I've always enjoyed getting involved in community health projects. Community health projects have a direct impact on the community. You can really see the effects of your work as you tend to someone's needs or hand out much-needed supplies. However, not being big on medical stuff and always bolting at the first sign of illness (or blood, ach!) I'm limited in the types of community health projects I can do. Here's a fun one I'm getting involved with that's easy, inexpensive, great for kids, and not AT ALL scary.
Champions for Kids: Community Health Projects, One Person at a Time
We're working with Champions for Kids on their new Spin into Action project sponsored by Arm & Hammer Spinbrush! This project encourages community members to gather family and friends to provide dental care items for children in their communities.
I'm asking my friends to offer up any extra, unopened oral health items they may have around the house. Fortunately, I know a lot of extreme couponers with tons of extra goods that they got on the cheap. They're always willing to share for a good cause. I also have a fun craft up my sleeve (check back for that next week) that I know will help get kids excited about oral health.
I picked up some Arm & Hammer Spinbrush toothbrushes last time I was at Walmart because, let's face it, brushing your teeth is just more fun when batteries are involved. I'm donating all of the oral health products I collect for my Community Health Project to a favorite charity of mine, either the San Diego shelter for neglected children or to our local church.
