Smiles for Life is a wonderful organization that I need to put on your radar. If you are someone who gets their teeth whitened, then this is a great way to participate in a social good project happening between March and June. The organization has raised over $40 million over the last 20 years for a variety of children’s charities and now you can get involved. Here’s how!
What Is Smiles For Life?
Every March through June, hundreds of participating dentists across the country whiten people’s teeth and donate 100% of the proceeds to the Smiles For Life Foundation. The money raised helps seriously ill, disabled, and underprivileged children all over the world. Proceeds in the past have been donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, Feed the Children, Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation and many more.
To find out what dentists near you participate in the program, click here and plug in your zip code. A new page will load showing you a list of every available dentist in your region who has signed up to be a part of this great cause. I just love this idea!
100% of Proceeds Are Donated To Charity
The Smiles For Life Foundation is proud of this campaign because of the impact that it has had on communities around the world. You might be wondering how it all works, though? Right? How does this campaign earn money? Well, Ultradent (makers of Boost in-office teeth whitening and Opalescence® take-home trays) donates ALL of the teeth whitening supplies, and participating Crown Council dentists donate ALL of their time to whiten teeth during the campaign. Together, they offer professional teeth whitening services at substantially reduced prices (donations) with 100% OF THE PROCEEDS GOING TO THE FOUNDATION TO HELP KIDS’ CHARITIES.
If you have plans to schedule your teeth whitening appointment between March and June, why not do it with a participating dentist? You will still get the great service that you’d expect from a professional. Your teeth will still come out whiter and brighter… but something else will happen when you visit a participating dentist. You will help children in need. Such a great way to give back!
