Its been really cool to hear how others are doing something similar this Christmas. This was just left on my facebook wall and thought I would share it. She's a college student -- how awesome!
For one of my gifts this year i went through "operation smile" this is an organization that goes to third world countries, sets up free clinics, and fixes children's cleft lips and/or cleft palates. its kinda personal to me because it has to do with the field im studying (speech language pathology) and just so happens to be the area i want to specialize in. its great though--you can provide different things for the surgery depending on the amount of money you want to spend. i bought pain medication for 12 children ($30)...surreal to me; 12 children can be provided with pain medication for 30 dollars....an amount of money which we spend on clothes and shoes without a second thought. anyway, theres another organization :) - Jordyn
