Bankers Healthcare Group's Send A Smile Campaign Donates Facial Reconstructive Surgeries

SOUTHWEST RANCHES, Fla., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Bankers Healthcare Group, a leading national provider of financing solutions to healthcare professionals, celebrates the halfway point of their inaugural Send A Smile campaign this week. Launched in August, the initiative teams BHG and their healthcare clientele with Operation Smile, an international children's medical charity operating in more than 60 countries. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness and provide free, safe reconstructive surgeries to children and young adults born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.

For each loan generated through the Send A Smile campaign, BHG will donate a cleft repair surgery on behalf of their clients. BHG has pledged a minimum of $25,000 and to date, the campaign has provided funding for 18 surgeries.

BHG and Operation Smile also hope that the campaign will help raise awareness and support from within the healthcare community. More than 5,000 healthcare professionals already volunteer with Operation Smile to provide surgeries and training around the world.

"The Send A Smile campaign provides BHG with a great opportunity to help donate life-changing surgeries to children around the world," said Chris Panebianco, Senior VP of Marketing at BHG. "It also gives us a chance to express our appreciation to healthcare professionals for their continued hard work and sacrifice."

The Send A Smile campaign is scheduled to run through July 2013. To learn more about the campaign, please visit www.bhg-inc.com/send-smile.
