‘Day of Smiles’ Event Impacts Hundreds of ChildrenDec 13
Philanthropic People recently highlighted the remarkable organization Operation Smile and its Corporate Ambassadors that have helped to change the lives of children all over the world. One of those sponsors, Cydcor, reportedly raised nearly $100,000 for the foundation during the “Day of Smiles,” surpassing the goal of $90,000 the company had hoped to raise as part of the weekend-long event.
“Day of Smiles” was created by Cydcor to commemorate Operation Smile’s incredible efforts to help children born with cleft palates. The organization recent celebrated its 30th anniversary, which “Day of Smiles” coincided with. Dr. Bill Magee, CEO and Co-founder of Operation Smile, remarked, “Thanks to the generosity of our Corporate Smile Ambassador, Cydcor, and their compassionate and dedicated teams, we have been able to help hundreds of children and their families receive life changing surgery.” More than 415 children will have the chance to receive new smiles with the funds raised during “Day of Smiles.”
Cydcor’s CEO Vera Quinn explains, “We’re committed to Operation Smile and helping as many children as possible across the globe,” of the organization’s efforts to make a difference for hundreds of children. During the “Day of Smiles,” Cydcor team members raised funds the most personal way they knew how: by going door-to-door and business-to-business seeking donations for their incredible cause. “Cydcor team members and about 180 independently-owned offices in the United States and Canada all fundraised during the same weekend in October,” reports Business Wire. The company’s commitment to charity work and being a strong Corporate Ambassador is what allowed for such a successful fundraising event.
