Operation Smile

Ledyard's Operation Smile club raises money for the world-wide non-profit Operation Smile organization, which performs surgeries on children with facial deformities, such as cleft palate and cleft lip, in third world countries. These deformities often prevent children from eating, breathing, and talking properly, and can even be fatal. Often, the deformities prevent individuals from going to school, getting married, or finding employment, due to the social stigma associated with facial malformations. At LHS, club members have lots of fun hosting fundraisers and doing other club-related activities such as making t-shirts and eating ice cream. Join Operation Smile to have a great time while changing the world. For more information, contact the club adviser at driley@ledyard.net or the club president at alex_houdeshell@yahoo.com.
