As Operation Smile’s newest Smile Ambassador I am hosting this donation drive with the goal of repairing the smile of 20 children. Click on the photos on the left and watch the video to see firsthand the smiles of children forever changed by Operation Smile.
Each person who donates at least $5 will be entered to win lunch with me in New York City and a tour of the set of USA Network’s smash hit “White Collar.” The prize includes two coach airline tickets and two nights hotel stay in NYC.
There is no limit on how much you can give or the number of times you can contribute to this important cause. Donate today, donate often and tell your family, friends and followers to donate too! Follow me on Twitter http://www.twitter.com/sharifatkins and follow Operation Smile http://www.twitter.com/operationsmile to keep up with this campaign.
ABOUT OPERATION SMILE:
Operation Smile is an amazing organization that changes the lives of children born with cleft palates. Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 of those children won’t survive past their first birthday. Those who do survive often can’t eat or speak properly, are shunned and many don’t attend school. In as few as 45 minutes, and for as little as $240, Operation Smile can provide a child with free reconstructive surgery that will give new hope, laughter and smiles. Operation Smile has provided surgery for more than 160,000 children worldwide since its founding in 1982.
ABOUT ME - SHARIF ATKINS:
Currently, I am in a guest starring role on USA Network's top-rated drama “White Collar." If you were a fan of the long running medical drama "ER" you know me as Dr. Michael Gallant the Gulf War veteran. I have also guest starred on the hit series “The 4400,” “CSI: Miami,” “Criminal Minds,” “The Good Wife,” “Raising the Bar,” and “Numbers.” In 2010 I expanded my talents to the big screen, playing the lead role and love interest in the feature film “Preacher’s Kid” directed by Stan Foster. My film credits also include “Paved With Good Intentions” and “Out Of Exile.”
