The McLean SLC has chosen the Smile Train Charity to support this year. Smile Train is a charity that travels to many developing countries in the world to perform surgeries on children born with a “Cleft Lip or Cleft Palate”. Being born with this disease has made it very hard for children to live happily. They are made fun of and teased everyday! Throughout the 2011-2012 school year, our school will be doing many small fundraisers to raise money for Smile Train. If our school can raise just $250, we can change one child’s life forever!
We have chosen this charity because the opportunity to save a child’s life…is much too big to pass up. Millions of children are born with this disease every year, but McLean School is very proud to help change a child’s life.
