Pink & Black Toothbrushes from Whitewash Labs
WhiteWash Laboratories, has joined forces with two charities to raise money and awareness for specific gender specific types of cancer.
The women’s charity is the Pink Ribbon Foundation. The statistics are that 47,000 women in the United Kingdom discover breast cancer every year. The Pink Ribbon Foundation is a grant making trust with an objective to fund tasks and provide financial backing to UK charities which alleviate the requirements of individuals who are experiencing, or who have been affected by breast cancer, or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer, its early detection and treatment. To recognize their work Whitewash has introduced a special pink edition of their oscillating electric toothbrush. Every brush that is purchased from them, £2.50 will be donated to the foundation.
British female celebs are loving the pink toothbrushes that are being sent to them. TOWIE star Jess Wright tweeted:
[email protected] thank you for my @pinkribbonfound toothbrush raising money for an amazing cause.“
Model and reality TV star, Nicola McLean, Sunetra Sarker, who is best known for her duty in Casualty and singer and Hollyoaks actress Carley Stenson also tweeted about the pink toothbrush.
The men’s charity they are supporting is Prostate Cancer UK which aims to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. It has three objectives: to support guys identified with the disease, to find answers by moneying research, and raising awareness to enhance the care of those affected by prostate cancer.
Middleborough based WhiteWash Laboratories, established by school close friends Tom Riley, Matthew Lloyd and Chris McPhillips, has established a variety of tooth-whitening and oral care items, which are offered online and through a network of 1,000 dental practitioners across the UK.
Why we did it
Tom Riley, Managing Director of WhiteWash Laboratories, said: “We’re really proud to be launching our new toothbrushes to help raise money and awareness for the Pink Ribbon Foundation and Prostate Cancer UK.
“The statistics are shocking, with more than 12,000 women dying of breast cancer each year and more than 10,000 men dying of prostate cancer; they’re unforgiving diseases that can affect anyone, so we wanted to do something to show our support for the charities. We’re hoping that the new brushes raise lots of money for the fantastic causes.“
Lisa Allen, from the Pink Ribbon Foundation, said: “It’s great that Whitewash Laboratories is supporting the Pink Ribbon Foundation and we’d like to say a massive thank you to the team.
“The number of women diagnosed with breast cancer is rising, so it’s vital that we receive help such as this. The Pink Ribbon Foundation relies on the hard work freely given by Trustees, interested parties and its Patrons, so all the support we receive goes a long way in helping those affected by breast cancer.“
Mark Bishop, Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said: “Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in men, with more than 40,000 men diagnosed with the disease each year, so we really have to act now to help combat the disease.
“The new black toothbrush is a great way to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK and will hopefully help spread the word and raise awareness of prostate cancer. We are really grateful for the support from WhiteWash Laboratories.“ Source here.
