Set at two thousand dollars, Avi Weisfogel has begun to raise funds for the popular Operation Smile program. Utilizing GoFundMe as the fundraiser platform, Weisfogel supports Operation Smile’s goal to provide free surgical procedures on an international level for cleft palates, cleft lips and other deformities. The ultimate goal is to provide these children with a more confident, and happier future. While these procedures can be simple to complete here in the United States, other countries don’t have the facilities or the professionals to help.
In a recent interview, Avi Weisfogel was quoted as saying: “Operation Smile believes that every child deserves exceptional surgical care and that all children deserve to be treated as if they were our own. The organization wants to ensure that every child knows no matter what life throws at them, they will always have hope.” Many people all across the world believe in what Operation Smile is trying to accomplish and support this cause. Not every child in the world has access to medical care let alone surgical procedures to assist with something like a cleft palette. The more money raised equals more children helped.
Operation Smile is always shooting to reach more and more children in as many impoverished nations as possible. To date, over 220,000 surgical procedures have been provided, free of charge, by Operation Smile. Volunteers are currently working in over 80 different countries all across the world. Avi Weisfogel hopes to provide just a little bit extra money to the organization in order to further support their mission and goals.
