Subject: Thanks for an incredible year, Curtis Thousands of beautiful smiles exist today because of your support. Dear Curtis,
There are only a few hours left until the ball drops. And before we say goodbye to a truly remarkable year, I just want to express my heartfelt thanks for everything you’ve helped us achieve in 2013.
Because of the unwavering commitment of supporters like you, we performed thousands — yes, thousands — of life-changing cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries this year. More than 21,000 surgeries, in fact.
This means that together, we stopped the suffering of 21,000 children who struggled with the most basic tasks like eating and drinking. We kept 21,000 children from a devastating fate of isolation, and even abandonment. And we shared in the joy of 21,000 children who looked in the mirror and saw a brand new smile staring back at them — just like Chutima and Autsanee, seen below:
You should feel so proud knowing that families all over the world will start their new year off happier and healthier because of the care you helped provide.
It’s my greatest wish that with your support, we can do the same for even more families in the new year. We are already gearing up for dozens of missions in 2014, where we’ll meet hundreds of children and families desperately waiting for surgery. It’s because of you that we’ll be able to help — and we can’t wait to get started.
I can’t express how meaningful it is to all of us here at Operation Smile that we know we can count on you. You’ve proved time and time again that you’ll be there — right by our side — to provide children with cleft the access and support they need for a better life they never thought possible.
Thank you for all you’ve done, Curtis, and for all we will do together in the year ahead.
To a very happy New Year,
Dr. Bill Magee
Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer
