Freedom Day USA was born out of an idea to give back to the Military and their families who sacrifice so much for our country. Dr Bob Martino, a successful dental entrepreneur and founder of Freedom Day walks us through the history, mission and vision of Freedom Day USA. The first year of Freedom Day, over $4,000,000 worth of free services was donated to the members of the military and their families. The next year, over 1000 businesses participated including businesses not in the dental or healthcare industries.
This year, Dr Martino’s goal is that even more businesses participate and that eventually Freedom Day becomes a national holiday, similar to Mother’s and Father’s Day. In addition, they launched Random Acts of Freedom using the power of Social Media to show our appreciation of the Military.
