Nobel Should-Have-Been #2

The Smile Foundation.

The Smile Foundation is an organization of medical professionals who donate time and resources to perform facial surgery on children in developing nations who suffer from palate and other cranio-facial deformities.

These children are not only given the gift of being able to do things such as eat and breathe normally, but they are given the gift of social acceptance in societies in which they are often shunned by their peers, viewed as the product of wickedness, hidden away, or abandoned and left to die.
