Healthy Child Healthy World…A Giveaway

Three of my Life List items are:

#44-do kind things for others

#45 get healthy

#52 get allergies under control

So when I heard about the Healthy Child Healthy World organization and learned that participating could help me along my path to achieving all three – I was very excited.

Healthy Child Healthy World is a non-profit organization that is inspiring the movement to protect our children from harmful chemicals. Millions of America’s children are suffering from an unprecedented rise in chronic diseases and conditions such as cancer, autism, asthma and developmental disabilities. Scientific evidence increasingly points to chemicals in our everyday environments as contributing to many of these diseases. Healthy Child Healthy World translates the science, advocates for policy change and empowers parents to make easy lifestyle choices that better protect their children. Simple changes such as choosing organic foods when possible and using non-toxic household cleaners. The organization began after five-year-old Colette Chuda died of a rare form of non-hereditary cancer linked to environmental factors; her parents, Jim and Nancy Chuda, turned their grief into action in 1992.

One of the ways that the organization is spreading their message is with a “Healthy Home Party Kit” program, inspiring small steps to big change. I got my hands on this kit and it’s neat. It includes information and the organization’s award-winning “Wake Up To 5 Easy Steps” DVD, as well as product samples and coupons from organic and non-toxic product manufacturers such as LUNA Bar, Klean Kanteen and Earth Friendly Products providing snacks, sippy cups, cleaning products and more!

A glance at the contents of the party kit!

The idea is to share the kit contents with family and friends and if possible, get together to talk about the simple steps we can all take to create healthier homes, communities and families. Each The kit is valued at $75 and there’s enough informational materials and samples to send a goodie bag home with 15 people. I think this would be perfect for a mom’s group, bible study group, school/PTO group or book club…but you could just gather neighbors and friends together for an impromptu play date and while the kids are playing you can talk about easy ways to make your homes healthier.

 

I love the Mohawk floorcare starter kit and Earth Friendly Products Cleaners included in the kit!

A Giveaway!!

I felt good about passing on these goodies to my friends and now I want you to have the same opportunity.

    If I am the lucky winner I am actually going to give the Healthy Home Party kit to a friend who doesn’t even have the $20 for one! She’d be so excited!

    As for me, I try to use cleaning products that are less toxic!

    We have started being more natural with the foods that we eat, and I’d love the opportunity to make a start being more naturally in our physical environment! (here from MSM!)

    I am making our home healthier by having my girls help me clean. When I give them a rag it is usually soaked in water or, at most, a little vinegar. I always think about what products the girls have contact with and therefor we do not use harsh chemicals much.
