Each and every one of us are well equipped with a gift that gives back – YOUR SMILE – but just how far can one smile go? In a recent study, nine out of 10 people said seeing other people smile makes them happy and a staggering amount of people (95 percent) also agreed they would smile more often if they knew it could brighten someone’s day 
With that in mind, America’s favorite potato chip – Lay’s – is on a mission to spread millions of smiles and it all starts February 12. The new “Smile with Lay’s” initiative is reminding people from every corner of the nation that small actions like smiling have the power to do good – and for a cause! Specially designed bags featuring infectious smiles are hitting store shelves and, for every purchase of Lay’s specially designed bags, a donation will be made to Operation Smile, an international children’s medical charity dedicated to improving the health and lives of children and young adults worldwide who suffer from cleft conditions by providing access to safe surgical care
