Happy Holidays!

It has yet again, been some time since we have updated you and our donors on the progress and happenings of T4T. Unfortunately, everything is very slow-going still and although a couple packages have been sent, we have yet to show-case the photos to you.

We want to wish you all a Healthy and Happy Holiday to you and yours.

Thank you for your continued support!

  • Globally, about 30% of people aged 65–74 have no natural teeth.
  • Oral disease in children and adults is higher among poor and disadvantaged population groups.

Did you know?


Did you know that pediatric dental disease, also referred to as childhood tooth decay, is the #1 chronic childhood illness?  When left untreated, childhood tooth decay can have devastating consequences that extend beyond the dental chair.  
  • Pediatric dental disease is 5 times more common than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever.
  • Left untreated, pediatric dental disease can lead to mal-nourishment, bacterial infections, required emergency surgery and even death.
  • Pain and infection caused by tooth decay can lead to problems in eating, speaking and learning.
  • Dental disease has been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pneumonia, poor pregnancy outcomes and dementia.
Rampant decay can negatively impact a child's overall quality of life, inhibit their cognitive and social development and compromise their growth, function and self esteem.

Update

We at T4T hope everyone is well and looking forward to summer. As we transition in to the warmer months, we are hoping that our charity "picks up" a bit. The process for becoming an official 501(c)(3) is moving along quite well, although slow. After completion we anticipate our donations will increase thereby allowing for more packages to be shipped.

Please help spread the word and as always, feel free to contact us at: toothbrushesfortoddlers@gmail.com

Thank you!

Thank you all for your support!

East Africa Shipment - 501(c)(3)

We are pleased to report that a shipment of dental supplies will be brought to Africa by Karon Wright. Karon is associated with "The Greater Contribution", an organization that fights poverty in Africa.

If you may know of someone traveling overseas this is a great way to deliver supplies and, of course saves on our expensive shipping costs.

Please visit "The Greater Contribution" website at www.GreaterContribution.org

Additionally, T4T is making efforts to become a non-profit organization. In doing so, we may be able to gain more support from companies that donate as they generally require a charity to be 501(c)(3) for tax purposes.

Once again, thank you to Karon and to all those supporting our mission.

Please help spread the word to friends, family, co-workers etc., in an effort to support us during this difficult time.

Thank you to all!
