“Family Portrait Month” to Benefit Operation Smile

Operation Smile

The Professional Photographers of America Charities is promoting “Family Portrait Month” this October by joining a national fund-raising campaign that will benefit Operation Smile, a non-profit organization which treats children around the world who suffer with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.

Photographers from all over the USA have pledged to donate a portion of each October family portrait sale to PPA Charities, which in turn will give it to Operation Smile.

Operation Smile, Inc. (http://www.operationsmile.org) started in 1982 with Dr. William P. Magee Jr., a plastic surgeon, and his wife, Kathleen, a nurse and clinical social worker. Operation Smile medical volunteers repair childhood facial deformities. To date, Operation Smile has treated more than 100,000 children worldwide and currently has programs in 25 partner countries.
