Facebook Campaign Brings Dental Care To Underserved

A Causes campaign on Facebook is raising funds to purchase mobile equipment for charity dental clinics 17 states.

If you’re on Facebook, you can help underserved Americans get dental care.

A Causes campaign on Facebook, launched by Delta Dental Companies and Social Reality, a social media philanthropy firm, is raising funds to purchase mobile equipment for the charity dental clinics of America’s Dentists Care Foundation and America’s Missions of Mercy, which provides care to underserved dental patients in 17 states.

Since this charity first started having events in 2000, dental volunteers have provided care to more than 100,000 people, valued at more than $50 million.

For every person who joins the cause — already 41,000 Facebookers strong and growing — Delta Dental is donating $1 and is matching every dollar raised up to $100,000.

Social Reality represents popular Facebook, Web and mobile applications, with a network that reaches more than 200 million, the organizations says. Ford, The Coca Cola Company, Kellogg’s, Brown Forman, Bank of America, Proctor & Gamble, Nestle, Purina and General Mills have all participated in Social Reality’s efforts.
