I am thrilled to be a part of the Champions For Kids Special Service project.
Check out their site for Simple Service Projects on helping children in need in your community. Gather your family, friends, and co-workers to provide toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other dental care items for children in your community! Give the dental care items that you collected to an organization in your community that serves children (like a school, religious organization, or nonprofit) so that kids in your community can celebrate with healthy smiles and happier lives!
Our game plan is to go gather our family, friends, and co-workers to provide toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other dental care items for children in our community. The motive for Champions for Kids is to have us give the dental care items that we collected to an organization in the community that serves children (like a school, religious organization, or nonprofit) so that kids in your community can celebrate with healthy smiles and happier lives.
My first thought was a little boy who is in around third grade to donate some of my items to. I know he would greatly appreciate a gift basket with some dental items to get him off to a great start for school. I also plan on donating to our local Food Shelf. I am more than excited to share this with you guys at the end of the week. We headed to Walmart to pick up some items.
I was on a mission to pick up the Arm & Hammer Spinbrush toothbrushes. They had a huge selection I was pretty impressed but a little lost at the same time. Did you know some of these staggering facts?
- Over 19% of children ages 2-19 have untreated cavities. A child’s complete preventive dental program should include fluoride, at least twice-daily brushing, wise food choices, and regular dental care.
- Tooth decay remains one of the most common diseases of childhood. Children living in poverty suffer twice as much tooth decay as their more affluent peers, and their disease is more likely to go untreated.
- The daily reality for children with untreated oral disease is often persistent pain, inability to eat comfortably or chew well, embarrassment at discolored and damaged teeth, and distraction from play and learning.
My kids are all grown so the products they now have for little children is so awesome. This is a pretty nice selection to choose from and educate myself.
There are also a lot of rinsing products that have added nutrients, don't remember this stuff when my kids were little. They carry the same sort of Spinbrush for the adults, it would be fun to brush with your child, both of you 'spinning' :-)
I found the right amount of products for our family to donate and added them to the cart then went looking for my hubby to continue our shopping. You can see my whole shopping experience at my Google+ profile.
I am looking forward to sharing my next post with you on the folks I donated to next week. If you decide to be one of the Champions for Kids, please go to www.championforkids.com/simple. You can get involved and make a difference, you just have to start.
Our grocery cart is filled twice a week with an incredible amount of food and toiletries, I am more than thrilled to get to take part with such an awesome Simple Service project #SpinBrushCFK
