Help Yourself..Help Someone Else!

I just love products that are "necessities" that I can purchase for me AND help someone less fortunate. I already discussed A.ker.fa and Mica Gem (Read Article Here) and you know I love Toms (darling kids shoes). I recently received a toothbrush from "Smile Squared"- I love what they are doing, for every toothbrush you purchase ($5.95- children and adult brushes available), they will send one to a child in need. The toothbrushes are made from bamboo and are completely biodegradable- so they are good for this beautiful planet God has made as well! 


This is their mission- make sure to visit smilesquared.com to check it out:

"At Smile Squared, our goal is to offer practical, sustainable solutions to help improve the overall health and educational needs of children around the world.  The Smile Squared toothbrush emerged from the recognition of such a need and the idea that we could turn a small product into something that makes a big difference in people’s lives.
We buy toothbrushes without giving it a second thought. At Smile Squared, we encourage everyone to think about the products we buy: Where will this product end up when I’m done with it? Is it a fair trade product? BPA free? Can my purchase have a direct impact on someone else who needs it?
At Smile Squared your purchase protects the environment and, most importantly, helps children in need. Anytime you buy one of our products, we give one to a child. It may be one of the most basic things we’ll ever do, but in changing the way we purchase hygiene products, we can meet a growing need and impact lives.  You buy one, we’ll give one, and together we’ll bring back smiles, one at a time."
