PPA Charities Announces $25,000 Challenge Campaign

PPA Charities has announced a new promotion for the month of December. A group within PPA Charities has challenged PPA members to raise $25,000 for Operation Smile by the end of 2010. This PPA Charities' "leadership circle" has pledged to match, dollar-for-dollar, all PPA member contributions up to the total of $25,000. Donations must be made before December 25, 2010.

In announcing this challenge, PPA Charities President Mary Fisk-Taylor said, "We are so grateful to these individuals for their leadership. If PPA members respond as we hope they will, we will be far more likely to meet our 2010 goal of raising $120,000 for Operation Smile. If we do, then PPA members can be extraordinarily proud that they have made it possible for 500 desperate children to receive the gift of surgery that will change their lives forever."

This means that a $240 donation, the cost of one surgery through Operation Smile, will now fund two surgeries.

Remember that if you contribute $240 or more, you will be listed on the PPACH consumer site As a 2011 PPA Charities Operation Smile Studio, you will have access to special promotional downloads and receive the monthly Keeping in Touch e-newsletter in which studios can share their year-round fund raising ideas.
