The Nerd Machine has been on a passionate mission to raise funds to heal smiles. Thanks to supporters like you, in just two years, TNM has raised over $180,000 through "Conversations for a Cause" at NerdHQ during Comic Con weekend.

Now, The Nerd Machine co-founder and Smile Ambassador, Zachary Levi, has the opportunity to join this wonderful team on a volunteer Operation Smile surgical mission in Honduras in February. He will get to experience firsthand the impact free reconstructive surgeries can have on a child, their family, and their community. changing their lives forever.

In honor of Zac Levi's birthday, I planned to make a donation to Operation Smile. Seeing how close The Nerd Machine was to meeting its fundraising goal, I just had to donate more than I'd originally planned and put you over the top! So glad I could contribute to such a worthy cause as thanks to Zac for being so kind to his fans, including those he randomly runs into on a New York street (me).

Thank you to Operation Smile for all of the work you do! I am so happy to support such an incredible organization. I haven't yet been able to attend NerdHQ, but have heard so much about your efforts from Zac Levi and his Conversations for a Cause. I was thrilled to meet him yesterday in NYC and decided that I would make that my "Smiles for Smiles" and donate to Operation Smile. Keep up the amazing work! I look forward to contributing more in the future and hearing about all of the lives you're changing! Viva la Nerdolution!

Thank you Nerd Machine for all of the amazing panels and all the hard work you put in to make this event what it is. I am so happy to be in the position to be able to donate to this worthy cause, as someone who has multiple friends who have children lucky enough to have received medical treatment for clefts I feel a personal connection to what is trying to be achieved, thank you, and I can't wait to be apart of next years event, along with doing what I can over the year to continue to contribute,

Thank you so much to The Nerd Machine for making people aware of this wonderful organization. And for making this year's panels available online! I feel like I got to participate in the best part of Comic Con even though I didn't get to go! And I got to help change lives!

I really enjoyed the panels eventhough I wasn't there in person, but I think its wonderful that Zac has these conversations for a cause.
For giving me the opportunity to watch them from the comfort of my home it is worth a donation to Operation Smile.
Thanks Zac & the entire crew of Nerd HQ
If everyone would donate just 10 dollars to a good cause. It doesn't even have to be Operation Smile the world would be a much better place to live.

Thank you, Nerd Machine, for streaming Nerd HQ live. I've attended via Internet all 3 years and really enjoyed the great panels. I really liked what Lisa said below about asking God to multiply her gift. I am going to do that from now on. I know God hears and answers our prayers. Thank you.

Thanks Zac, Dave, Courtney, Caleb, Shekinah and all the others at The Nerd Machine who have been involved in the arranging of NerdHQ for a fantastic experience that we (on the other side of the world) can also share via the internet ... the fact that it's all for a great cause like Operation Smile makes it all the better! :-)

I donated $4800.00 in mid June.
As I put my envelope in the mail box, I
asked God to multiply my gift, to help as many of these children as possible.
Days later while glancing at Operation Smile Facebook Page, I read that a company called "Nerd Machine" was matching Donations until June 30th!
This means the 20 children that were to be made physically whole, would actually be 40 children. I have been a Operation Smile donor before, but this is awesome! When I lay my head down at night I can find meaning for my own existence. Because I am blessed, I with the help of "Nerd Machine",and God, have helped restore 41 innocent lives.
Do you know how wonderful this feels?
Thank you Nerd Machine for matching my gift.
