140 smiles in 140 characters: Operation Smile + Twitter

One child’s life-transforming surgery costs as little as $240 and can take only 45 minutes. Join the Tango Diva team as we help support the goal of 140 of these surgeries to children around the world through the power of Twitter!

Tango Diva has started a Smile Team – it takes just a dozen $20 donations to provide one child with a life changing surgery. After you donate (enter Tango Diva in the Team box) encourage others to give via your twitter account!
