Since we opened DMC Atlanta in July of 2003, we have had a strong commitment to charitable organizations and giving back to our community. DMC Atlanta is part of several direct marketing, sales, and advertising networking groups and organizations. In 2011, we partnered several other organizations to support Operation Smile – an organization that funds mission trips throughout the world for doctors and volunteers to provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft — often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places these children are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a normal life. The cost of each surgery is right around $250. Because the doctors volunteer their time and pay their own way to the missions, the money raised goes directly to the cost of medications, surgical tools, anesthesia, and post procedure care.
In 2011, DMC Atlanta raised over $6000 for Operation Smile. This year – we want to go bigger. In everything we do, we want to be the best, so, within the network of marketing companies that has decided to support Operation Smile, we want to raise the most money and change the most lives. Our commitment from September 2012 until June of 2013 is to raise over $10,100 – enough to change the lives of over 40 children forever. Keep an eye out for exciting, fun, fundraising events that we will be holding throughout the next 10 months – including poker tournaments, volleyball and cornhole tournaments, raffles, and even a benefit concert.
