Christmas in July: Making Smiles Brighter with Operation Smile

Share Button

We at Balsam Hill are firm believers in giving back to those in need, not just during the holidays, but even after the season. This year, we have chosen Operation Smile as our non-profit partner for our Christmas in July campaign.

A child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate every three minutes. Children with cleft conditions often experience trouble feeding, difficulties with speech and social isolation. Operation Smile is an international organization founded in 1982 that seeks to provide free surgeries to children with facial deformities, giving them brighter smiles and brighter futures.

We invite you to join us in supporting Operation Smile! Simply visit our official Facebook page and share your favorite memory of helping others at Christmas on our Christmas in July post. For each comment, Balsam Hill will donate $1 to Operation Smile. Tag one of your friends in your comment and we will donate an additional $1 to support surgeries.

This fundraising campaign will go a long way in assisting Operation Smile in their vision of giving children around the world a better future. Share your heartwarming story and help out a child in need today.
