Well well well, what do we have here. A sneaky extra blog post for the week, that’s what! I publish posts three times a week and those posts and scheduled roughly six weeks in advance, but, when I read about the campaign that Labello is running with the Smile Foundation, I knew I had to get onto posting something pronto!
A simple smile has so much power. It can brighten someone’s day in an instant; it can change the way you feel about yourself. A smile can send a message of love and happiness without saying a word.
For some children, such as 7-year old Uyanda, who are born with facial abnormalities. To be able to smile is something they wish for most. Being born with a cleft lip and cleft palate caus severe challenges in early feeding. Uyanda’s mother wasn’t blessed with seeing her precious child’s first smile.
From June this year, Labello is caring for lips and smiles across South Africa in a whole new way. By partnering with Smile Foundation to help other children like Uyanda. Through the Smile Foundation Uyanda has had three corrective surgeries and ongoing speech therapy over the last six years to give this courageous little girl the beautiful smile and confidence that she has today.
A new limited edition Labello Original Care Beautiful Smile dual-pack, available from June, offers two sticks of its timeless classic, Labello Original Care. Perfect for sharing! It’s a favourite beauty product. Your secret to a picture-perfect pout, providing long-lasting moisture. For irresistibly soft lips and a gorgeous smile. And now you can share it with a friend to make a life-changing difference to a child’s life.
There are three reasons the Labello Original Care Beautiful Smile dual-pack will make you smile: Firstly, when you buy a Beautiful Smile dual-pack for R34.99, R2 will go to the Smile Foundation. Secondly, you can share the smile by giving one stick to a friend. Thirdly, you can have some fun and upload a photo or video of you sharing your Beautiful Smile stick to Facebook or Instagram with the hastag #LabelloSmileChallenge and a further R1 will go to Smile Foundation. You’re probably smiling already!
Are you ready to take the #LabelloSmileChallenge to help transform lives?
Through Labello Beautiful Smile the goal is to raise, R250 000 for Smile Foundation by the end of September 2017. The funds raised will support pediatric patient surgeries within a mini Smile week, to give children with facial abnormalities such as clef lip or palate, facial paralysis, ear or nose deformities, burns, growths and craniofacial conditions the corrective surgery they need
Now, I can’t speak for everyone but that story about little Uyanda just about breaks my heart. I will DEFINITELY be buying a pack or two of these next time I spot them in the shops. And what better reminder to SMILE and tell yourself you are BEAUTIFUL.
