Giving Back: Smile Network

June 8th, 2010

EDITOR’S NOTE:

Dr. Bashioum continues to support Smile Network International with Minneapolis hair stylist and salon owner Jason Deavalon.   While taking a break from filming for the blog, I filmed Jason at his salon last month.   Look closely at the poster seen on the left, as it promotes donations for Smile’s medical missions to repair cleft palates of children in poor countries around the world.

Social Safari: Donations Offer Hope

October 19th, 2009

This month’s Smile Network Benefit, hosted by the premiere Minneapolis stylist and salon owner, Jason Deavalon, was a huge success.   It was my pleasure to take part in raising donations to fund facial reconstruction surgery for needy children through the humanitarian efforts of Smile.  During my recent medical mission trip to Lima, Peru, I saw firsthand how the lives of children are transformed through this kind of surgery.   A disfigured child is offered new hope and a chance to flourish, where he was once shunned.   It is truly a life-changing experience to provide a medical service that is simply out of the reach for many suffering children and their families living in impoverished nations around the world.

$10,000 was donated by attendees that opted to trade their own smile lines for Nipntuck Botox gift certificates, to help fund the important work of The Smile Network.   I offer my sincere thanks to everyone whose generous contributions will be instrumental in improving the quality of life for hundreds of children.

Jason’s upcoming trek in Kenya continues to raise awareness about the enormous need being confronted annually by Smile.   You will be able to follow his ascent online as he climbs to the summit of Mt. Elgon.  Please go to www.smilenetwork.org and click on Jason’s Journey.
