Our bloggers’ Smile-a-Thon technically ended last Saturday. But, fortunately, Share a Smile doesn’t have to be over. I see spontaneous smileys more often than I ever did, and anyone can still upload spontaneous smileys to the Spontaneous Smiley website, raising $1 per smiley photo to help Operation Smile.
We didn’t reach our goal of 5 operations to correct cleft palate, cleft lip, and facial deformities in children around the world. But we did raise enough money for about 1½ surgeries … and every bit helps!
If you’d like to help the Operation Smile crusade, you can search for spontaneous smileys at any age. I have a post with lots of smiley-inspired activities for kids: Go on a Smile Hunt with Your Child. There’s more smiley fun for kids with Smiley Face Crafts by Amanda at Crafts~N~Things for Kids. And check out the Spontaneous Smiley posts by Elizabeth at Broken Treasures. Elizabeth organized our bloggers’ ShareASmile Project and has more kid-related smiley fun!
Before I leave the Smile-a-Thon, I must have a finale. And what better than some smile inspiration from Annie!
