One in five children in the U.S. live in poverty and millions of children don’t have access to regular check-ups and timely doctor’s visits when sick. Children’s Health Fund (CHF), a non-profit organization committed to providing health care to the nation’s most medically underserved children and their families, and Clorox are working to change this and connect kids to ongoing health care through a new program called Connect Kids to Care.
As part of Clorox’s commitment to preventive health for families, the company is donating half a million dollars to CHF to help support their goal of providing half a million health care visits to disadvantaged children across the country, over the next two years.
In addition, Clorox is donating $1.00 for each new fan on the Clorox Facebook page, up to $100,000.
To help Clorox spread the word and help CHF provide health care visits to children in need you can:
- Connect: Visit the Clorox page on Facebook® (www.Facebook.com/Clorox) to learn more about the program and become a fan. Clorox will donate $1.00 to CHF for each new fan that joins the Clorox Facebook page up to $100,000 (from April 2010 to January 2012).
- Share: Help spread the word to friends and family by changing your Facebook status (additional details on Facebook.com/Clorox).
- Act: Visit the Clorox Facebook page to find out more and learn how a $10 donation can help CHF provide health care to children in need.
Without access to regular health care, many children go without treatment for common ailments, like asthma and cavities, which can lead to serious problems if left untreated. CHF’s mobile medical clinics go into underserved communities to bring ongoing health care to children at schools, community centers, homeless shelters and other places in the heart of the community.
With the click of a mouse, you can help connect kids to comprehensive health care and give them a chance at a healthier future.
