My Baby Fingers Encourages Parents to “Hop on the Smile Train” to Help Children Born with Cleft Lips and Palates

New York, NY, June 01, 2011 --( My Baby Fingers, known for their infant and children’s programs that teach American Sign Language (ASL) and provide music therapy to kids of all ages, is teaming up with Smile Train, the international charity for children born with cleft lips and cleft palates. From now until August 31, 2011, My Baby Fingers is donating $1.00 from every Webinar purchase, $2.00 from every CD purchase and $5.00 from every DVD purchase. These products provide insight and education to parents on how to increase their child’s verbal and communication skills, and now the purchase of these items can help children born with cleft lips receive the medical attention and therapy they need to overcome this difficult condition.

Smile Train helps children in 75 countries born with clefts by providing free surgery to enable them to eat, speak and live normal, healthy lives. Many children born with clefts in underdeveloped countries go untreated due to extreme poverty. Doctors and surgeons travel to these countries to perform a 45-minute surgery to prevent the shame and isolation many of these children have to contend with. The services provided by Smile Train include rehabilitative care that includes speech therapy, general dentistry and orthodontics. Millions of people from all over the world donate to Smile Train to help provide these necessary and life-changing services.

My Baby Fingers, a New York City infant and early childhood learning institution since 2000, is committed to helping Smile Train raise money to help children born with cleft lips or cleft palates. They are proud to contribute through the sale of their educational materials. For more information, please visit their Web site at, or call 212 874-5978.
