The Smile Train is focused on solving cleft lip and palate deformaties. Clefts are a major problem in developing countries where there are millions of children who are suffering with unrepaired clefts. Most cannot eat or speak properly. Aren't allowed to attend school or hold a job. And face very difficult lives filled with shame and isolation, pain and heartache. The good news is every single child with a cleft can be helped with surgery that costs as little as $250 and takes as little as 45 minutes.
This is our mission:
- To provide free cleft surgery for millions of poor children in developing countries.
- To provide free cleft-related training for doctors and medical professionals.
Until there are no more children who need help and we have eradicated the issues of cleft palettes.

St. Jude is a place where many doctors send some of their sickest patients and toughest cases. A place where cutting-edge research and revolutionary discoveries happen every day.

Displaced Orphans International is a registered 501c(3) non-profit foundation started by a small group of Christians in Washington State who are intimately familiar with the critical problems facing displaced orphans on the borders of Thailand.
The board members of DOI are all employed individuals who have been led by personal beliefs to assist the forgotten children in this area of the world. The children are not recognized by any national organization as refugees and hence receive little or no aid.

For people with intellectual disabilities, Special Olympics is often the only place where they have an opportunity to participate in their communities and develop belief in themselves. Many live lives of neglect and isolation, hidden away or socially excluded from full participation in schools or society. Special Olympics sports provide a gateway to empowerment, competence, acceptance and joy.
The lessons learned in Special Olympics also impact their life skills. Sports training enhances focus and gives participants a structure for learning important lessons about perseverance, endurance and setting goals. Many people are surprised to know that more than half (52 percent) of adult Special Olympics athletes in the United States are employed, half of those in competitive employment.

Friendship Adventures is an all volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of people with developmental disabilities by providing social, recreational and educational activities in a safe, engaging environment-building interpersonal skills, confidence and lifelong friendships ... one smile at a time!
The organization was founded in 2004 by Maureen Browning, who grew up close to her brother with Down syndrome and knew the value of social activities for people with disabilities. It all started with a Saturday evening dance for a group of very special people... a twirl here, a twirl there, a two step now and again, an Elvis impersonator to top it all off. From there, the concept grew ... why not provide recreational opportunities to people with developmental disabilities who might not otherwise have the chance to meet, socialize, laugh and grow together? Momentum began to gather and soon, supported by their families and loved ones, special needs friends came together for bowling, parties, cruises, sports events, leisure travel, and many other exciting memories. Out of this love and laughter grew Friendship Adventures.
