We invite your school to participate in The myFace Wonder Project, where students have the opportunity to “choose kindness” and make a big difference in the lives of others. Through the myFace Wonder Project, our goal is for students to unite against bullying and to identify acts of kindness they wish to implement throughout their school and local communities.
Create a Fundraising Page today and help us raise the critical funds we need to provide the comprehensive care and support craniofacial patients and families need to lead full and productive lives.
ACT OF KINDNESS
Statistics show that about 1 in 4 kids in the U.S. say they have been bullied at school on a regular basis. I know that I can do something about that and I'm "Choosing Kindness" at my school in my community.
In fact, every hour a child is born in the United States with a craniofacial condition. 95% of them will undergo multiple surgeries and long-term medical care throughout their childhood and into their adult life. Each year, the faces of another 100,000 individuals are disfigured through accident or disease.
Having a facial difference can impede the basic functions a child needs to survive and grow, such as eating, hearing and vision. Patients not only have to deal with the physical effects of their condition, but the challenging emotional impact as well, which can often result in feelings of isolation, discrimination, and low self-esteem.
Your support has a direct impact on the work we do and the patients and families we help. Changing their faces – and transforming their lives – forever.
myFace is a non-profit organization dedicated to changing the faces - and transforming the lives - of children and adults with facial differences. For nearly 70 years, myFace has worked with patients and families to provide multi-disciplinary, comprehensive care by funding medical, dental, speech, nutrition and psychosocial services.
myFace arranges complimentary flights through our Southwest Airlines’ Medical Transportation Grant Program and housing for out-of-town families in our myFace apartments to decrease the burden and expense of travel while their loved ones receive treatment.
myFace provides other important services such as access to patient and family support groups, workshops, webinars and networking opportunities that offer guidance, counsel and resources for our patients, families and the greater craniofacial community.
Because facial difference can impact the body and spirit so significantly, we always strive to educate others on the importance of empathy, celebrating uniqueness and always choosing to be kind through our public awareness efforts.
