This Saturday the whole team came together to collect money for a fantastic cause – Operation Smile. Operation Smile is a non-profit that raises money for surgeries for children born with cleft lip or cleft palate. Just $240 covers the cost of a surgery to give a child a brand new smile. The participating surgeons operate pro bono so all the money raised goes straight to helping a child in need. Operation Smile performs surgeries locally and all over the world to help children from every background and country.
Our team donned blue Operation Smile t-shirts and roamed CMAfest in downtown Nashville collecting donations. Ninety degree heat and scattered showers didn’t stop us from raising over $700 for Operation Smile in just a few hours! Also important was how we raised awareness of Operation Smile in Nashville just by wearing their logo and talking to everyone we encountered about the important work the organization is doing all over the world.
