A monumental Thank You to everyone who came out to our shows this past month, supporting both comedy and a cause: Help change the world one smile at a time. www.smiletrain.org.
Because of your kindness, we raised nearly $250, and with the promise that Serving Up Comedy would match dollar for dollar, we rounded it up to $500 that will go to The Smile Train. Your wanting to give has made possible two complete surgeries for children with a cleft lip. Upon the completion of their operations, for all the rest of their lives they will smile with genuine happiness. And their happiness will touch the lives of the hundreds if not thousands of people who enter their lives. Probably we will never meet the children whose lives you’ve changed. But know that they are changed, and only to the better.
As a Thank You, come out to our next show and let us say Thank You in person. You deserve laughter and goodness in your lives. Allow Serving Up Comedy and The Warehouse to take care of you, if only for a couple hours, while we bring you a stellar show and kick off our next charity, 4PAWS4PATRIOTS.
Laughter is necessary. Plain and simple. It releases healthy endorphins into your system, it boosts your immunity, it just makes for feel good. Have you ever laughed so hard, you cried? What a great feeling that is. And one of the most beautiful things anyone can see in this world is a child smiling or laughing with joyous abandonment. But what if the very thing that brings you down, causes you unhappiness, IS your very smile. For that reason, Serving Up Comedy has decided to make their debut charity The Smile Train.
Today, millions of children in developing countries are suffering with cleft lips and palates. Condemned to a lifetime of malnutrition, shame and isolation.
The biggest tragedy is that virtually all of these children could be helped and their clefts repaired. That is the mission of The Smile Train. They empower local surgeons in developing countries to provide this life-changing free cleft surgery which takes but a few hours and costs as little as $250. It gives desperate children not just a new smile—but a new life.
The Smile Train will deliver free cleft surgery to more than 25,000 children each year, all over the world. From Asia to Africa, from South America to Russia, The Smile Train helps children who have no place else to turn.
From Thursday, July 14th, and all shows to Thursday, Aug. 11th, all money dropped into our Donation Box will go to The Smile Train. Help change the world one smile at a time. www.smiletrain.org.
