18 Aug The DentalSPA in Headlines for Random Act of Kindness
Random Act of Kindness campaign
The team at The DentalSPA has been making waves in the Dubai media for being the first organisation in the UAE to take part in the Random Act of Kindness campaign (www.raknominations.org) that is sweeping the globe.
Last week, led by Dr Amer, they distributed more than 200 free dental cleaning kits to labourers working on a construction site just behind Jumeirah Beach Road after being inspired by the online campaign started by a young South African guy, Brent Lindeque.
Although the feel-good campaign has caught on across several continents, The DentalSPA is the first to really get on board in the UAE and aims to shine a spotlight on the potential of the movement.
Handing out dental kits to those perhaps not in a position to spend money on health care seemed the logical thing to do. And as you can see from our pics, the reception from the workers was amazing – which just goes to show that any Random Act of Kindness can make a big difference in people’s lives!
We wanted to do something meaningful to assist people in our community and it seemed a good idea to play to our strengths as a health provider,” said Dr Amer.
And the local media soon picked up on The DentalSPA’s actions with Dubai Radio 1 (104.1FM) covering the initiative in its prime time early evening news yesterday!
After the success of the dental kit handout, the team are planning more imaginative community giving projects – and urge others to do the same in the RAKNominations spirit.
And don’t forget to get involved yourself and tell us about it!
