Hi, I'm Chuck. I have been in the construction industry for 40+ years managing all types of new construction as well as remodeling. I am now the captain and operations manager of our sailboat life as well as the social director and main contact for Sailing 4 Smiles. I love traveling, talking to people, making new friends and helping any way I can. If you want to connect give me a call!
Hi, I'm Heidi. I am a registered dental hygienist (RDH) and have been practicing for the past 15 years. I am licensed in Colorado and the USVI. I am also an early childhood educator and love working with children. I also love to travel, explore, create, learn and teach. My husband and I combined our strengths and expertises to form Sailing 4 Smiles, a unique dental charity dedicated to children.
We obtained our 501c3 designation for Sailing 4 Smiles in August 2019, left our jobs and set out on Mingus, our 36' Cape Dory sailboat. We sail to our destinations, visit the local preschools and elementary schools that are in need and deliver a fun, hands-on dental presentation as well as give out toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and sand timers. We have been to 7 Head Start centers on the east coast of FL and SC as well as 14 primary schools in the Bahamas and have visited with over 3200 children so far.
Your donations enable us to purchase dental products and teaching aids for the children. Sign up for a recurring donation or make a one time donation. Recurring donations allow us to better plan future school visits. One time donations can help a child smile today.
100% of your donation directly supports Sailing 4 Smiles and our outreach to children in need.

During a trip to Hopkins Belize we stopped to visit with the kids at Holy Family RC school and give away toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and a little dental education. This visit was what started Sailing 4 Smiles on its path to what it is today. Here is a link to our video:
On our way south on the ICW we were invited to attend a special meeting of America's Boating Club Little River and present to the members what we were doing at their local Head Start centers. It was such a hit and we were able to raise $250. as well as toothbrush and toothpaste donations. We later took these donations, purchased more childrens toothbrushes and toothpaste at the local Dollar Tree and gave them all out to the children at Long's and Green Sea Head Start Centers.
Larry Stoddard, Membership Chair of America's Boating Club Colorado contacted us while we were in the Bahamas and had such glowing things to say about Sailing 4 Smiles he published this wonderful article in their Colorado newsletter. We are scheduled and so excited to visit and present Sailing 4 Smiles to America's Boating Club Colorado!
