About World Smile Day®
World Smile Day® is a global celebration of all that makes us smile — and here at Smile Train, nothing makes us smile more than bringing life-changing cleft care to children in need. Every day, 540 babies around the world are born with a cleft, a serious health condition with potentially life-threatening complications such as difficulty eating, breathing, hearing, and speaking.
But we have a cure. With your support, Smile Train can sponsor the training, funding, and resources that empower local medical professionals in 70+ countries to provide lifesaving cleft surgeries and other essential treatment 100%-free in their own communities 365 days a year, strengthening local health systems and spreading smiles.
This World Smile Day®, we encourage you to join us in bringing smiles and hope around the world by donating any amount you can to help these babies in desperate need of care, whether it’s $5.40, $54, or $540, every dollar means the world to families in need.
