Smile Train is celebrating this Christmas by helping even more children around the world smile and live happier, healthier lives.

In place of asking for presents this Christmas, Smile Train is asking people to #GiveSmiles instead.

Smile Train aims to raise enough funds to #GiveSmiles to an extra 2,017 children with clefts by the end of the year. This year we have a very special #givingtuesday-specific goal: we want to raise funds for 33 new smiles for the day.

“Through the campaign launching on #givingtuesday and our holiday initiatives, we hope to mobilize supporters, new and old, to help give new smiles to children in need all over the world,” said Susannah Schaefer, CEO, Smile Train.

In addition, as a part of the campaign, there will be a number of Smile Train celebrity ambassadors, corporate partners and community fundraisers participating in various fundraising activities around the world in honour of this very important day of giving back.
