Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe.
In 2011, they launched their variation on a Give One, Get One program.
For as little as $240 you can help give a child a new smile and quite possibly the first teddy bear of their very own. Purchase the gift of a surgery and we will send a teddy bear on an Operation Smile medical mission to be hand-delivered to a child receiving surgery. To help remind you of your wonderful gift, you also will receive one of the commemorative bears for you to keep or share with someone special.
$240 is more of a donation than a purchase, but is still a good example of how longstanding charities can adapt the give/get approach.
