GoFundMe is a crowd sourcing site used to generate income for various projects and charities. We all know that though right? Well Avi Weisfogel has decided to use it in a way that’s well new. Avi isn’t asking for money for himself, or his company, instead he is asking for money to donate to Operation Smile.
Operation Smile is an international charity that assist in providing surgery for children born with cleft palate, cleft lip, and other facial deformities. “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.” as stated by Avi in a recent interview. His belief is that every child deserves the very best care available.
The charitable organization founded in 1982 assist with providing on location medical care. While it was originally founded to operate in the Philippines it now operates on a global level. Operation Smile provides medical equipment, training, and personal through it’s location specific missions.
Avi Weisfogel hopes to raise $2000 to donate to the charity so he can do his part in helping children to have hope. Providing children with surgeries that they otherwise could not obtain does indeed create hope. Hope that when we are faced with adversity there is a way to over come it, that there are people in the world with a mission to support each other in overcoming the hurtles that our world throws at us.
