THANK YOU! We Have Saved 7 Smiles! September 16 2014, 0 Comments
Today is an exciting day at LRT headquarters!
When I started this business, I knew I wanted to give back. I enjoy working with charitable companies and knew that I wanted to help in some way... but who could I help?
I started looking for worthy causes online and was thrilled to find Operation Smile. They help kids with cleft palate and cleft lip get corrective surgery so they can lead better lives. I thought this was pretty amazing and started doing more research. I found that 1 in 10 children born with a cleft will die before their first birthday... that was astounding to me. How did I not know that? As I continued my research, I really started to fall in love with the mission of Operation Smile and it makes sense for me because I'm a photographer who makes people smile for a living. I know the importance a smile has and I am honored to be able to have the opportunity to help do my part in helping these kids! Plus the surgery costs a set amount, so you know your donation is going directly to the cause (always worries me with some charities.)
Since I posted this video earlier this year we have been saving back 5% of our sales and I am excited to announce that as of today we have saved the smiles, and potential lives, of 7 children!! Thank you all so much for supporting this new product and literally helping put smiles on the faces of some children in need.
Thank you guys! To many more smiles saved!
