Celebration of Smiles
We thought you would want to know about a very special promotion we will be participating in with an elite group of photographers from around the country. On Saturday April 23, we will participate in “Celebration of Smiles Day” a wonderful opportunity for you to update individual portraits of your family members and at the same time support the work of Operation Smile, which treats children around the world who suffer with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.
Along with other participating members of Professional Photographers of America (PPA), we have pledged to donate 100% of each $24 donation made to PPA Charities, which has chosen Operation Smile as its charitable partner.
Recording the smiles of children and their families is our greatest pleasure. That’s why we believe so strongly in the work of Operation Smile. Each year this incredible organization of more than 5,000 volunteer doctors, nurses, dentists, and specialized health care professionals, perform free reconstructive surgeries for children suffering with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.
Every three minutes a child somewhere in the world is born with a facial deformity. One in ten will not survive to see their first birthday. Those who do survive often live in isolation and pain. More than 100,000 children are born with a facial deformity each year in Operation Smile’s 26 partner countries. Tens of thousands remain untreated.
We hope you will join with us in helping to make this vital work possible. As always . . . we look forward to creating some truly wonderful portraits of you or your family members.
Sweet Signatures, a creator of gourmet desserts for any occasion, is hosting the event in their shop and store at 22446 Davis Drive, Suite 174, Sterling, Virginia 20164. Coffee, pastries and chocolates will be available in their inviting cafe. You might just have to bring some home with you too!
