As you know, each year during the holidays Berry Industrial donates to a charity on behalf of our valued customers and suppliers. This year we decided to continue that tradition but wanted to make things a little more creative and we’d like your help!
The charity we have chosen to donate to this year is Operation Smile. Berry Industrial is proud to support Operation Smile’s vision to create a world where no child suffers from lack of access to safe surgical care. As an Operation Smile Business Ambassador, Berry Industrial is helping to heal children’s smiles around the world through safe, effective, and well-time cleft lip and cleft palate surgery. Every 3 minutes, a child is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate, and may suffer from hunger, thirst, difficulty with speech and social isolation. Since 1982, Operation Smile has given over 250,000 children and adults born with cleft lip and cleft palate the free surgery and medical care they could not otherwise afford.
Our idea this year is a campaign we have named “Pallets for Palates.” We wish to invite our customers and suppliers to submit a photo to us depicting a clever use of a wooden pallet – whether it be pallet furniture, pallet art, etc. For every picture we receive, we will donate $10.00 to Operation Smile (up to $15,000). You don’t need to be the creator of the pallet furniture/pallet art, you simply need to e-mail us a photo at email@example.com! It’s that easy! Please let us know in your e-mail submission if you do not wish us to publish your name and/or company name with the photo and we will be mindful of your request.
We plan to display all the photos below with a tally of the funds raised so you can keep track of our progress! Check back often to see how innovative people are!
We hope you’ll help us bring hope and new smiles to children suffering from facial deformities. Let’s make Pallets for Palates a success and help a child smile!
