Trick-or-Treating for Change

October 29th, 2010 · No Comments

I don’t know about you, but we can’t get enough of Halloween! Adorable kids in their cute, scary, and sometimes downright hilarious costumes. It’s a time for creativity and fun. What’s even better is that charities across the country are finding new ways to involve their communities in brotherly love, even on holidays like Halloween, which, truthfully, is known more as a time of tricking than a time of giving. But the National Children’s Oral Health Foundation is just one of the many wonderful and deserving organizations that are aiming to make change this Halloween season (pun intended)!

The National Children’s Oral Health Foundation (NCOHF) is dedicated to eliminating America’s number one chronic childhood illness: pediatric dental disease. Millions of children nationwide suffer from pain so severe they have trouble just being kids. Eating, sleeping, and even learning become difficult, and many suffer lifelong health complications as a result of untreated pediatric dental disease. The NCOHF provides vital financial, product, and technical support to a network of not-for-profit programs and volunteer dental professionals who deliver critical oral health services to underserved children.

The NCOHF has launched a new campaign called Trick or Treat for America’s Toothfairy, which encourages individuals, businesses, and dental professionals alike to change lives with change. Dressed as Toothfairies and, yes, Tooth Wizards, caring individuals will collect spare change to help the NCOHF provide at-risk children with the comprehensive dental care they deserve. Making Halloween about having fun and doing good in the community? That’s change we can get behind! For more information on how you can help the NCOHF this Halloween, visit www.ncofh.org.
