Edit: Since I passed my initial conservative goal of $350 for just the extractions, (thank's Dick, Chan, Ken, and Michelle,) I've upped the goal to $1050 to hopefully also cover the cost of partial dentures as well.
Note: I didn't realize when I made the video that the minimum donation is $5, GoFundMe charges 2.9% + 30 cents for each donation, which would mean that if even you COULD donate $1, I would only get 67 cents from it, (which is probably why $5 is the minimum.)
I found myself googling how painful it is to pull your own teeth out, and plotting how I might go about doing so.
Hi my name is Adam, and I've never really had a smile I could be proud of. More than 15 years without consistent dental care has left be minus 4 teeth at the age of 29, soon to be minus 3 more.
I need help.
I need $154.95 to cover the cost of an Avia discount dental plan. With the Avia plan extractions will only cost $60. With the 3 extractions that I need, that brings the minimum cost to $334.95.
I had a much loftier goal of $2000 when I started this campaign, and even that was a far cry short of the $8000 that the dentists quoted me. Since apparently chewing is a luxury, the least I can hope for is not to be in pain anymore. I've gone from about 6 ibuprofen a week, to 6-8 a day and occasionally sobbing in the corner.
Any amount that you can donate is greatly appreciated, and even if you can't afford to help, or feel your money is better spent helping someone else, please consider liking and sharing this campaign with others who may be willing and/or able to so.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask, and I will try my best to answer them.
Thank you :)
