Give a child a smile…she will grow it and give it right back to you.
TinyEYE is raising funds to help Operation Smile. Our goal is to grow over 40 smiles by giving Operation Smile $10 000 by December 31, 2010. Watch our donations grow at http://support.operationsmile.org/goto/TinyEYE.
TinyEYE makes a positive difference in children’s lives by connecting them with specialized speech-language pathologists. Our therapists serve children around the world by meeting with them, educators, and caregivers via TinyEYE’s on-line therapy office. Through this on-line connection, children enjoy quality speech therapy services regardless of where they live. We help children to understand what they hear, to speak so that others understand them, and to use their voice to share their ideas; their wishes; their stories. In addition to providing on-line therapy and supervision services, TinyEYE’s outreach team visits communities to complete assessments and support programming needs.
TinyEYE believes in children. Because we understand the heart of a child, we care so much that we contribute to its contentment. Because we understand the fragile self-concept of a child, we care so much that we contribute to building self-esteem. And because we understand the value of our service, we care so much about contributing in a way that is relevant and important to the life of each child. We grow smiles, mend spirits, and engage children in their lives…just like Operation Smile.
Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe. Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft condition. A cleft is an opening in the lip, the roof of the mouth or the soft tissue in the back of the mouth. Untreated, it often leaves a child unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places these children are shunned and rejected. In too many cases, parents cannot afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a normal life.
Thanks to the generosity and spirit of volunteerism shown by supporters, Operation Smile heals thousands of children per year and, today, more than 135,000 girls and boys have a new chance at a new life.
Join us in healing children’s smiles!
All the best to you,
