"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

They shared the small screen years ago as co-stars on hit singing show Glee.

And Heather Morris and Darren Criss looked positively delighted to be sharing the red carpet of Saint John’s  Health Center 75th Anniversary Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday evening.

The 30-year-old actors beamed with joy as they embraced at the private benefit in the Culver City area.


Fancy! Darren looked absolutely dapper in a grey vest with black detailing around the pockets and matching trousers,

He sported a silky black tie with a crisp black long-sleeved shirt rolled up to his forearms and shiny black shoes.

It's endearing how much Darren loves Disney songs.  Nice message from a fan.  :happy face


boundtobedisneydapper: So, here’s a fun little clip of @darrencriss singing the theme song from Duck Tales. He is one of the most genuinely amazing people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting! I have nothing but great things to say on his behalf. So enjoy this  heart Happy Friday!
