Founded in 1999, Smile Train has reached over 1.5 million children through its unique model of sponsoring cleft surgery and related essential care, while training and empowering healthcare professionals on how to adequately treat clefts in their own communities. They also fund community health workers to identify and reach cleft-affected families who need support.

Smile Train was named InspireMore’s first-ever “Cause Partner of the Year”, an honor that includes a fully integrated and personalized one-year partnership focused on aligning the entire InspireMore platform with work by Smile Train.

“We know that clefts affect millions of lives around the world, but many people are simply unaware of the condition. Clefts can cause difficulty eating, breathing, hearing and speaking for 1 in 700 babies born with one every year,” said Phil Carroll, senior vice president of communications at Smile Train. “This new partnership with InspireMore will help us educate the public about clefts while helping to raise awareness of the free, life-changing cleft surgery we offer in addition to services like speech therapy, emotional and nutritional support and orthodontic care. We look forward to the positive news to come from this partnership.”

“Because March 2014, InspireMore has reached over 500 million people around the world with positive news and inspirational content, and we’re so excited to partner with Smile Train to share their stories from the field. The web is full of negative and divisive media, and we aim to be the antidote to this problem by publishing only positive media that spreads hope and optimism,” said Hunter Stensrud, co-founder of InspireMore. “We know clefts are a life-threatening condition, and Smile Train’s work is a testament to how donor support can improve the lives of children who need help. After looking at a wide range of causes to support With our ‘Partner Cause of the Year’, Smile Train’s work stood out for its simple but hugely important goal of improving the lives of people with clefts. The stories we’ll share through this partnership will show audiences how basic surgery can create the most impactful “before and after” cases you’ve ever seen, while showcasing the ongoing services needed to support patients. These articles will also highlight how the public can help people with clefts, and we know our readers will be as passionate as we are about the work of Smile Train.
