“Sit in the cockpit with me- all the smells, noises and visuals experienced in a fighter jet - some Vietnam combat fights, some heartbreaking moments and some simply unforgettable flights. Come along and enjoy the ride” ~Captain Thomas F. Kane is longtime board member and supporter of Operation Smile. He has served as a member of the Operation Smile Board of Governors since 1991 and was Chairman of Operation Smile Board of Directors from 1998-2002. He has participated on missions to Vietnam, Nicaragua, and Jordan, and has sponsored a World Care Patient from Iraq to come to the United States to receive surgery too complicated to be performed in the mission setting.

Isabel Bloom is an Iowa-based handcrafted sculpture company that was founded by Isabel herself. She studied with American Master Grant Wood to create art that is simple, affordable and inspired by the world outside her window.
We carry on Isabel’s legacy in our Davenport, Iowa studio, handcrafting sculptures for home and garden. Each piece is cast and finished by hand, one at a time, using the process Isabel developed years ago.
Bloom sculptures make meaningful gifts for life’s significant moments, and often support important causes, such as American Picker Mike Wolfe’s commitment to Operation Smile.
This original handcrafted sculpture, Charlie’s Smile was created by Isabel Bloom artist, Donna Young, and is named for Mike’s own daughter, Charlie. “Making a difference through our child for other children is huge for us,” he says. “To have this partnership with Isabel Bloom is amazing. We are proud to be able to support handcrafted products from Iowa and give back to a great cause.”
Through “Charlie’s Smile”, Isabel Bloom will be making a contribution to Operation Smile in 2015.
