In response to the COVID-19 global health pandemic, GLO Good has partnered with SONSIEL (the Society of Nurse Scientists Innovators Entrepreneurs & Leaders) to launch an urgent call-to-action to move supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE), including vital respirator masks, to healthcare providers on the frontline care for COVID-19 patients. The SONSIEL program is called SHARE (Strengthen Healthcare Ability to Respond to Emergencies). Through SONSIEL’s SHARE initiative, they are raising funds to directly purchase large quantities of PPE supplies to directly give to nurses and other healthcare professionals on the frontlines. Together, GLO Good and SONSIEL are determined to rally the nation behind our healthcare heroes to equip them with the PPE supplies they need to stay safe.
In January 2013, GLO Good, in partnership with Geoffrey Canada, joined more than 300 kids (ages K-12) at the Harlem Children’s Zone in New York City to host a special themed event, “Brush Up Smile Zone!” The event included a variety of fun and educational activities that spread the message about the importance of good oral health as it relates to overall health.
In 2013, GLO Good joined forces with Care Harbor, a Los Angeles based clinic that provides free medical, dental and vision care, prevention education and resources, and follow up care, to those in need.
GLO Good joined hundreds of volunteers to provide dental care and education to the 3,000+ patients that showed up to receive free care, the majority of which listed dental issues as their chief complaint.
GLO Good’s first stop was Rwanda in 2010, where Dr. Levine and Stacey Levine partnered with Foundation Rwanda to provided oral health screenings, hygiene tools, and education to 220 women and their children born of rape during the 1994 Rwandan Genocide.
While in Rwanda, Dr. Levine and Stacey met Agathe, a woman who was raped, and her husband and family killed, during the 1994 genocide. Her teeth were violently removed by machete, robbing her of the ability to smile, sing, or enjoy life. Dr. Levine and Stacey gave Agathe her smile back — not only giving her the ability to sing again, but restoring her self-confidence. As she beamed with love and happiness after seeing her smile for the first time in the dental operatory, the GLO Good mission was born.
Trained medical and dental professionals give people the knowledge of how to take charge of their health and the proper tools to do so
Provide access to oral health and medical care , in addition to much needed supplies and tools, in underserved communities
Grow leaders to have a sustainable impact on the oral and systemic health in their communities
Change and improve people's smiles and inspire people to smile more often because everyone deserves to smile
"Overwhelming! This is an awesome experience, to "Let Love Rule" in such a special way. GLO Good, you're special! The people of Eleuthera greatly appreciate the great contribution of dentistry and dermatology. God Bless You!"
“It is of the utmost importance to me that the people in my community receive free first class health care. Moreover, it is even more of a priority that they receive the knowledge about their bodies and ultimately how to take care of them. Unfortunately, much of the food that is offered here on the island can lead to health problems. This, combined with poor education and lack of proper health care, shows me there is still a lot of work to do to change the situation. This is just the beginning.”
"Glo Good and Stacy and Dr. Jonathan Levine were instrumental in helping Agathe, one of the Foundation Rwanda mothers, get a brand new set of teeth in 2010. Agathe's teeth were knocked out after after a man wielding a machete during the 1994 genocide attached her and took away her smile at the age of fourteen. I cannot even begin to tell you how profound it is to watch a human being get their smile back when you know the atrocities they endured. In addition to helping Agathe, GLO Good screened and provided oral health tools and education to over 220 Foundation Rwanda women and children, all survivors of the 1994 genocide."

"GLO Good Foundation was a valued participant in our 2013 Care Harbor free clinic, providing comprehensive oral health education and helping to treat patients alongside our dental volunteers. Dental care is a leading need among the thousands who come to our free clinic events, and we are very grateful to GLO Good for helping to make quality dental care accessible to those in need."
