Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a dentist with a mission. The mission, like the mission of many, is to benefit the world, through action. Dr. Weisfogel has launched a GoFundMe campaign to benefit the organization Operation Smile. Operation Smile works to make certain life-changing surgeries available for children and young adults, specifically surgeries that help correct cleft palate or cleft lip. This organization works tirelessly to give children the healthcare they need, and is constantly looking for solutions to global healthcare problems that can benefit the most children. This organization was founded in 1982 and has been built upon the goal of giving as many deserving children and young adults the surgery they need.
Avi Weisfogel’s passions for dentistry and sleep therapy have made an impact on the world, but his passion for aiding children is a passion that has the potential for an even larger impact. Dr. Weisfogel is the definition of a philanthropist, and so an organization like Operation Smile, along with other charities that Dr.Weisfogel donates to, presents an opportunity for him to continue to positively impact the world. With the donations he makes, to any charity or through this GoFundMe campaign, Dr. Weisfogel is able to impact hundreds of people. The children that will benefit from his donation to the start of the GoFundMe campaign will have access to life-changing surgery that they might never have had access to without his aid.
