For every ice cream smile photo captured and uploaded on Edy's Facebook page, $5 will be donated to Operation Smile up to $125,000. Check out some slow churned light ice cream smiles here!
The goal is to deliver 500 cleft surgeries to children in need. Every 3 minutes, a child is born with a cleft, leaving them unable to eat, speak, socialize, or smile. Living a normal life is not an option for them within their communities.
Operation Smile is an international children's charity that was founded in 1982. They have a presence in 60 countries and have provided 200,000 free surgeries for children who are born with cleft lips, palates, and other facial deformities.
Edy's mission has always been to inspire a smile and I'd say they have accomplished more than that this summer! With only a few weeks left of this campaign, I encourage you to share this with your colleagues and patients! From ice cream scoops to smiles, many children's lives will be changed forever and that is more than is a "Reason to Smile"!
