At Sesame we take pride not only in providing the best possible service for our members, but also in giving back to our community. This past December, we decided we would close out a great year by collecting donations for Childhaven by hosting a SmileDrive via America’s Toothfairy. Childhaven is a local Seattle nonprofit that aims to provide a safe, caring space for babies, toddlers and preschoolers that have experienced neglect and abuse. It’s a childhood trauma program that helps set these kids up for success and more importantly, it’s a program that helps them heal.
Our goal was to collect $1,000 in monetary donations in addition to collecting oral care products including infant toothbrushes, travel toothpastes, and floss. Well, we’re happy to announce that in just two weeks we exceeded our goal! We’re thankful for all who donated in any capacity and our awesome Search team for spreading the word and making this campaign a success.
Today we got to drop off everything we collected at Childhaven and celebrated with a team breakfast and coffee afterward. We feel lucky for having the opportunity to work with a program whose mission we admire and can’t wait to start planning other ways to impact our community positively. Cheers to the first of many successful projects!
