ABOUT PPA CHARITIES
The Charitable Arm of Professional Photographers of America
Established as a charitable, non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization, PPA Charities allows imaging professionals to combine their individual efforts to make an even bigger impact on the lives of children and families everywhere.
In 2005, PPA Charities Trustees invited Operation Smile to become its Charitable Partner. A perfect fit for photographers, whose daily business is creating smiles for their clients, Operation Smile's mission is repairing childhood facial deformities including cleft lips and cleft palates. In as little as 45 minutes and for as little as $240, Operation Smile medical volunteers can help change a life forever.
PPA Charity's affiliation with Operation Smile provides PPA-member studios with an opportunity to be part of a talented and dedicated group of professionals who work together toward a single charitable purpose: putting smiles on the faces of deserving children around the world.
