I just love the spirit and heart of Close To My Heart - from the founder and president, Jeanette Lynton, to the executive team, staff, consultant base, and customers!! Whenever there is a disaster or need, we quickly step up to the plate to help! This month is no different. After the SUPER storm that ravaged the Philippines, they are in desperate need of help - NOW!
During the month of November, all donations made to Operation Smile via Close To My Heart will go to benefit survivors of the recent typhoon in the Philippines.
On Wednesday, Close To My Heart received the following message from Dr. Bill Magee, the co-founder and CEO of Operation Smile:
"My wife Kathy and I have a very special connection to the Philippines—it's the place where we conducted our first medical mission, and the country whose people inspired us to found Operation Smile over 30 years ago. Now they need us more than ever—the coming days will be critical to the survival of hundreds of thousands of people.
"That's why I'm reaching out to you today. Your gift will make an immediate impact—helping to provide essential supplies and funds to our Operation Smile Philippines office headquartered in Manila. They are standing by for our help right now. As many of you already know, one of the largest storms ever recorded—Super Typhoon Haiyan—struck the country on Friday, leveling homes, destroying infrastructure, and displacing hundreds of thousands of people.
"Every dollar you give will go directly towards providing our foundation, on the ground in Manila, with the supplies and resources they desperately need to help their communities. This includes supplies like portable water filtration devices to provide clean drinking water, antibiotics for those facing infection or water borne illness, nutritional supplements, and other medical supplies that will help the hundreds of thousands of people affected."
