Just $33.33 puts 100 toothbrushes into the hands of children who don’t have any!
(Calgary, Alberta) – April is National Oral Health Awareness Month and in support, the Calgary-based Tooth Fairy Children’s Foundation has launched its new 3’s for These fundraising campaign aimed at placing toothbrushes into the hands of children (who don’t have one) locally, nationally and around the world.
“We can make a huge impact for a very small amount of money,” says CoraMarie Clark, CEO and Founder, The Tooth Fairy Children’s Foundation. “For just $33.33, together we can impact the lives of 100 children and create 100 smiles!”
According to the World Health Organization 90 percent of children in developing countries do not have tooth decay treated. Closer to home, there are many communities in Canada where lack of basic dental care is an issue.
“It’s shocking how many children don’t have a toothbrush, even in Canada,” explains Clark. “This campaign is to help raise awareness and funds to help solve this problem.”
“For just $33.33 (about the price of a 10 toothbrushes in North America), donors can provide 100 toothbrushes to children in need, put smiles on their faces and make a real difference.”
100 percent of the proceeds received from the ‘3’s for These’ campaign will be used to acquire and distribute toothbrushes.
“Every child deserves a chance to smile,” says Clark.
