Every month I see the advertisement for a charitable organization called Smile Train in one of the magazines I read.† The organization provides surgery to children who have been born with birth defects and cleft palate.† Let’s face it:† growing up with facial disfigurement of any kind must be difficult.† Children (and adults for that matter) can be cruel.† It seems to me that a simple surgical procedure for many of these children may transform the way they are treated and possibly the way they feel about themselves.† I keep thinking that I’d like to donate to this organization so today’s the day.
If you have a soft spot in your heart for a charitable organization, consider donating to them.† It doesn’t have to be money if you don’t have much.† You can also donate your time, some furniture or clothing you’re not using, or something completely different.† If you have ideas, please share them with other Kindness Revolution participants below.
