WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Feb. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cydcor, the leading provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams, joins the ranks of the highest corporate givers to Operation Smile. In February, Operation Smile, a children's medical charity that provides free cleft lip and cleft palate reconstructive surgeries worldwide, recognized Cydcor as an official corporate ambassador.
"Our network of sales teams uses every interaction with a customer to build our clients' brands," said Vera Quinn, senior vice president of sales operations. "To watch that incredible focus and passion apply to raising funds for this very worthy cause has been amazing to witness."
In September 2010, Cydcor named Operation Smile as its corporate cause setting a fundraising goal of $150,000 to fund medical missions to remote locales in countries such as Peru, Cambodia and Rwanda, to name a few. Most recently, employees and friends of Cydcor's corporate office in Westlake Village competed in a bowl-a-thon raising $3,440 for the effort. The network of nearly 200 sales offices have contributed greatly through their own fundraising efforts. The company plans to reach its goal of $150,000 by May 2011.
"We are extremely grateful for the high level of commitment of Cydcor to help so many children around the world," said Kathy Magee, Co-founder and President of Operation Smile. "We are so pleased to count them among our valued corporate ambassadors."
Cydcor's Operation Smile ambassador, Barbara Majeski, summed up the company's motivation in supporting the charity: "Every three minutes, a child is born with a cleft condition. Our employees are leaders in their communities all over the country in supporting their communities through service, so extending that to such an important cause was natural. The level of their generosity and commitment to others is what is truly astounding."
