Johanna Johnson, the president of Tsawwassen Interact Club had the idea of kids here helping kids far away when she heard of Jill Moore's medical mission to China.
"We saw this as a perfect opportunity to do something positive with children in Tsawwassen" said a justifiably proud Johanna, "young people taking international action is what Interact is all about. Now families here will directly help over a hundred families in China."

They convinced students at Beach Grove, English Bluff and SDSS to collect 2,500 toothbrushes to help the people in remote Harbin, China.

It was all to support dental hygienist and Rotarian Jill Moore as she readies for the 15 day mission.

The trip is Jill's second with Alliance For Smiles a volunteer organization dedicated to bringing medical relief to China. "These toothbrushes will fill our supply container to the brim", she said, "I am so grateful for the generous support from the Interact Club who involved hundreds of children and their families."
