PAWS for a CAUSE
Can you think of better way to honor the love you feel for the pets in your life than by helping to transform the life of a child who suffers from a facial deformity that threatens his or her ability to live a normal life?
You can do just that by participating in Persnickety’s year-round commitment to Operation Smile, a heart-touching organization whose volunteer medical personnel repair cleft lips, cleft palates, and other facial deformities of children and young adults in 27 countries where families don’t have access to life-changing surgeries available to all children in America. For only $240, Operation Smile can change a child’s life by giving the gift of a cleft lip surgery.
Three Ways That You Can Help Operation Smile . . .
- Persnickety is one of several hundred studios throughout the country that support Operation Smile by participating in Family Portrait Month each October. During October, we will contribute 10% of each portrait sale to Operation Smile. Family Portrait Month is sponsored by PPA Charities, the charitable arm of Professional Photographers of America.
- Throughout the rest of the year, if you mention that you would like to support Operation Smile, we will donate your session fee to the organization.
- At any time you can purchase a set of 8 Smile Cards — note cards that feature your portrait on the front and Operation Smile’s logo on the back — for only $20 per set. All Smile Cards proceeds are donated to Operation Smile. Limit of 2 sets per family please.
