Grin proudly provides a monthly donation of over 600 kids & adults brushes to Nurturing Families. Nurturing Families is a not-for-profit charity that provides customised practical wrap around assistance to families in hardship in Auckland and Taranaki. Our Grin brushes will be included into care parcels including nappies, wipes, clothing, baby food, prams, school bags and everything in between to help families in need get back on their feet.
"At Nurturing Families, we believe Dental hygiene is immensely important for a healthy family and for our children. We are stoked to have a Grin on board supplying us with toothbrushes, as it means we can easily get them in the hands of our most vulnerable,” says Nurturing Families Founder, Tayla Nasmith.
Taumata School located in Tauranga, New Zealand received 658 toothbrushes for their students as part of the 21-Day Brushing Challenge! Each student also received the Grin 21-Day Brushing Challenge Chart that includes stickers to reward the child for brushing their teeth each morning and evening. Nick Opie, Head of Health & PE, says, “Not only is it remarkable that each and every student in the school has received multiple toothbrushes but it has initiated a very important conversation around the importance of oral hygiene. A massive ngā mihi to the organizers and sponsors of the Grin Natural 21-Day Brushing Challenge.” We’ve since returned to Taumata School and provided an additional 678 toothbrushes as part of our optional 3-month follow up programme to help students continue the lifelong oral care habits they’ve established!
