Signpost Just Up Ahead: Smiles Forever will reach our goal of treating 40,000 Bolivians in 2018!
I would like to sincerely thank each and every one of you who has sustained Smiles Forever'sground-breaking dental work in Bolivia these past 17 years. We can now change the headline to 'Provide Dental Care for 40,000 Bolivian Children!' Every one of your gifts helps ensure that we can go on helping our community with our upgraded dental clinic in Cochabama where we continue to give optimal care. We are excited to add out-patient treatment centers as we visit shelters and special needs group homes and orphanages.
Bolivian Children Sending you the Joy of the Season
New Recurring Donations to Smiles Forever'sGlobalGiving projects will receive 100% donations for amounts up to $200 with a 4-month commitment. This is the easy way to take a minute now to set up monthly payments. We especially invite our Smiles Forever supporters from our early days to return as faithful partners in this amazing dental charity.
The holiday season is upon us and another successful year at Smiles Forever is coming to a close. Our unique Sliver Diamine fluoride project for 350 children in the Chapare region is heading into its second year. Negotiations to take the Smiles Forever dental hygiene program to the University level are currently under way. The impoverished children for whom we are providing free dental care will reach over 40,000 this next year. We have contracted with over 30 other organizations of children in need. The last 17 years of commitment have made great changes in the lives of the children and young women of Bolivia.
As you are gathering with your friends and family during the holidays, please know just how much your kindness counts in giving better dental health to so many,
