Entering its seventh year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. In celebration of the day and the season of giving, Smile Train, the world’s largest cleft organization, is kicking off their annual ‘Give Smiles’ campaign. 


A new organization, Face Equality International, being launched today is a unique alliance of charities and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) which want to see the campaign for ‘face equality’ become a global movement. 


From October 21-22, Smile Train, the world’s largest cleft organization, celebrated its 100,000th cleft surgery milestone in Africa with a number of different activities planned each day. The celebration took place in Nairobi with Smile Train’s President and CEO Susannah Schaefer and the organization’s local staff, partners, medical professionals, and corporate donors from across the continent who have all made the milestone possible.


Today people all over the world celebrate World Smile Day® (WSD), a day devoted to smiles and acts of kindness. 


The event will take place during the 73rd UN General Assembly and will feature Smile Train’s Vice President and Regional Director of Africa, as well as organization Ambassador Miss Universe 2017.
