Something to Smile About: A SpReAd the Love Challenge

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have heard about Richard Armitage’s biting debut as Francis Dolarhyde…aka The Tooth Fairy…on NBC’s Hannibal.  We here at STL like to mark special Armitage events, and this one is no different.  You might wonder how we are going to blend together kindness collection with an orally afflicted serial murderer…that’s easy!

Anyone else remember this from Captain Kangaroo??

In honor of the “Tooth Fairy” we are challenging ArmitageWorld to donate toothbrushes (and/or other oral hygiene products) to local or international organizations in need.  Dental health is directly connected to overall physical health, yet millions of people around the globe lack easy access to oral hygiene products.  Toothbrushes, dental floss, toothpaste and mouthwash regularly show up on the “Things We Need” list for homeless shelters and also for international relief agencies.  Here are just a few I know about:

Donate A Toothbrush

Global Dental Relief

Global Grins (this one accepts only money donations, but a $1 donation can supply up to 5 toothbrushes)

There are many, many local agencies that accept in kind donations of this type…to find one in your area in the US, click here.  If anyone has info on agencies in their area, outside of the US, please let us know in comments.

So here’s the challenge…

Between now and the end of the “Tooth Fairy’s” run, collect and donate dental hygiene products to a charity in your local area or to an international agency, then report back to us and we’ll tally it all up for future reference and goodwill raising.

If you’d like to be collaboRAtor on this challenge, we always love to be able to double down on our in kind donations with a matching cash gift to one of Richard Armitage’s Just Giving Charities…contact us via the About tab if you’re interested.

Ready…set…BRUSH!

 

 

The Final Countdown…Bah-dah-dah-dah bah-dah-dah-dah-dah!

Wow, my Twitter TL is saucy tonight…’cause there’s eating of people and stuff and you need sauce and I’m just going to shut up now. Anyway, it’s the final week till the first appearance of Francis Dolarhyde on Hannibal and Obscura and I have something really cool to celebrate. Last summer during the run of The Crucible a friend of ours went out of her way to get us a poster signed by The Dude and now it’s time to give it away.

This one, in fact. Forgive the glare but check how legible the sig is!

So, to win this fabulous, signed by The Dude poster you know what to do, right? Leave a comment with a kindness that you’ve done or that’s been done for you and we’ll draw one name from all commenters next Saturday around 9PMish ET. Cool? Cool. Okay, cue the hairband and happy commenting!

 

 

 

Hellooo??? Anyone in there????

Oh HI!!!  Yes, we’re definitely still here, but spring sprang all over Jazzbaby and I….

I’ve just been dusting things off a bit to get ready to give SpReAd the Love a little jumpstart, since lots of things have been happening on the kindness front.  A little further housekeeping is in order though, before we get to some new things…

book donationThe Children’s Book Challenge exceeded the fifty books to max out our anonymous donor’s matching cash donation pledge.  The funds were donated to Richard Armitage’s Just Giving page for Young Minds all the way back in March.  It is such a great experience to hear so many people talk about books that touched them and their desire to share that with a child.  Maybe I should build a “virtual library” page here with links to all our SpReAd the Love Children’s Book Challenge titles…future projects  🙂

Now, back to current events on the kindness front:

Over at Ancient Armitage, I am happy to report that I can still rely on the kindness of strangers to avert massive mortification

The recent devastating earthquakes in Nepal have moved Guylty to lend her creative genius to charitable works…check out the plans for a relief fund raising RAPS auction

And last but not least, a promised kindness from the mutual OOA on the doodle front…

With 2 days and 21 hours left, the “diddly doodle” in question should raise a nice amount for Neurofibromatosis Network.  As of this “press time”, the leading bid is $2125.  Click here if you’re ready to bid.

Tons of great stuff going on…watch this space in the next few weeks for a carnassial challenge to mark Richard Armitage’s debut on NBC’s Hannibal.  

As always, we are delighted to hear of SpReAding the Love with reports of any kindness given or received…click over to the ABOUT page and drop us a line!
