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.

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.

I work in the hospital with newborns and have had the pleasure and honor to take care of cleft lip/palate babies and their families. I have watched the families emotional fluctuations and have been able to help them cope and educate them on their options in regards to fixing the cleft lip/palate. I am so incredibly moved that this is what you have chosen to fund and I thank you for being driven to do this.

I love the fact that every entertainment that fans have received from NERD HQ is not going in vain! It's amazing that all proceedings are going towards these children! I want to say that if it had not been for the amazing and handsome Zach Levi, I would not know about anything to do with operation smile or the panels. So kudos to Zach bringing in many, many of his fan base and making this such a successful operation! Love you.

Thank you to Zachary Levi and friends for increasing awareness of Operation Smile and moving the work into my universe. I decided to donate monthly when I read on this page that Zac is planning his own medical mission to Honduras. As former missionary, I realize the irreplacable impact and joy of first-hand experiences such as these. All my best to Zac and his teams.
