Real Change Mark's Dental Bills

That's our friend Mark Hankinson in the dentist chair! The guy to his ride is Jeff and the guy to his left is Scott. Mark sells the Real Change newspaper (Real Change exists to provide opportunity and a voice for low income and homeless people while taking action for economic, social and racial justice) near the Starbucks at California and Fauntleroy in West Seattle. That is how Scott and Jeff met Mark over the past five years. Mark has needed some extensive dental work and Scott and Jeff have helped out financially with the initial appointments. We are fortunate that Dr. Christine Kircner and Office staff will be providing some of the services pro bono. They are terrific people! We cannot say enough about all of their compassion and care. We all are reaching out to our friends, family and colleagues to help fund the rest of the dental work needed. Mark is a very hard worker, selling his papers every day early in the morning with a great, positive attitude. Mark's spirits have been uplifted with the completion of his first dental cleaning appointment. Please join us in helping Mark get further dental care, such as fillings, crowns , etc. thank you! And thank Dr. Christine Kirchner and her office staff for their contributions to this good cause!

PS Here is the Twitter feed from Dr. Kirchner's office:

Meet our patient Mark. Mark stands outside of Starbucks on the corner of Fauntleroy & California Avenue every single morning selling the Real Change Newspaper. Real Change is an award-winning weekly newspaper that provides immediate employment opportunity.
Real Change Values
•Courage: Telling the truth and taking risks
•Community: Fostering healthy relationships across differences
•Creativity: Pushing beyond the obvious to promote change
•Compassion: Treating everyone with respect and accepting them as they are
•Integrity: Doing what we say and taking responsibility for our mistakes

Two Starbucks customers visit this location every morning & befriended Mark. The two customers came together not knowing each other and decided to help him. He has some severe dental needs & doesn’t have the means to see a dentist. The two kind hearted good citizens will be paying for all of Mark’s dental care and our office will be matching their contribution. There are GOOD people in this world. Spread LOVE & POSTIVE VIBES ALL DAY EVERY DAY & IT WILL COME BACK TO YOU! #REALCHANGE #GOODVIBESONLY #SPREADLOVE #HAPPYMONDAY #GIVEBACK #SELFLESSACTSOFKINDNESS
Thank you so much to these two incredible human beings for making a difference in the world!
