The month of October is National Portrait Month. Photographers from across the United States have joined together with the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) Charities to make a difference in children’s lives. They are conducting a fund-raising effort to support Operation Smile. Participating photographers have pledged to contribute a portion of each October family portrait sale to PPA Charities, which has chosen Operation Smile as its charitable partner. More than $15.000 was raised for Operation Smile during this event last year.
Operation Smile is a non-profit organization which treats children around the world who suffer from cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities. Operation Smile has treated more than 100,000 children worldwide and has programs in 25 partner countries.
