When I was much younger, my mother found it very important to educate us about all things health in a way we would best receive it. One day, she brought home a children’s read about a boy with a facial anomaly called a cleft lip. Now this was something I’d definitely not heard of or seen before, nothing I’ve ever heard of in the news or in the classroom. You can only imagine how smart I was feeling after reading the book and educating all of my classmates on the playground!
Fast forward a couple of years later and once again Im confronted by the reality of a cleft lip. Now however, I’ve been exposed to a brand which is raising awareness and more importantly contributing to helping those in need.
Labello has partnered with Smile foundation to help children who have facial anomalies by providing funding their corrective surgeries and the necessary speech therapy. As of June 2017, a new limited addition Labello Original Care Beauty Smile dual-pack will be available for purchase in stores. By purchasing the dual-pack which retails for R34.99, you will contribute R2 and add to the goal of raising R250 000 for Smile Foundation by the end of September 2017.
It didn’t happen if there are no pictures right?! Go the extra mile and a further R1 to the cause by uploading an image of yourself on Instagram/Facebook with the hashtag #LabelloSmileChallenge
Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. – Mother Teresa
