Greenwich mom raises money for Operation Smile with 'Smile Collection'

Posted: Updated:
GREENWICH -

A Greenwich mom is paying it forward through her local shop - the Perfect Provenance.

Lisa Lori is the mother of three boys born with a rare condition called facial paralysis.

Proceeds from her shop's "Smile Collection" will directly benefit Operation Smile.

Her family also launched the Three Little Bears Initiative. The group hand delivers teddy bears to children receiving facial surgery.

"I think mothers are natural caregivers, and they're always such giving people. But I know in my own circumstance, it was kind of easy to focus on our challenges, and what was so great when we were introduced to Operation Smile is it lets you see outside of your own world," says Lori.

Since 2010, the Lori family has helped raise over $2.5 million for Operation Smile.
