Hello my name is Brianna and I am a 17 year old highschool senior. Ever since I was 11 years old my teeth have always been crooked and misaligned. I often dreamed of having straight and perfect teeth but as i got older I realized that i may have to settle for the mishapened teeth i have always had. after numerous visit to the orthodontist and dentist; they told me and my parents that our health insurance would only cover half the cost of traditional braces. my hopes and dream of ever getting braces were crushed. Thats why i am asking for your help in accomplishing my dream of getting braces for christmas. every dollar toward my goal is a step closer to my dream. if i reached my goal before my 18th birthday on jan 24 i would be forever grateful to every single person that helped me in my journey. so please while every other teenager is asking for iphones, tablets, game consoles, etc; just remember me, a teen girl who only wants braces for christmas.
