Their mission is to develop and ensure that children don’t lose hope in today or the future. Bill and Kathy Magee started the organization in 1984 and have added thousands of volunteers to the mix. They travel all over the world working with medical offices, government agencies and healthcare facilities to make the surgeries possible. Avi Weisfogel has chosen Operation Smile because of these reason and more. In addition, he hopes to raise enough money to help the organization and make a difference, so he has started the campaign off by donating $2000.00.
