Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft lip or a cleft palate. A child with a cleft has twice the odds of dying before their first birthday. Those who survive may have difficulty eating, speaking, hearing or breathing properly. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford the surgeries they need to live a productive life.

That's where Operation Smile comes in as the largest volunteer-based medical charity providing free cleft surgeries. Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided over 220,000 free surgeries for children and young adults. Their work creates a lasting global impact. Operation Smile trains local doctors in developing countries and strengthens healthcare systems so more children in some of the poorest areas in the world can be treated.

The Nerd Machine believes that every child deserves access to safe, quality surgical care and is thrilled to return as the Title Sponsor of Operation Smile's 2015 Celebrity Ski & Smile Challenge in Park City. In as little as 45 minutes, one cleft lip surgery can change a child's life forever. With your help, how many lives can we change tomorrow?

Together, We Can Change Lives

Operation Smile mobilizes a world of generous hearts to heal children’s smiles and transform lives across the globe. Operation Smile’s network of volunteers works worldwide to repair childhood facial deformities including cleft lips and cleft palates.

We hope you'll help us bring hope and new smiles to children suffering from facial deformities.

This cause is so beautiful to me and pretty personal. Day to day, I work at an orthodontics office we, of course, specialize with braces but we work with a lot of children and teens with cleft lip and palate and i have seen plenty of cases that are just heart breaking. So i just wanted to say that thanks to the nerdmachine i found out about the charity and i will be donating to you guys and i thank you guys so much for what you guys have been doing.

It is amazing to be in a position to see my favorite actors/actresses while donating to charity at the same time. Helping kids has always been a passion and operation smiles offers an amazing opportunity to help an excellent cause.

I discovered your Youtube Channel this weekend. I think its wonderful. I cannot travel much and watching the YouTube Channel is a great way for me to experience SDCC. Furthermore, thank you for working with operationsSmile to my attention, it really is a wonderful cause.
Thank you for all your hard work!
Big Fan of Zack Levi ("Chuck) and the concept of the Nerd Machine.

I just want to say I'm a huge supporter of all the people who chose to give their time and effort at Nerd HQ to support Operation Smile. It's such a great cause and you can see from the videos how much work it is and - conversely - how much fun it is. If I didn't live in the UK I'd be there supporting in person.
I've finally been nominated for the ALS ice-bucket challenge - which is a great cause - but as they have raised so much more than they could have hoped for, I've chosen to support a fundraising effort which is still working towards it's target. $20 may be a drop in the ocean, but hopefully it can help put a smile on a child's face the way your efforts - and many buckets of ice poured over people online - have on ours

I wanted to say thank you for caring about these children. My daughter was born with cleft lip 30 odd years ago. All the rest of the family was horrified, but as a registered nurse I had cared for babies with worse deformities and knew what needed to be done. Thankfully our insurance paid the whole bill. I must say that it was much harder emotionally because this was MY baby. It gave me a truly different perspective in how I later would help other parents going through what I had gone through. Again, thank you so much for caring, for helping so passionately.
