Brush-Baby is delighted to announce our support for the Buddy Bag Foundation, an inspiring organisation that puts together a bag of practical and comforting goodies for children taken into emergency care across the UK.
We will be providing baby toothbrushes and infant toothpaste in these bags as a contribution to help children who are taken into emergency care. We believe that every child should have access to a kids toothbrush and children's toothpaste.
From the moment we first heard about the Buddy Bag Foundation’s mission to support children going through a traumatic experience, we knew it was something we wanted to be a part of.
Sadly, over 48,000 UK children are taken into emergency care each year. The Buddy Bag Foundation and its army of volunteers, have packed and delivered over 10,000 Buddy Bags for these vulnerable children and Brush-Baby is only too happy to help by donating some of our dental essentials for the bags.
Last week, Brush-Baby donated a 3-month supply of our ‘FlossBrush bristles toothbrush’, designed for ages 3-6 and 6+, as well as a supply of Brush-Baby Spearmint Baby Toothpaste, for the next batch of bags.
Our products will join other items, including clean pyjamas, underwear and appropriate children’s activities, to try and keep children comfortable and occupied during extremely distressing circumstances.
Brush-Baby’s founder Dominique Tillen says “A Buddy Bag helps give a vital social and psychological boost for these children, reminding them that there are people out there that do care about them, we are delighted to help.”
