Former, Days of our Lives star, Deidre Hall has joined Operation Smile, a worldwide medical charity for children as a Smile Ambassador. Hall will support the organization’s global efforts of providing free surgeries for children born with cleft lip, cleft chin and other facial deformities. After researching children’s medical charities, Hall contacted the charity and volunteered her services.
On February 12, Deidre Hall will host the 2010 Valentine’s Charity and Celebrity Ball. The event will feature celebrities, fine dining and a fashion.
In August of 2009, Hall and her 16-year-old son, David Sohmer, accompanied Operation Smile on a medical mission to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, that provided new smiles to 113 children. “While working with Operation Smile in Brazil, my son David and I witnessed what a team of talented, dedicated medical volunteers can do for these children. You can’t imagine the dramatic changes that are being made in their lives and the joy experienced by their parents. A life-changing surgery, once so out of reach, becomes a reality due to the funding and coordination of Operation Smile,” Hall said of her experience. Upon returning from Brazil, Hall has been an ardent supporter for Operation Smile, helping to use her beloved fan base to raise awareness and funds for children in need. In October 2009, Hall attended Operation Smile’s 2009 gala in Los Angeles. During this event, Hall took the stage to share about her experience in Brazil.
