One of the ways to celebrate is to spread awareness and donate to Smile Train, the largest cleft charity in the world. Millions of children suffer from eating, breathing and speaking difficulties due to damaged clefts. All they need is a simple procedure that delivers immediate results. Smile Train devotes its efforts to provide education and funding in developing countries so that doctors can offer free cleft repair surgery in local communities.
You can participate by posting a picture of you and your children smiling on Instagram using the hashtag #SmileTrainWSD to spread the word. Here are some of our favorites!
