Sure, you have lots of reasons to be thankful this week (as we head into Thanksgiving) and throughout the holiday season. However, Anastasia Turchetta, RDH, is giving you a quick and easy way to show your thankfulness and help someone in need.
For every selfie written with #MHThankful on it loaded onto the Modern Hygienist Facebook page, Turchetta will donate $1 to Operation Smile, an international children's medical charity that performs safe, effective cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, and delivers postoperative and ongoing medical therapies to children in low- and middle-income countries.
“Way too often, we take for granted the ability to smile and eat,” said Turchetta, the editor for Modern Hygienist. “This year, I want to have Modern Hygienist subscribers and all dental hygienists to have a chance to help someone in need. Operation Smile is a wonderful charity and this is an easy way to support the amazing work they do. All it takes is a selfie and a hashtag.”
Note: Submit your selfie before 11:59 p.m. ET on November 30, 2014.
