Make Me Smile!


On April 21st, we will be participating in the 2012 Celebration of Smiles, a fundraiser to benefit Operation Smiles. Founded in 1982, Operation Smile treats children around the world who suffer with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities. Every year, more than 100,000 children are born with a facial deformity in Operation Smile’s 26 partner countries. I couldn’t believe that!

On Saturday the 21st, I will be setting up at The Westwood School’s high school campus to photograph friends, clients or anyone else who wants to help.

Here’s how it works…

For a minimum donation of $24, I will create a fun headshot of you and your fabulous smile! I’ll give you a retouched file that you can share on Facebook, email or whatever you want. It costs Operation Smile $240 to perform one surgery, so for every ten people we photograph, we can fix one smile. How cool is that?

    A perfect smile can light up a room or cause an instant friendship with a total stranger. It makes a person appear approachable and will even put a smile on a young child’s face.
