Avi Weisfogel’s GoFundMe Campaign
Avi Weisfogel has recently become involved in GoFundMe, a popular charity website. GoFundMe is the face of a new era in charity, using online crowdfunding and fundraising to collect donations for important causes. The beauty of GoFundMe is that it has a variety of fundraisers for all sorts of causes, from large charities to individuals who are launching campaigns for their own needs. Avi Weisfogel uses the site as a platform for his own charity, Operation Smile.
Weisfogel began the “Healthy Heart Sleep” center in order to train himself and other doctors in treating people with sleep problems. He also started Owner Unlimited Sleep Patients to perform lectures on sleep issues. He started Dental Sleep Masters, a program that trains doctors on how to use oral devices to help aid in sleep. It also showed how sleep problems and dental health can be related.
Today, Weisfogel is venturing into GoFundMe charity efforts with Operation Smile. It is a medical charity that allows doctors to perform free surgeries on children born with deformities. The surgeries often help children with cleft palates or cleft lips. In addition to monetary donations, the charity takes in medical supplies from different companies as well as voluntary staff from doctors and nurses. The charity aims to help give free surgeries to children from all over the world.
