Dr. Kammer, the Buyback's founder, has always dreamt of donating 100,000 toothbrushes to troops overseas; on top of the the tons of candy that we send. We asked our participants for suggestions to help collect brushes and we received some great ideas!
In Dr. Kammer's own practice, we've set up a collection jar at the check-out desk. Considering that most people have a favorite toothbrush or an electric brush at home, we're asking if they'd like to donate the brush in their take-home hygiene kit to the troops. We've been collecting for almost a month and have close to 50 brushes. Imagine if 500 offices followed this trend! We'll be at 100,000 in no time!
You can package your brushes and send them to Operation Gratitude when you send the candy in November. They'll be included in the care packages sent overseas! This easy-to-implement collection method needs to be used nationwide. Let's accomplish the 100,000 brush goal!!!
How the Buyback Works:
1. Participating offices register to be a collection point for candy donations. 3,000 nationally!!!
2. Registrations are searchable via the ZIP code search at the top right of this page! Enter your ZIP to find a buyback location near you!
3. Interested donors can call or email the practice to find out exact time/date/location of event. Because each event is held independently, we do not provide this information.
4. You drop off your candy donation for it to be shipped, by the participating office, to Van Nuys California and the Operation Gratitude headquarters.
