The more money we raise, the more places we can generate healthy smiles!

In order to accomplish

our dream of driving across the United States while generating

healthy smiles, we will simply need to cover

the costs of the basics

(gas, food, and lodging).

~$8,914

 

We also recognize that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We've researched many amazing cultural and educational opportunities

unique to each state

that we are hoping to experience.
