"Operation Smile":

"We believe every child deserves exceptional surgical care. We believe all children deserve to be treated as if they were our own.

That’s what drives each and every one of us: our global network of medical professionals, who donate hundreds of thousands of hours toward the care of children around the world each year, and our supporters who are moved every day to make a difference in the lives of children they’ve never met." http://www.operationsmile.org/vision/why-we-exist

"Operation Smile was founded in 1982 when Dr. William (Bill) P. Magee, Jr., a plastic surgeon, and his wife, Kathleen (Kathy), a nurse and clinical social worker, traveled to the Philippines with a group of medical volunteers to repair children's cleft lips and cleft palates."  http://www.operationsmile.org/vision/our-story





Darren and Mia are participating in an Operation Smile Charity ski event.  :happy face

Note:  Zachary Levi is a Broadway star and also played Chuck in Chuck, which also starred Matt Bomer.

I forgot to add Darren's performances in WordTheatre's "In the Cosmos" (on August 26, 2017) to this thread about Darren's charitable events.   Proceeds for "In the Cosmos" benefitted WordTheatre in the Schools.   For more discussion (by Jeremy and Lilikoiluv), go to this thread:   Miscellaneous Projects and Events for 2017




Darren sounds just fantastic on this cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity"!   heart heart heart Such an interesting tone, and dramatic delivery, which is what the song requires.  :happy face
