A REASON TO SMILE's Fundraiser:

Giving Playa Gigante, Nicaragua A Reason to Smile

BENEFITING: A REASON TO SMILE

THE STORY:

A Reason to Smile (ARTS) is preparing to expand its horizons to Latin America!

Although the tiny town of Playa Gigante (nestled at the end of a long dirt road on the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua) is expanding rapidly due to tourism, the community still lacks a dentist. The majority of the people cannot afford to see the nearest dentist (located about 45 minutes away by car), so they go years without cleanings, waiting for the occasional dental brigade that might pass through.

ARTS is excited to have the opportunity to partner with Project Wave of Optimism (WOO) - an international NGO located in Gigante - to provide long-term dental care and dental hygiene education to the community by setting up dental facilities in the community health center. Our goal is to raise $4,000 in 1 month in order to purchase dental equipment and supplies, which will allow for cleanings, fillings, and surgical extractions. This is a giant leap for ARTS for the new year and we are asking for your support to make it a success!
