Vanessa and Don Trump Jr. hosted anevening of shopping, fun and celebrations to support their favoritecharity, Operation Smile, an organization dedicated to changing thelives of children with life-altering facial deformities worldwide last Monday at Manhattan toy emporium FAO Schwarz.  The event was hosted by Trump Magazine to celebrate the couple’s 29th s.

Thecouple urged friends and other specially invited guests to purchase their holiday gifts during theevening in lieu of bringing  presents and arranged for apercentage of all proceeds from this event to be donated to OperationSmile.

Visit CBS ShowBuzz for a video of the couple at the party.

Last month, the couple announced that they are expecting their first child early next summer.  We’re told that one of Vanessa’s purchases included a Silver Cross Classic Sleepover carriage.  This $700 stroller can be used as a pram, reversible handled stroller, and bassinet.  Its ventilated mattress makes it very safe to use for overnight sleeping and even comes with a stand.  Click read more for more info on the Classic Sleepover.

To make a donation to Operation Smile, visit their site.  Other things you can do include buying Sephora’s Operation Smile Lip Baume- $3.75 of the $5 purchase price goes to Operation Smile.  Also, Jessica Simpson’s BFF Ken Paves donates 2% of profits from his Pav├ęs Professional Flawless: Shine-in Care for Damaged Hair line to Operation Smile (available at Walgreens).  If you’re thirsty and want to help, when you buy one of AriZona Beverage Company’s Lemon Tea, Green Tea and Sweet Tea drinks, the company donate 5% of profits.

Here is the Silver Cross Classic Sleepover carriage in its various modes.  I saw this stroller in person at the ABC Kids Show in September and thought it was very cool.  It’s got a really smooth ride because of the foam tires.  You can use it from birth through 44 pounds.  Due to its heavy weight (39 pounds), I don’t recommend it if you have to bring it up and down stairs on a regular basis or want to bring it on public transportation.  This of course won’t be an issue for Vanessa and Don because you know they have a chauffeur!  (Another celeb mom using the Classic Sleepover is Heidi Klum!)

My Communications Disorders teacher here in Cleveland is part of Operation Smile. She brought in some incredible pictures and stories. She’s been all over the world…she mostly works with cleft palate patients. Great organization.
