There’s nothing more warming than a smile. It gives you confidence, helps those around you feel at ease and so much more. Here are a few quotes I found to help paint a picture about the importance of what a smile can do for a person and to help set the tone of how awesome this story is:
- People seldom notice old clothes if you wear a big smile. ~Lee Mildon
- The world always looks brighter from behind a smile. ~Author Unknown
- Life is like a mirror, we get the best results when we smile at it. ~Author Unknown
Mingle Media TV is excited to be reporting on an awesome program designed to give back to our kids… to give them the gift of a smile. We love to support our Los Angeles Area community and causes large and small > especially ones that we know you can come out and support as well. The program is called “The Smile Portrait Project” and is founded by photographer, Faleena Hopkins, who is offering free 30 minute portrait shoots where the participants can purchase the photos after the shoot (or not). Faleena will be donating a large portion of the proceeds to the “Smile Train” organization that helps children with cleft-pallet smile again.
Now, you don’t have to be a celebrity to participate and we’d love to keep Faleena busy shooting every hour because the “cause” is definitely something we all know is important!
Here’s how to reach her to schedule your FREE photo shoot:
Here’s more info on the “Smile Train” Benefit: Cleft lips and palates are a significant problem in under-developed countries. Children do not have the money or opportunity for reparative surgery to help them live normal lives. The goal of “Smile Train” is to provide free cleft surgeries for millions of poor children in developing countries and to provide free cleft-related training to medical personnel.
