BENEFITING: DENTAL CARE FOR CHILDREN
ORGANIZER: DENTAL CARE FOR CHILDREN
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2012
Have you ever had a painful, excruciating toothache and canceled everything to go to the dentist? We've all been there. But what if you couldn't?
What if you had to live with that pain day in and day out because you couldn't afford to go to the dentist? You couldn't sleep, you couldn't eat... you would be miserable. Sadly, that is the reality for many children across the world that can't afford to go to the dentist. No one should have to live with this pain, especially a child.With your help we can fix this and alleviate the pain for these children.
As many of you may know, I recently began working for the charity Dental Care for Children. The help and relief that this organization provides for children in Haiti, Mexico and Southern California is truly remarkable. With the help of local volunteers, dentists and dental students, this group makes about 12 trips a year to these locations to set up free dental clinics for these children. At these clinics they are able to help upwards of 250 children. That's 250 children that no longer have to suffer through the pain of an excruciating tooth ache and the disease and illness that comes along with it.
Please help me meet my goal and help this organization continue to do amazing things for these children. WIth your help we can restore the smiles and hopes for these children!
THANK YOU for your support!!!

Join Team Dental Care for Children (DCFC) and help give children in Southern California, Haiti and Mexico the gift of a healthy smile!
There are countless organizations in the underdeveloped world that take care of basic health, education, clean water and so forth, and without doubt they are needed. But there are few organizations that take care of the other most basic need of underprivileged kids - their teeth. Pain, decay and infections all combine to make a child's life uncomfortable at best, unbearable at worst.
Today, Dental Care for Children is the most successful 501(c)3 organization filling this crucial need. Dental Care for Children puts on free dental clinics in Southern California, Haiti and Mexico for children in these impoverished areas who can't afford dental care. With the help of local volunteers, dentists and dental students we make about 12 service trips a year to these locations to restore the smiles and hope of these children.
