Thank you,
for your powerful expressions of humanitarian outreach and personal commitment to making a positive difference in the world!

Tremendous thanks to everyone who helped make the 2010 Decade of Smiles event a success! As of today, we’ve raised over $33,000 to help our volunteers provide dental care, supplies, and education about disease prevention to under-served populations in developing nations and locally. It will also help our volunteers provide opportunities for humanitarian outreach to our school children allowing them to experience the joy and esteem building effect of helping others. We couldn’t have done it without you!
