Miss Universe Operation Smile

How wonderful!!

The Miss Universe Organization has announced a partnership with Operation Smile, an organization that helps children with cleft palates!

The collaboration is a long-term global initiative providing opportunities for reigning titleholders in developing countries where Operation Smile has a presence to become involved in Operation Smile programs. The Miss Universe Organization is committed to empowering women by forging relationships with nonprofit organizations and utilizing its international grassroots infrastructure to garner attention for philanthropic causes.

Cleft conditions are so sad, and are extremely common. In fact:

Every 3 minutes, a child is born with a cleft condition. One in 10 children born with a cleft dies before their first birthday. Children born with clefts are often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. These children are often shunned in their own communities. With the help of medical volunteers and generous supporters, Operation Smile provides free reconstructive surgery for children around the world to heal their smiles and transform their lives.

This is such a good cause, and we're so happy to hear that the MUO is going to be helping out! With both organizations' reaches, hopefully a lot more kids can be helped!
