Never Not Funny and Jimmy Pardo are pleased to announce the success of the Fifth Annual Pardcast-a-Thon fundraiser to benefit Smile Train. The 13-hour webcast, which streamed live on Friday, November 29th, raised $140,935 and featured twenty-five all-star guests including Bob Odenkirk, Zach Galifianakis, Jack McBrayer, Patton Oswalt and soap opera star Jack Wagner.

To-date, the Pardcast-a-Thons have raised close to half a million dollars for Smile Train.

"We are thrilled with the success of this year's Pardcast-a-Thon and for the continued support from Jimmy Pardo and his fellow comedians," said Smile Train CEO Susannah Scahefer. "They are giving children around the world the greatest gift this holiday season - the opportunity for a new smile."

Fans who missed the live 2013 Pardcast-a-Thon can download the complete 13-hour video at www.pardcast.com for $19.99 beginning Friday, December 6th. Proceeds from the sales will benefit Smile Train, helping to make this a true Season of Smiles for children with clefts all over the world.

Smile Train is an international children's charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate. Millions of children in developing countries with unrepaired clefts live in shame, but more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing and speaking. Cleft repair surgery is simple, and the transformation is immediate. Smile Train's sustainable model provides training and funding to empower local doctors in 85+ developing countries to provide 100%-free cleft repair surgery in their own communities. To learn more about how Smile Train's sustainable approach means donations have both an immediate and long-term impact, please visit www.smiletrain.org.
