The North American Craniofacial Family Conference held a conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, July 21-23, 2008. Metin's painting of children afflicted with Cranio facial disorders was used on the conference's poster and conference magazine. President of Ameri Face is Dr. David Reisberg, DDS, Clinic Director, University of Illinois Craniofacial Center, Illinois. The mission of AmeriFace is to provide information and emotional support to individuals with facial differences and their families and increase public understanding through awareness programs and education on behalf of those they serve. AmeriFace supports individuals whose facial differences are present at birth, such as cleft lip and palate, Apert, Crouzon, Treacher Collins and Moebius syndromes and vascular malformations, as well as other conditions. AmeriFace also serve those who have acquired facial differences as a result of illness, disease or trauma, such as stroke, cancer, accident and fire. Be sure to visit the AmeriFace website and also make a donation to help these individuals. www.ameriface.org

This is Metin with Dr. David Reisberg during the painting session with children afflicted with cranio facial disorders.

AmeriFace (formerly AboutFace USA) was founded in 1991 to provide educational and emotional support to persons born with craniofacial anomalies and their families. The organization soon expanded to also serve persons with acquired facial differences due to burns, trauma and disease, and in 2004 partnered with cleftAdvocate under the same corporate umbrella.

Services include referrals to qualified cleft/craniofacial teams, access to educational materials about these medical conditions, emotional support for affected individuals and their families, a campaign to promote general public awareness about facial differences and the networking of individuals and families for support purposes.

Metin Bereketli's paintings expose humanity to art lovers young and old. His work has been featured in Maison Francaise, Cosmopolitan, Cornucopia, Macro, Skylife, Donna, Science of the Mind, Decor, Mozaik, Vizion, Sotheby's, and the Smithsonian Institute National Museum of Art Library.

What many don't know about Metin is his tireless work for the Children's Leukemia Foundation and the National Conference on Women and HIV. In June, 1997, he received the Paramount Pictures, Triumphs Award for outstanding service to others. He work has been donated to raise funds for the Los Angeles Children's Hospital Research Institute, Leukemia Society of America, Motion Picture and Television Fund, UCLA Medical Center, Cedar-Sinai Medical Center, Y.W.C.A., Kaiser Permanente, Jack Webb Awards for the Los Angeles Police Community Education Fund, Young Musicians Foundation, American Diabetes Foundation, The Unit Way, The Visions Awards Stop Blindness Campaign, Switzer Center.

His work can be seen on such shows as, FRIENDS, FRASIER, VERONICA'S CLOSET, BECKER, CHICAGO HOPE, THE PRETENDER, FELICITY, PARTY OF FIVE and GENERAL HOSPITAL just to name a few.

He is shy about accepting such awards because he feels what he does needs to be done, "simple as that" as he puts it. Below are examples of his work that he has donated to these charities to raise funds. Also a few photo moments with certain celebrities I'm sure you will recognize. Cindy Crawford, Martin Landau, Sylvester Stallone, Tom Cruise, Kris Kristofferson, David Arquette, Dennis Franz, Lionel Richie, Andy Garcia, Bill Murray, Tom Selleck, John Salley, Jay Leno, Dustin Hoffman, Larry Hagman, Tori Spelling, Tony Danza, Jerry Ryan, Tony Morrison, Jimmy Kimmel, Mike Farrell from MASH, Rosario Dawson, Pierce Bronsan, Lou Rawls, Ben Kingsley, Nicolette Sheridan, Joe Mantegna, Dom Deluise, Magic Johnson, Michael Cooper, Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Gene Simmons, Meatloaf, Leeza Gibbons, Angie Dickinson, Jon Voight, Mary Hart, Hattie Winston and Judge Ito. And last, a photo with kids suffering from leukemia, who he regularly has over at his studio to teach them painting.

"Thank You" for being you Metin, for helping so many and especially children!
