Local Giving Events on May 6th!

by Katie Carroll | Apr 16, 2014

Did you know that May 6th is a special day devoted to charities that are making a difference in our own neighborhoods?  Give Local Portland and Give Big (Seattle Foundation) are two one-day, online giving events on May 6th that benefit non-profits like MTI who are making a difference right in our backyards!  

As you know, Medical Teams International provides desperately-needed emergency dental care to local low-income adults and children in the United States - particularly the Pacific Northwest.  We also provide preventative dental health programs for children here. 

It would be incredible if you are able spread the word about these ONE-DAY events to your friends, family, and colleagues.  You will be helping us not only raise awareness of our local programs but also raise funds to care for those who most need it.



We are extremely grateful for your support.  And the people in your neighborhood who you are helping want to thank you for your kindness and generosity!  Check out these notes from children who are benefiting from our OR & WA preventative health presentations, and see more of their notes here.

"Thank you for teaching about flossing."

"I learned that brushing my teeth and flossing are very important because it takes all the germs out of my teeth and helps me live longer and protects it a lot.  Thank you, Tim & Cathy"


"Thank you, Tim and Cathy. I learned to floss every day.  I love you guys."
