Since 2010, I have been proud to support international medical charity Operation Smile with my family. We were introduced to Operation Smile through my children's surgeon Dr. Ronald Zuker. My children were born with a rare medical condition called facial paralysis, through life changing transplant surgeries, they were able to smile. When I created The Perfect Provenance, I knew that supporting this amazing charity would be a wonderful opportunity to help children around the world. Every product within The Smile Collection will donate a portion of proceeds to Operation Smile.
About Operation Smile -- Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that performs safe, effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, and delivers postoperative and ongoing medical therapies to children in low and middle income countries around the world. In 2013, my husband Mat, son Zachary and best friend Kathy Van Zeeland, had the priviledge of going on our first medical mission to David, Panama to personally hand out bears to children and families. My husband and I were honored with the Founders Circle Award in 2014.
