AGOURA HILLS, Calif., May 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cydcor, the recognized leader of in-person customer acquisition, recently helped raise funds and supported two medical missions with Operation Smile. Six people from Cydcor and its network sales offices provided assistance and comfort to families in Bolivia as their children received life-changing surgeries for cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. Additionally, Cydcor Vice Chairman Jim Majeski and son Gabe attended the recent Dominican Republic mission.
"During the past six years, it's been truly gratifying to everyone at Cydcor to help Operation Smile and support the noble work they do," said Majeski. "Being on site in the Dominican Republic as kids' lives were being transformed through surgery was simply incredible. We are known as a people helping people business and we are proud this extends around the globe."
The mission to Bolivia took place in March with top fundraisers from Cydcor and the company's network of independently owned sales offices in attendance. In Bolivia, 134 patients were operated on and 180 procedures were performed.
The Dominican Republic medical mission in April was attended by Majeski and his 12-year-old son Gabe. There were 74 patients operated on in the Dominican and 83 procedures were performed. In 2015, Majeski, along with his wife, philanthropist and entrepreneur Barbara Majeski, received the Founders Circle Award from Operation Smile in recognition of their dedication and contribution to the work of healing smiles worldwide.
The two recent trips to Bolivia and the Dominican Republic marked the fourth and fifth Operation Smile medical missions supported by Cydcor's fundraising and volunteer efforts. Previously Cydcor helped fund missions in Guatemala (2014), Mexico (2014) and Brazil (2012).
"At Cydcor, we can't imagine a day without a smile – it is that immediate connection with people – and we are humbled to help make smiles possible through the work of Operation Smile," said Cydcor President Vera Quinn. "We offer sincere thanks to the team members who staffed the missions and are grateful for the continued role we can play in helping people through Operation Smile."
Cydcor's fundraising totals for Operation Smile have been primarily achieved through the annual Day of Smiles event which includes a variety of fundraising efforts across the US, Canada, and UK. Cydcor plans to hit the $1 Million fundraising milestone by the end of 2016.
This year's Day of Smiles events will take place June 25th and 28th. More than 4,000 sales representatives and Cydcor corporate staff will again go door-to-door, face-to-face to speak about Operation Smile's purpose and the opportunity to help fund additional medical missions.
