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.
