Like the past few Januaries, we’ve dedicated this month to Global Dental Relief (GDR). During The Everything Event, We’re donating 10 percent of every lighting and mirror sale to the Denver-based charity to fund clinics halfway around the world providing children dental care—many for the first time in their lives.
A few years ago we were introduced to two of GDR’s amazing volunteers from Columbus, Ohio: mother and daughter, Marilyn and Jennifer Miller. They discovered GDR while shopping our store at Polaris Towne Center during a lighting event and a similar giving campaign supporting GDR. Jennifer, a dentist, and Marilyn, a hygienist, immediately pocketed the information we had on-hand and reached out to GDR for more information. Before they knew it, they found themselves en route to Nepal to work their first clinic with GDR.
Today, the two have been to Nepal and Guatemala volunteering with GDR, and have treated hundreds of children. We recently chatted with Jennifer about her globetrotting.
