Maspeth Dentist: 2013 Good Deed Contest Winner Announced

Maspeth dentist, Dr. Khaimov launched a Good Deed Contest last year that rewards youths for performing good deeds.

She promptly received a large number of excellent essays about good activities performed. It was a close competition, but the winning essay went to 9-year-old Fiona Jacobson-Yang. She will receive her prize – a brand new Kindle, during an awarding ceremony on Feb 2nd 2014 at 12:30pm. The ceremony will take place at Dr. Khaimov’s office, located at 69-77 Grand Ave, Maspeth, NY 11378.

Fiona had always had long hair and when she found out about Locks of Love – a non-profit organization that provides hair pieces to children who are suffering from long-term medical hair loss — she decided to donate hers. She cut her hair short and sent it to “Locks of Love”. Later, after receiving her certificate in the mail, she decided that she will do this again next year and will donate her long hair to help more kids receive wigs.

“I felt so proud like I could do anything.” said Fiona.

But his is not all. Dr. Khaimov was overwhelmed with great essays and she decided to pick a 2nd place winner – 7-year-old Peter Max Audersch. He held a lemonade stand and at the end, he donated all of the collected money to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. He will receive a $25 “Toys R Us” gift card.

“We believe that children deserve a helping hand to make their own choice of what is right or wrong. I am delighted to inspire young people to make their own moral choices.”  Dr. Khaimov.
