A unique way to help children this holiday season
Yes, we are in the holiday season already! As we approach Thanksgiving, I am trying to balance my work and social life and consider a way to help others in a meaningful way. As you most likely know, I have always try to keep children needs close to my heart and to help those less fortunate. Thousands of children in
Southern California suffer needlessly from real pain resulting in lost hours from school and from time focusing on the joy of youth – all due to problems with dental care. Sadly, many of these children can not afford the oral health needed and suffer greatly as a result. This year I have decided to join Healthy Smiles, an organization dedicated to solving these problems. They, along with others have a fun way to help these children through a fund raiser called “ride for a dream!”
On November 12, 2015, Healthy Smiles for Kids of Orange County will participate in The Carousel of Possible Dreams at Disneyland in an attempt to fund their dream of increasing prevention services throughout the community. This year our team goal is $25,000!
Healthy Smiles for Kids of Orange County Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease, resulting in 51 million lost school hours each year. With one in three elementary school students screened by Healthy Smiles for Kids of Orange County showing visible tooth decay, Orange County is truly facing an oral health epidemic. Healthy Smiles’ prevention program consists of two smile mobileunits that visit approximately 105 public schools throughout Orange County. A trip to the smile mobile consists of a visual dental screening, fluoride varnish, and oral health education. On average, Healthy Smiles screens about 400 children a week.
I, along with 8 other dedicated and enthusiastic colleagues, have taken on the challenge to ride the King Arthur Carrousel at Disneyland 50 times to help Healthy Smiles meet their $25,000 goal. To support, simplyclick on the link below!
