The Story

The Story


Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe. It is a wonderful charity that is able to make a HUGE difference in a child's life. The Professional Photographers of America have teamed up with Operation Smile to present the Celebration of Smiles.


Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities. Our work creates a lasting global impact. We train local doctors in developing countries and strengthen healthcare systems so more children in some of the poorest areas in the world can be treated.



HERE'S WHERE YOU COME IN!



Just $250 can help provide a cleft lip or cleft palate surgery. This surgery can change a child's life forever and can take as few as 45 minutes. With the help of Lourcey Photography, we will be offering mini portrait sessions at Westwood on Wednesday, April 25th for a special price of $25. This year’s theme will be a Photo Booth look with props. We will take all the proceeds from the day and donate them to Operation Smile. For every 10 sessions we do, one child's life will be forever changed! To show our appreciation, you will get a retouched digital file to print or share online! All participating/paid students will also be allowed to enjoy Free Dress (following Free Dress school guidelines) on that same day with a paid portrait session or donation of $25 or more.


If you will be in the Dallas area on April 25th, be sure to stop by The Westwood School Midway campus. No sign-up required prior to the event...just drop in between 8am and 5pm.



If you would like for your child to participate, we are delighted to borrow him/her from class for their special session during that school day, as well... no parent is required to be present for their child’s session...we’ll take care of it all. You may make a donation for their session here online anytime on or before April 25th.


If you wish to make a donation without participating in the portrait session, we are grateful for donations of any size at the online site above, as well. We also will be accepting in-person session payment and donations the day of the event. The impact of your donation:



$25 -  A portion of a smile
$125 - Half a smile
$250 - I'll fix a WHOLE smile by myself!
$500 - Call me Superman - I'm bringing beautiful smiles to TWO kids!!!


Also, if you can share this page with your friends and help us spread the word- that would be awesome as well!

Over the past few years my fellow friend and Westwood Alum, Dean Lourcey, raised enough money to fix dozens and dozens of smiles!  I have eagerly taken over the reigns and have set my sights on 20 smiles. 

I realize it is a very lofty goal, but we are hoping you will help us reach it. That would definitely make ME smile!

Thanks for your support!
