Send a Smile Campaign Launches

04 May 2015
Bankers Healthcare Group and Operation Smile Launch the Send a Smile Campaign

Bankers Healthcare Group (BHG), the leading provider of financing solutions for healthcare professionals, is pleased to announce that its third Send A Smile campaign is officially underway in partnership with Operation Smile, Inc. (OSI), an international charity that provides free surgeries for children born with cleft lip, palate or other facial deformities.

For each BHG loan funded through the Send A Smile campaign, one cleft repair surgery will be donated to OSI on behalf of the BHG client. The company has pledged to donate $25,000 (100 surgeries) by April 30, 2016, but hopes to surpass that amount. The two organizations are thrilled to continue the campaign, which has seen great success in recent years.

“Operation Smile is grateful to Bankers Healthcare Group for their commitment to help fund surgeries for more than 100 children through the third Send A Smile campaign,” stated Lisa Jardanhazy, VP of global media strategy for Operation Smile. “Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. This partnership will not only provide needed surgeries for children in resource-poor environments, but will also connect Operation Smile to BHG’s clients—healthcare professionals who comprise the volunteer pool for our medical missions. This partnership works on all levels and we thank BHG for their continued compassion for our cause.”
