Give Back A Smile

CNN.com had a story about a great program called "Give Back A Smile." Created by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry in 1999, Give Back A Smile matches domestic abuse survivors who suffered damage to their teeth due to their abuse and dentists who donate their time to repair the damage. I never thought of something like this being needed but now that I've heard about this program, it makes perfect sense. Repairing a survivors teeth would not only provide them a self-esteem boost because of the improved appearance but also because they no longer see the results of their abuse every time the look in the mirror.

Check out their web site if you'd like to learn more or make a donation and support their efforts.

Proverbs 13:1: "A wise son hears his father's instruction, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke."
