Smile Student Association at IU:
Students at Indiana University working together to raise money for the efforts of Operation Smile. Our goal for 2010 is to sponsor at least 5 surgeries (each costs $240). We plan to raise money from a silent auction in February as well as from generous donations from family, friends, and local businesses. If you want to get involved or find out more, come to the next call out meeting (listed under announcements to the right!) or check out www.operationsmile.com to see how you can help out our student team!
Operation Smile is a non-profit volunteer medical services organization providing free reconstructive surgery to children and young adults in 24 developing countries and the United States who suffer with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities. Since 1982, Operation Smile volunteers have medically treated more than 98,000 children and young adults.
Some of Operation Smile's partner countries include: Bolivia, Brazil, Jordan, Cambodia, China, India, Jordan, Kenya, Morocco, Nicaragua, Paraguay and Panama
Medical professionals from around the world come together to volunteer with Operation Smile. Each mission team includes plastic surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, a dentist, speech pathologist, child life specialist and other professionals.
Our spring callout meeting is Wednesday January 25 at 8:00pm in the Persimmon Room in the Union!
We'll be getting our t-shirts!
This club is an amazing way to truly make a difference in a child's life. We hope to see you there.
