New Operation Smile Fundraiser

We love supporting Operation Smile™ here at CTMH.

Operation Smile™ is a worldwide organization that provides free, life-changing surgery that repairs smiles and reshapes lives, one child at a time. Since 2008, Close To My Heart has provided support to change the lives of over 1,500 children and their families. Each surgery is rather quick, usually 30-40 minutes to change these little lives.

Last night, after a yummy team dinner at Miss India,  I had the privilege of attending a fabulous training and premiere night at Brisbane's Mercure Hotel.
Yummy team dinner.
Waiting for the night to start!
During the evening, the Chief Communications Officer Monica Wihongi, shared more about her recent trip with Operation Smile™ to Chiapas, Mexico.
Monica and I have an annual selfie tradition, this is the start of our 3rd year!
On this same mission was the actress Kate Walsh (from Grey's Anatomy and other shows). Kate posted this video about her experience on this mission. Watch and see the utter joy on the parents faces as they see their child with their smiles repaired and lives improved!

Starting in September at my Mystery Scrapbooking workshop, it is my goal for my studio to raise $600 for Operation Smile by Christmas. That's enough to change two little lives for the better. You can find out more about this important work here.

There's many ways you can help support Operation Smile.
One way you can help is by purchasing a tshirt. $10 from each shirt goes straight to Operation Smile.
Another way is when you place an order on my website, you can make a donation. You can also donate at any of my studio workshops.
From September 5, you can also purchase an exclusive Base & Bling necklace for $25.

I'm quite excited for this project. I can't wait to email our Australian corporate office and let them know that my studio has helped change two lives (or more)! Will you join with me and help this organization change children's lives?
