I'm so excited to announce our 2nd annual Headshots for Humanity charity fundraiser to benefit Operation Smile – a global medical nonprofit organization that provides free surgeries for children around the world born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. I know that many of you are already familiar with Operation Smile and you have seen the incredible work that they do. You've seen the miracles and the life-changing surgeries; the tears of joy rolling down the faces of the parents who once thought that there would never be any hope for their babies.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate – and many families can't afford the surgery they desperately need; or worse yet, they aren't even aware that such a surgery can even be performed. In many places, children with cleft conditions are abandoned or abused. Many times they have trouble eating and drinking and can struggle to survive. Those that do can face a lifetime of shame and torment.
They need our help! So we've created a fun, easy way to contribute to the cause. We invite you to come on out to the Holiday Inn Express in Belleville (46194 N. I-9 Service Drive), on Saturday, May 18, 2019, between 10:00am and 2:00pm. For your $24.00 donation or more, you will receive a free professional headshot or portrait. Your headshot can be used on your Linkedin profile, your Facebook page, your resume/CV or your company website. Or, if you prefer, register with a friend, spouse, child or parent and have your portrait taken together!
100% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Operation Smile. Participants will also enjoy refreshments, snacks, raffles, prizes, networking opportunities and the joy of knowing that they have made a very large difference in at least one child's life!
As an exciting new addition to this year's event, Moving the Mitten Real Estate Group will be covering the cost of the $24 donation for all veterans transitioning military personnel. This is just one way that we can honor your service and provide you with a professional portrait as a thank you. Use your portrait for personal use (share with family/friends), professional use (LinkedIn or other social media profile photo, networking, marketing materials, website, business card, etc).
Ladies, while you're here, be sure to stop by and visit with our resident makeup artist for a "mini" makeover and get a touch-up for anything you like prior to your photo-shoot!
If you are unavailable to join us on May 18th, please consider making a direct donation today, through this funding campaign site. For as little as $240 and in as few as 45 minutes, Operation Smile is able to provide one life-changing surgery – and renewed hope – for children around the world. Please, consider making your tax-deductible gift today and helping to make a significant difference in the life of a child in need!
