We are a 501(C)3 non-profit on a mission to help underserved youth build self-esteem through healthy living, teamwork, and sports.
2019 In Review
In 2019 we were able to provide 13 “Yes I Can!” scholarships so that undeserved children could attend summer camp in North Carolina. Campers were able to experience a sleep-away camp at YMCA’s Camp Hanes or day camp at 1870 Farm Camp and Duke’s Roblox Studio Game Design Camp. No matter the location, thanks to your generosity we were able to provide unforgettable summer experiences to our “Yes I Can!” scholarship recipients.
What’s Happening in 2020?
In 2020 we will be sending children from each community in which we have a Happy Tooth featuring My Orthodontist office to summer a week of sleep-away camp. We have 11 offices throughout North Carolina in the following locations:
- Chapel Hill
- Mount Airy
- Roanoke Rapids
- Wake Forest
Dr. Larry and Dr. Jin Yi have always believed in creating opportunities for youth to succeed and reach their full potential. They realized that an important part of this process was providing food security and healthy lifestyle choices particularly to those in need. They believed that creating a local organization that could also have an impact nationally would be the best use of their time and resources.
This came to fruition in the form of The Happy Tooth Foundation, which empowers youth and addresses food insecurity with its “Yes I Can” Summer Camp Scholarships and Plow + Share Farm. Their hope is that the Foundation will continue to expand so that it may positively affect as many youth as possible.
