Avi Weisfogel will donate funds to the organization Operation Smile in an effort to help those in need. He intends to raise funds through a GoFundMe page to help children from around the world receive dental care and surgery. The goal amount for the GoFundMe page is $2,000, and will help support the efforts of Operation Smile as they bring advanced dental care to locations where such resources aren’t easily accessible. The donations will provide both volunteer and local doctors with dental instruments and tools as well as the expertise necessary to achieve good outcomes for the children who receive surgery.
Operation Smile was started in 1982 by Bill and Kathy Magee, who first provided care to the children of the Phillipines. They saw a need and addressed it by developing a plan to bring dental knowledge to areas with limited tools, know-how, and access. Through training, the mission also helps nations develop their own dentistry clinics to further provide local children with dental care. Today, they work with thousands of volunteers and operate in in over 80 global locations.
