Lilly Pulitzer Loves Operation Smile

Posted on July 21, 2009 in More Fun by | 5 comments

Since Operation Smile was founded in Norfolk, VA in 1982 they have helped over 130,000 children across the globe. They work in over 51 countries helping children born with cleft lips and other facial deformities. There are over 500 student organizations across the U.S. building awareness and fundraising in American schools. The types of facial deformities they work with not only affect the physical health of these children but they greatly affect their ability to partake in childhood activities and friendships. We are proudly partnering with Operation Smile for our in-store event at 1020 Madison Avenue tomorrow night from 6-8pm. 10% of proceeds will be donated from sales both Wednesday and Thursday (if you are unable to attend the event). Come mingle and meet some great New Yorkers involved with this amazing organization. Click here to learn more on their website.

Operation Smile is such a FABULOUS organization! They truly help those that need help in the most. When we lived in Honduras we would have Operation Smile doctors come and stay with us. They would go out into the very poorest areas and help children!

Wow, I actually have never heard of Operation Smile until this article, and I’m so glad I saw the video! I’m going to boarding school soon and I’m thrilled at the charity prospects and ideas I intend to pursue! If there isn’t already a club (it’s my first year), trust me when I say there will be one very soon. I agree with Hopsy, this is a wonderful organization.

I have worked for this organization for 5 years now and absolutely LOVE it, it truly does help change not only the lives of the children but also those of the volunteers. If you would like more information on how to start a club you can visit,
Thanks Lily!
