My name is Mariella Marfori. My siblings and I are currently working on a service project that we have created called Smiles for Miles. Our goal is to provide educational materials, toothbrushes, dental floss, and toothpaste to 1,595 students of Calauan Central Elementary School in the Philippines. May we ask your help to achieve this goal?
