Remember last week when I wrote about participating in the Champions for Kids Simple Service project? Today I am going to show you my donation! We had a blast picking out the toothbrushes and toothpaste to give away (you can see that on google plus ). As you can see above we picked out the girl style Arm and Hammer Spinbrushes and toothpaste! I learned so much through this project about the needs of children these days and the importance of tooth care.
Here are just some quick facts from the CFK website:
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.
That is why I donated the toothcare items to a Spencer Elementary teacher. I knew that she would know of the needs in her classroom and could share with her children there. She was so happy to receive them! It felt great to be giving to the community in this way!!!
Here is “Ms. D”‘s daughter proudly showcasing an Arm and Hammer “My Way” Spinbrush and Toothpaste!
I also bought some Arm and Hammer Spinbrushes and toothpaste for my little girls. These particular ones had stickers that you could decorate your toothbrush with! They had so much fun decorating their Spinbrushes!!! What a great way to get kids excited about toothcare! Also I just loved the little jewel that was the on off switch!
They had even more fun brushing with their new Spinbrushes! KareBear said that it tickled her!
Pinkie Pie was proud of her decorations!!!
There are tons of ways to get connected with CFK and here are some links dedicated to this great cause:
