Transform the Holidays

This holiday season, Transforming Faces invites our amazing supporters to help us transform the lives of children with cleft lip and palate. Roughly one in 700 babies are born with cleft lip and palate, and, while it is treatable with surgery and rehabilitation, comprehensive cleft care information and services are inaccessible or altogether unavailable in most parts of the world.

There are countless ways you can revamp your usual holiday traditions into an opportunity to raise awareness about comprehensive cleft care and change a child’s life forever!  Here are some ideas:

Host an event

  • Festive potluck dinner
  • Holiday movie marathon
  • Gift wrapping party
  • Holiday bake sale
  • Ugly Christmas sweater party

Get crafty for a cause

  • Sell handmade ornaments and holiday decorations
  • Knit and sell cozy winter accessories

Request donations in lieu of gifts

  • Not sure what to ask for? Helping put a smile on a child’s face would make a pretty amazing and meaningful gift!

Make a New Year’s resolution that counts

  • Set a goal and collect pledges to help you achieve it.
