Operation Smile provides free reconstructive surgery for children around the world who are suffering from facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate – healing their smiles and transforming their lives forever. Sanuk has partnered with Operation Smile for nearly 2 years providing donations that have helped heal over 500 children worldwide. Recently a team of employees and surfers from Sanuk traveled to Peru to participate in one of Operation Smile’s medical missions. Sanuk surfers Matt Meola, Torrey Meister and Alek Parker volunteered on the eight day mission, quickly becoming popular with the local families, doctors, and Operation Smile medical volunteers. Sanuk is creating a documentary about this trip which is scheduled to launch soon. View the trailer for A Different Reason to Smile.
