Operation Smile takes new donations

Dr. Avi Weisfogel has launched a GoFundMe campaign and donated $2000.00 to get the donations started in efforts to raise money for Operation Smile. Operation Smile is a global organization that raises money for children and young adults across the world to help aid in their dental issues or facial surgeries they may be facing but don’t necessarily have the funds. They want to instill hope in all young adults and set their future up for a better tomorrow. As a practicing dentist himself, he understands how important it is for people to get the necessary dental care and work that they need. He chose Operation Smile because of their quality continued efforts to help children all over the world. It’s great foundation that was started in 1982 by Kathy and Bill Magee. Their first mission was stationed in the Philippines, where they spend time donating money to help young children over there with their surgeries and other dental issues. It was a huge success, and here the foundation is decade’s later producing funds for children all over the world. They have been able to help in the aid of over 200,000 surgeries and continue to stand proud that they are still able to do good work now.

Avi Weisfogel is a practicing dentist in the New Jersey area who is passionate about helping others. Not only has he started a campaign to help aid in the donations for Operation Smile, but he has started a program that helps educated other dentists and their office staff on the application and effectiveness of oral appliances to help with sleep disorders. Many people suffer from obstructive sleep apnea and stop breathing when they sleep because their throat relaxes. Avi Wesifogel helps educate them on what they should be looking for with these patients who suffer from a sleep disorder. It can affect their entire life if it’s not corrected. The oral appliances move their jaw forward in such a way that keeps their airway open, hence, allowing airway to flow easily in and out as they sleep which lets them fall into a deeper REM sleep.

Avi studied at the New York College of Dentistry where he obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery. Before that he studied psychology and biology in New Brunswick. He has dedicated much of his life to helping the public and educating them about proper treatments and taking part in successful surgeries. Check out one of his educational YouTube videos here.

Sanjay Shah and the Benefits of His Charity,

Autism Rocks is a fairly new charity event that has increased its charitable contributions in the past couple of years fairly quickly. It concentrates on raising money and accepting donations that help aid in the research and development of autism. Millions all over the world are affected by the neurological condition, and at times can be very hard to understand and cope with at the same time. That’s where Sanjay Shah and the benefits of his charity, Autism Rocks, come into play. When his son was diagnosed in 2011 at the age of two, it became a passion of his to help his son as best as he could. He was not expecting to hear the word autism come out of the doctor’s mouth nor did he know a whole lot about it. He had heard of the term before, but wasn’t exactly sure what it was. He began to research the condition and find out as much as he could about it. He launched Autism Rocks in 2014 which is an invite only concert event that is performed by some of the most famous music artists in the industry. He has worked with many musicians such as Snoop Dogg and Michael Buble. In fact, it was Snoop Dogg who urged him to find his roots in the music industry again, as he had in the past and continues to have a love for music.

Autism Rocks has blossomed into a charity that has most definitely made an impact in the world already. Shah has increased his employees by adding two new members to the team. One member will help with the financials side of things, and the other will aid in the music development. Shah has been able to donate some money to universities that are participating in research projects and programs that aid in helping families and patients cope. Shah understands that not everyone has the ability to be able to afford the help that they need, nor do they have the knowledge to get the help that they need. With his charity he hopes to help in many ways and raise awareness. Check out Sanjay Shah’s blog on wordpress to stay up-to-date.
