Farah Flossit here, hoping you all had a blessed holiday weekend!
Last year, I listed some potential New Year’s “Denta-lutions” (make sure to read it if you missed out on it last year) to help your family get a healthy jump start, but this year, I would like to provide some ideas on how to “Smile it Forward” while your kiddos are on break.
Many people donated toys and gifts to the less fortunate during the holiday season, but another great idea is to find a local homeless shelter or orphanage to visit or donate unopened hygiene products.
Encouraging a healthy smile can be done on a budget by visiting your local dollar store. You can set a budget of $20 and help 20 less-fortunate children and adults keep their teeth and gums healthy. If you are able to splurge just a little more, remember to include tooth brushes, floss and even some mouth wash.
After receiving plenty of gifts and giving plenty of new toys to your children, now is a good time to get rid of the old and re-gift to those in need. Make this your “spring cleaning” and start the New Year free of clutter and feeling good about giving back.
Let your kids learn by example.
Helping others and spreading a healthy message to those that are less fortunate feels good and is the right thing to do. Bring smiles to others as a family. Be kind to others and Smile it Forward!
Thank you for tuning in on today’s Happy “Tooth-Day’s” report!
I look forward to chatting with you all next week!
