Gold For Kids is a charitable foundation founded by dentists that raises money for underprivileged children in the UK. It does this through the melting of discarded precious restorations used in dentistry and old jewellery.
After removing a precious crown or restoration, you inform the patient of its potential value and give them the option to donate it to children’s charities through Gold For Kids.
The first melt from 2018, which relied on the contribution of a handful of practices, went to Barnardo’s, the oldest children’s charity in the UK. They support vulnerable or neglected children from the early years until they reach adulthood, working hard and ensuring they have the confidence to reach their full potential and triumph in their lives.
Gold For Kids is continuously looking to expand and grow in different areas of the UK and the rest of the world. Whether you think you could take Gold For Kids to your area, have an idea that could contribute to the project, or you simply would like to donate your waste metal, get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting www.goldforkids.org.
