one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. Thank you Free to Smile for your work and for allowing me to be a small part of it!
