Project Bright Smile

While we were in Russia this past May we were able to donate many items, among them were toothbrushes and toothpaste. The orphanage director was mostly excited about the toothbrushes. We were told that toothbrushes are hard to come by and are very much needed.
Imagine not having something as basic and simple as a toothbrush? This often leads to poor dental health and nutrition problems later in life. Something we take for granted is a rare treat for the orphans.

Proper dental hygiene is not a priority in orphanages. The effects of not brushing will start out minor but will become serious over time. Plaque build-up will cause a substantial discoloration of teeth, and gingivitis and cavities can occur.

For $10 you can provide one child with a toothbrush, toothpaste and soap. Our goal is to help improve the oral health and basic hygiene of these children. There are approximately 200 children in Russia that desperately need these basic necessities.
