Balsam Hill and Operation Smile announced the #CelebritiesforSmiles campaign today that will auction ornaments autographed by celebrities from fashion, television, film, music sports, and media on http://www.celebritiesforsmiles.com December 9-16th. Balsam Hill, the leading online retailer of premium artificial Christmas trees and upscale home decor products, and Operation Smile, an international medical charity serving children and families in more than 60 countries, have partnered this holiday season to bring surgeries to children with cleft lip and cleft palate around the world.

Balsam Hill (http://www.balsamhill.com) has pledged $25,000 to Operation Smile and donated ornaments from their new, high-quality home decor collection. More than 30 one-of-a-kind holiday ornaments, autographed by celebrities including John Berman, Billy Bush, Alisyn Camerota, Chris Cuomo, Roma Downey, Michael Franti, Kit Hoover, Kevin Jonas, Chris and Peyton Lambton, Zachary Levi, Adam Levine, Jay Manuel, Jack McGee, Holly Robinson Peete, Missy Peregrym, Michaela Pereira, Gavin Rossdale, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Michael Strahan, Michaela Pereira, Elaine Turner, Meredith Vieira, Kate Walsh, Mark Wahlberg, Pharrell Williams, the cast of Days Of our Lives and the hosts of The Doctors will be available on eBay or at http://www.CelebritiesForSmiles.com from December 9-16.

The delicate mouth-blown glass ornaments were made by the finest artisans in Europe and are approximately 4” in diameter. Each red, gold, silver or green ornament has been hand-signed by a celebrity.

“Improving lives for children around the world is a wonderful gift to be able to give,” said Balsam Hill CEO Thomas Harman. “Owning a Celebrities for Smiles ornament is a wonderful annual reminder of the joy that you can not only give, but receive during the holidays by helping others.”

“It is such a pleasure to partner with Balsam Hill because they are incredibly motivated and dedicated to helping give smiles to these children around the world,” said Dr. Bill Magee, CEO and Co-Founder of Operation Smile. “They truly understand how incredible it is to change the life of a child forever – a child who was been born into the world with no hope. Our work wouldn’t be possible without the support of companies like Balsam Hill, and with the celebratory spirit of the holidays, what better gift to give than the gift of a smile.”

All money raised by the sale of the ornaments will be donated to Operation Smile (http://www.operationsmile.org), a non-profit medical charity that mobilizes a world of generous hearts to heal children's smiles and transform lives across the globe. To date, Operation Smile has provided over 220,000 free surgical procedures around the world to children with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
