The Uplifting Power of a Smile #PowerOfASmile

A smile is contagious. What does a smile infect you of? I dare say happiness. I think everyone will agree that a smile is something that brings on contagious happiness. A smile can make or break your day as well as other people’s days. How would it make you feel if you realized far too many children don’t want to smile or can’t smile due to cleft lip and palate? It’s sad, but don’t lose hope there is an organization out there ready and willing to help more children smile! There is an organization out there that is working hard to raise funds to correct cleft lip and palate issues children are born with. Some children suffer speaking, breathing and eating problems with cleft lip and palate as well, this wouldn’t make anyone wish to smile even if they could, right?! Smile Train is here to help bring more smiles in their #PowerOfASmile campaign.
