Since launching in March 2014, we’ve made it our mission to spread hope and inspiration to the world through the power of digital storytelling. It’s been an incredible, humbling journey these past eight years, with over 500 million people reached with the inspiring stories and news our dedicated team has produced. None of this would’ve been possible without you, our beloved InspireMore community! 

That’s why we’re thrilled to announce an exciting new way for the InspireMore community to continue spreading hope into the world… introducing our first-ever Partner Cause of the Year, Smile Train!

Read on to learn more about the life-changing vision of Smile Train, why we’re partnering together, and how YOU, our community, can play a pivotal role in bringing more smiles to children in need in 2022.

The Incredible Impact Of Smile Train 

As the world’s largest cleft-focused organization, Smile Train has supported safe, high-quality cleft treatment to more than 1.5 million children in just 22 years.

By doing so, they have changed the lives of countless children who were born with clefts, including Ever, a teen living in Mexico. Before his surgery, his family struggled to understand what he was trying to say, but thanks to Smile Train and their local partners, he found his voice!

But it’s not just about speaking clearly. Globally, a baby is born with a cleft every three minutes, and they often have trouble eating, breathing, and hearing. As a result, many experience bullying and struggle to maintain a healthy weight, which can make it difficult for them to participate fully in school and social activities.

In other words, clefts are a serious medical condition affecting the lives of millions of people globally. The good news is, treatment is safe, effective, and lifesaving… when people have access to it.

That’s where Smile Train comes in! They help change lives NOT by sending doctors on missions, but by empowering local medical professionals to help children in their own communities through life-changing surgery and related comprehensive cleft care.

The result? Families like Ever’s are left saying, “With the help of Smile Train, we are happy.”

Changing The World One Smile At A Time, Together!  

InspireMore wants to spread that happiness even further, so we named Smile Train our first-ever “Partner Cause of the Year” for 2022! Selected from a host of potential NGO partners, this honor includes a fully integrated and custom year-long paid partnership focused on aligning the entire InspireMore platform with Smile Train’s vision.

This partnership will help educate the public about clefts while spreading awareness of the free, life-changing cleft treatment Smile Train sponsors, leveraging InspireMore’s good news platform to share inspiring, positive stories from the field of comprehensive cleft care. Plus, InspireMore will be directly supporting Smile Train’s crucial work around the world. More announcements on what that will look like and how you can participate to come!
