With a baby born with a cleft lip or palate every three minutes, this campaign will help the global non-profit organization Smile Train provide free care to children in need around the world. All people have to do is browse the web using the Trueheart search engine.
The company donates 80% of its profits to charities around the world.
“Literally, you can research things like you normally do, and in doing so, you donate not just to this charity, but to five others,” says Green. “Everyone is already online and searching on their phone or tablet. So it’s like, why not use the search engine that will donate to charity? “
As a father of four himself – Green shares Noah, 8, Bodhi, 7, and Journey, 4, with ex-wife Megan Fox and Kassius, 19, with Vanessa Marcil – the Beverly Hills, 90210 star says “everything hits home more”.
“It’s incredibly debilitating for the kids. And as they get older, if it’s not fixed and they become malnourished, it can have a huge impact on their bodies, their self-confidence and their social skills – their entire lives, ”Burgess adds.
“If we can help more kids, change their smiles and help them feel better about themselves so they can confidently move on in life, then yes, we want to be a part of it! “
Although they’ve tried to keep their romance low-key before, Green and Burgess admit they couldn’t say no to coming together for such an incredible cause.
“For me, the idea is to reach as many people as possible. And if we can both reach a lot more people than each of us, then why wouldn’t we want to do it together? Green bursts out. “Plus, I like spending time with her.”
Burgess adds: “This is our first opportunity to do something like this together. I’m really excited for it to be for the kids and to help people smile. I mean, everyone needs a reason to smile after what we’ve all been through in the last 12 months.
With all this talk of smiles, it’s hard not to notice how the couple are making each other smile. “We smile a lot every day,” says Burgess.
“He tends to make me laugh quite often. “
