SmileTrain holds a special place in my heart.. bc I was born with a cleft lip. For those who have no idea what this is, please go to the SmileTrain website.. while most of these cases are extreme, most cases have the same issues because of the cleft. Some kids are lucky enough to JUST have the cleft lip.. Most kids get the cleft palate (the roof of your mouth) along with the cleft lip. Thanks to military surgeons, I am blessed to have the smallest scar I've EVER seen on a cleft lip patient.. but not a lot of people are that lucky, even in the US..
I am an animal lover.. The commercials for this organization (or any animal saving organization, for that matter) make me tear up so much that I turn the channel, mute the tv, or walk out of the room to avoid seeing those poor animals.. And while I plan to get involved with my local humane society in some way, I'm wanting to do more..
So, those are the two charities I'm stuck on.. And while I'd love to give to both, right now I just can't see the financial ability to do so AND be able to move out in March (which HAS to happen.. lol)..
