**ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS**
When I started Freestyle 4 Smile at the age of 16, I always wanted to raise money by holding challenges that I could do alone - I thought this was the best way to make an impact. -
However, I couldn't have been more wrong. This year is very different, both events held are giving YOU the chance to make a difference.
Fundraising can be extremely difficult. I caught the fundraising bug when I realised I was changing children's lives around the world, just like me. - Thanks to the incredible support and donations. .
I have spent years of my life dedicated to Smile
Train, with many many more to come. But why...
Cleft children are not only born without a smile, struggling to eat and speak. They're not given the opportunities of education or work. These children could be diamonds in the rough that will be forever hidden. -
I am the person I am today because of one thing - SUPPORT. I would never have achieved the things I've done, alone. I've needed help when times have been difficult. -
I am sure everyone can think of a time when someone's actions have helped you in a time of difficulty. This support is something we all have the ability to provide, support cleft children need.
As people, WE have the chance to stop speaking about the issue and start DOING something. .
Together we can start uncovering these diamonds. - Because every child deserves a chance to smile. A smile that will open doors to opportunities that wouldn't have existed before.

12/1/15 In honor of “#GivingTuesday,” I joined members of the Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce at IMC Meat Company in Huntington Village to encourage residents to help support the efforts of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's annual “Toys for Tots” drive.
The mission of “Giving Tuesday,” was designed to follow “Black Friday and Cyber Monday,” to help promote the need for selfless acts of kindness and a fun way to give back to the community.

“We love working with GOEX because it's so rewarding working alongside a company who shares the same mission and vision as us — to use their time, gifting, and resources to be a light for Christ to others.” — Kaylee Wright, Highland Park KLIFE Women's Director. // Thank you @hpklife for your partnership - we love working with you!
It's Friday and most people are making plans and relaxing. It's also very rewarding to give back! We encourage you to get involved with your local community for individual volunteer opportunities or something more permanent, like a board. #giveback#repost@jessiebser
