they did it!

They did it!!!!


I am so proud of Moody's patients! They donated over 5,000 of their hard earned wooden nickels to build a well in Ethiopia. Because of their generous spirit- hundreds of Ethiopians will have access to safe, clean drinking water!

Each appointment his patients have the opportunity to earn up to 4 nickels. If they are on time, wear their t-shirt, have good dental hygeine, etc. They can save these nickels to earn various items- Target gift cards, TOMS shoes gift certificate, video games, webkins, spa certificates. Moody wanted to build a well with Charity:Water and give his patients the opportunity to participate if they wanted to- and participate they did! They could place their nickels in a large water jug and forgo getting an item for themselves. Once 5,000 nickels were raised, the office would give a $1 per nickel and pay for the well. He said it was the sweetest sound to be working on a patient and hear the clinck, clinck of nickels being dropped into the jug!
Way to go to everyone that played a part!

I LOVE that! I might mention that to my son's orthodontist. Kids are so generous and I think it's great to give them an opportunity to make those decisions.
