A few weeks ago, I received an e-mail from my bloggy friend, Allison, inviting me to be a guest blogger over at her place. We met virtually through our mutual blog designer, and hit it off once we discovered a mutual love for Dr. Pepper. (Anybody that loves Dr. Pepper has to be a great person, right?) When McDaddy was deployed, I was suprised to receive a goody box filled with items from the Dr. Pepper museum in Texas (where she lives) to cheer me up (and it worked!). I was humbled that she took the time to let me know she was thinking of us. Each year, we exchange Christmas cards (and pictures and letters) and if I am ever in Texas again, meeting Allison is on my list.
Each year Allison hosts a project on her blog benefitting two charities that are near and dear to her heart. You see, she and her son Will have both had cleft-palate surgery. This year, I am honored to be a part of her annual Project Smile.
Twenty years ago, I received a new smile too, and I would love it if you’d go over and read my post, and then share about something that makes you smile. Your comment will cost you nothing, but will help a child get a new smile.
Here’s how Project Smile works:
Go over to her blog, Leave a comment on my post (AND any posts dated May 24 through June 24, 2012, the first anniversary of her son, Will’s cleft palate surgery). For every comment received, (you may only leave one comment per post!) Allison will personally donate $1.00 to both Operation Smile and Smile Train. It costs you nothing yet gives something that is priceless! Feel free to spread the word, share the link on FB, tell your friends, and by doing so, you are sharing a smile, literally and figuratively!
Now, what are you waiting for? Get over there!
