Ming, 6 years old

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

By chance, Ming’s mother found an Operation Smile® flyer advertising the November 2007 mission in Cambodia. Ming and his grandmother traveled five hours in an overcrowded taxi from Odong Mein Chey province to the Khmer-Soviet Hospital in Phnom Penh to be considered for surgery. Before his operation, Ming didn’t want to go to school because the neighborhood children were scared of him and would not let him play with them. Now that his mouth and nose are corrected, Ming looks forward to school. With these amazing results, he is now a lively and confident kid.

Close To My Heart donates a portion of every stamp sale to this cause.  You can also help by either donating a set amount with each order or rounding up your purchase to the next dollar.  Every little bit helps.

This year at Convention, over $17,000 was raised in donations and 2 auctions.  That was from about 1,200  consultants.  I urge you to put a smile on the face of a child.
