Help The Smile Train

The Smile Train is a charity that helps kids that have cleft lips and cleft palates. Children that have clefts can't eat right and also have difficulty talking. People call them bad names like Freak. That is not nice at all. But after the surgery that Smile Train gives them that costs only $250, the people who called the kids bad names think they are entirely different kids.

If they didn't get that surgery they wouldn't be able to go to school, get jobs or get food or sometimes their families abandon them.

Here is a picture about a girl who got an operation from Smile Train. The operation really changes the way they look and here you will be able to see that.

I will also show you a video.

I'm going to give money to Smile Train so can you give some money to them also. It would be nice if you would but you don't have to if you don't want to.

Here's where you can donate the money--Smile Train.

Hi KC,
This is a wonderful way of helping people. You are very thoughtful.

I tried to post a comment re: your room, but I don't think it went through.

Your video is cool! It will be a really nice room when completed.

Hi Casey,
Thanks for sharing the information about Smile Train, I might not have know how to help without you. How is your room looking, are you finished with your big remodelling project? I am looking forward to seeing pictures.

Hey Casey,
That's really nice that you are doing that. It shows that God is giving you a heart of compassion for others. Hope school and everything is going well. Sorry I haven't written in a while, but we're praying for you.
Big hugs,
Aunt Joyce
