Jase and Missy Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” fame have announced a fund to help children with cleft lip/palate. The Mia Moo Fund is named for young Mia Robertson, who recently underwent major cleft surgery and is gradually recovering.

Jessica Robertson shared an overview of the fund.

Part of the Mia Moo Fund’s mission is to raise awareness of cleft lip and cleft palate, which the Centers for Disease Control estimates affects more than 4,400 children each year.

    Wonderful. Between this and Operation Smile, a lot of kids can be helped.

  • GaryTheBrave

    I appreciate they want to help but why start their own fund? Why not just team up with the above mentioned Operation Smile or Smile Train?

    • Humanary Stew

      Because they have name recognition and already have a media presence. And maybe once they raise the money, it will go to these other groups.

    Great job Duck People!
