Our mission here at Just a Smile is to raise awareness about cleft lips and palates and to provide financial and emotional support to children not only around the world, but in our local communities where the necessary support may not always be provided. Equally as important to us, we want to celebrate everyone’s beauty and uniqueness by promoting compassion, acceptance, kindness and empathy.
Our vision is to make sure that every child affected by cleft lip and palate receives the care that they need and that every child is happy and confident with themselves and with their smile.
Just a Smile is a charity that was started by Brooke Hira, who was born with a cleft lip and palate. Originally founded in 2017 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Just a Smile, Inc. donates all proceeds to help fund cleft lip and palate surgeries and to help provide care and goods to families with cleft lip and palate children.
