We are the Quayle Family and we didn’t want to wait any longer to make a difference in the world. There is never a “right time” to do something like this and it took us awhile to realize it and just go for it. We set off from home and ended up 3,000 miles away in Panajachel, Guatemala. This is our “home base” while we reach out to neighboring communities and provide much needed dental care. We have four kids (13, 10, 8 and 4 years old). We wanted to give our kids the opportunity to see the world and think beyond themselves. We wanted to give them a new vision for life. Some call us crazy, others call us dreamers. Regardless of what they say, we’re going for it.
5 Years ago our family began planning to accomplish a goal of moving to rural Guatemala for 10 months to provide this care. During this planning period we determined there was not a current non-profit organization to help us accomplish our unique goal. Because a path didn’t exist, we created our own. In 2017 we established Mason Gives. Mason Gives, Inc., a 501(c)(3), was established to help us accomplish our goal to provide comprehensive dental care for the children in impoverished areas everywhere but especially in the highlands of Guatemala. The name of the organization is derived after the nickname of the mascot for our pediatric dental offices, Mountain View Pediatric Dentistry. Our mascot is a large moose with a sparkling smile. His name is Mason. We wanted our patients families to be able to associate our fun-loving and charismatic moose with caring and giving to children all over the world. Our organizations goal is to provide care to impoverished areas of Guatemala and throughout the world for years to come.
Because we are donating our time as a family and have sought other professionals and corporations to donate their time, supplies and expertise we can promise 100% of your donations go directly to the dental needs of impoverished children. Mason Gives, Inc is a non-profit organization, 501(c)(3), recognized by the IRS. Therefore, 100% of your donations are tax deductible.
