Thank you for your help with LWB's Cleft Exchange

Because you bought a hat at Sprout Tops, or you bought a hat for an orphan on our Love Without Boundaries page, you were a part of this wonderful event! So many miraculous things happened and so many children's lives were changed forever. 

Here are some of the sweeties who are wearing Sprout Tops hats!


And here is the whole story!

Love Without Boundaries 2014 Cleft Exchange - 30 surgeries, 30 transformations, 30 children's lives changed

Reading these updates every day warmed my heart and broke my heart all at the same time. Thanks again for the part you played in helping these children.
