Livingston High School Junior Organizes Smile Train Fundraiser at Infinity


LIVINGSTON, NJ — From 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Infinity in Livingston will donate 10 percent of all its proceeds to Smile Train, an international children’s charity that provides free cleft-repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care to children who struggle financially, thanks to Livingston High School junior Nicole Eisen, who spearheaded the event.

Eisen, an employee at Infinity, located at 21 E. Northfield Road, became involved with Smile Train because she was born with a cleft lip, but her family was able to afford her surgery. Now she is spearheading a fundraiser so that “these children and adults can get the right care that they desperately need to live a happy life.”

“It’s sad to feel different,” said Eisen. “It’s not very common for children in, let’s say Africa, to have a cleft lip and most of the time when they do have a cleft lip, parents have no idea what it is. It’s not really accepted in their society when someone looks different, and I don’t want anyone to have to feel like they don’t belong somewhere.”

Eisen thought her workplace be a good place to raise awareness because many of the shoppers are the same age as the children who would benefit from this fundraiser. She hopes that residents who visit the store to shop through its extensive jean and sweatshirt selection will contribute to the cause to help provide for surgeries and the proper care for these children.
