Being a part of Operation Smile and raising money for children with cleft palates has been a really rewarding and an enriching experience. Through this club I have learnt how much an operation can change a persons life, making them happier and giving them healthier futures. I participated in various activities to raise money for Operation Smile such as our club’s advocacy week, the International Family Fair and Colour Miles for Smiles, all of which have taught me to work collaboratively with others. During the year I made posters for events, came to as many meetings as I could and also helped with ISB Panther Runs.
During the Operation Smile Colour Run, I volunteered at the event by throwing the powder at the runners. After the event I helped by passing around powder and clearing the area once the event was over. I really enjoyed volunteering because I could show my commitment to the club. I also knew the money raised for the event was going towards an incredible cause.
