Welcome my friend!
Here's my plan: offer outreach dentistry to Thailand. Here's what I need: liquid capital.
The story: I've been a dental student for 3 years and have worked with a non-profit outreach group, AYUDA, since beginning of my dental education. So far I have been fortunate enough to work dozens of clinics in California with this organization as well as 3 in Mexico and 1 previous, amazing clinic in Thailand. Our organization is hosting another clinic in Thailand this year as our international outreach project. We are well funded enough to organize the clinic, but not well enough to pay the costs of travel our students and doctors will incur.
Now you and I, we're both business oriented people. So here are my offers in exchange for your financial support. For membership in to $50+ "Gracious Donors" club I'll send you a hand written letter of appreciation. A letter so poetic and rewarding, you'll keep it at the foot of your bed in winter because it makes you feel warm inside. Once you break in to the $200+ "Honored Supporters" club, you upgrade to receiving a 4"x6" photo with the associated story written on the back. You get the story without the associated nagging mosquitoes and sweltering heat, amazing offer. A one-time contribution of $500+ earns you a personally selected trinket/item from the trip in addition to all of these previous incentives as you join the “Cornerstone Contributors” club. Finally, the "Diamond Unicorn" club starts at $1,000 and continues on in to the night sky. In return for joining this prestigious and inspirationally optimistic club I will personally produce and transport a life size paper cut-out of you and include it in no less than 15 pictures to earn your supreme and fantastic patronage.
When I travelled to Thailand 2 years ago, I was not prepared for the impact we were going to have on the community. For the first time in my life, I was able to take part in an organization that produced immediate, positive impact on hundreds of lives in only a handful of days. This year I am far more educated, far more capable, and every bit as excited to contribute. This website was instrumental to my attendance in the past and I’m confident those visiting here will help me succeed again. Whether you have the good fortune to share with me financially, or the good spirit to share my cause and encourage others, I want to thank you for your support.
Should we surpass our goal to attend, any excess donation funds will be invested in to local Thai economies. I will not be keeping any of these funds for personal uses outside of this clinic.
