“Your life is your message to the world; make sure it’s inspiring.” -Jose Bello (Life Member)
The Life on Life Initiative has inspired so many people to look for needs in their local communities where they can serve. Many have said that this organized mission of helping others to achieve functional freedom through Life Leadership has activated in their hearts an even deeper hunger to want to make a difference in society. In essence, the Life on Life Initiative was the missing link in the chain of “setting people free,” and now there is nothing that can stop the company from reaching millions of people across the world.
John F. Kennedy once said, “If not us, who? If not now, when?” This quote encouraged some of the leaders in Florida to find a need in their local area to fill. What they found was a non-profit organization in Titusville, Florida, called the Smile Angel Foundation.
The Smile Angel Foundation is committed to improving the dental health and overall well-being of individuals less fortunate and in need of proper dental care and hygiene.
“Sherryl Worst (CEO/Founder) began the Smile Angel Foundation about 18 months ago. Prior to that she owned and operated her own dental clinic for 25 years. Sherryl came to a crossroads in her life when she realized that although she was gifted and talented to give smiles to people through her vocation, she knew there was an even greater need that tugged at her heart. Now Sherryl helps less fortunate adults and children who are unable to acquire the proper dental care necessary to maintain their individual health and well-being.” -Steve Duba (Life Member)
At first the participants started to collect needed items for the foundation such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, fluoride rinse, mini mouth washes and floss to donate in addition to monetary gifts. This alone was a blessing, but when these leaders found out that nearly 20,000 care packages were needed for a Back-to-School Campaign; they immediately jumped in and offered their time to help. The goal for Smile Angel Foundation’s campaign was to provide care packages for 96 Brevard County, Florida schools filled with dental products and educational material on proper oral hygiene, brushing, flossing and healthy eating for healthy smiles. These Life Members gave up a couple nights of their week to serve and stuff care packages as part of their Life on Life Initiative.
“I never realized how many kids there are in need in my own community. I am happy that I was able to leave a lasting impact for their future.” -Carolee Wagner (Life Member)
“This activity inspired us to do more acts of service, especially for those that cannot help themselves. Your life is your message to the world; make sure it’s inspiring.” -Jose and Namara Bello (Life Members)
Sherryl’s short term goal is to provide dental assistance for Brevard County and other counties that are in need in the state of Florida. However, she has a long-term goal to create a mobile dental clinic in order to provide an environment that offers timely services and increased access in order to reach more people who are in need of dental care throughout Florida.
“A huge Thank You to Life Leadership for your amazing partnership spreading our mission, donating and volunteering with the Smile Angel Foundation. Our work in our community wouldn’t be possible without the help and support of organizations like you who inspire giving to those in need each and every day. We are so very grateful!” Sherryl Worst
