Campaign to Support AboutFace Craniofacial Family Society
Every year in Canada, approximately 15,000 babies are born with a facial difference like cleft lip and palate, port wine stain, or hemangioma. Additionally, 50,000 individuals will acquire a facial difference this year alone as a result of trauma or health issue. For 25 years, AboutFace has aided individuals with a facial difference in experiencing personal enrichment and growth. Founded in 1985, AboutFace has since grown to be a widely respected organization serving affected individuals at every stage of life. AboutFace is the only Canadian charitable organization that provides emotional, peer and social support, resources and educational programs to individuals with facial differenes and their families. We offer experiential programs like the highly successful Camp Trailblazers - a camp where kids with facial differences can be themselves and gain confidence in a welcoming environment, and our services include monthly support calls for parents and affected individuals. AboutFace also seeks to increase public understanding and acceptance of people living with facial differences through public awareness and education so we can stop the judgment of people who look different.
