Has anyone here participated in a "Tour de Smiles" fundraising ride or other event? The events raise money for reconstructive surgery for indigent children through "Operation Smile".

I am not familiar with them and do not want to invest time and money until I can get some confirmation that they are a legitimate charity.

Yes, I've done some web searches and looked at their websites.
