how can I find a sponsor?
I am looking for a sponsor to buy tooth brushes and tooth paste for primary school children in a village school.A dentist will come to school and inform them about general brushing ..... .If you know anyone from Marmaris Rotary club or other groups who maybe willing to support my school children by providing sponsorship on buying them small toothpaste and toothbrushes.

Thank you on behalf of my children at school. :blowkiss:

Aysel, from time to time while I was teaching in UK schools, various toothpaste companies would send samples and brushes to schools and we would do projects on looking after teeth. I'll contact some of these companies and see if they will send you the samples or give them to me and I'll bring them out. I can't promise but I'll try my best.

PM me your schools name and address so that I can tell them where it is to go and also how many.

Don't know if you would want people to bring new toothbrushes out to your area if they were coming to Turkey, Marmaris isn't my area and not out now til next year but Tesco are selling 2 toothbrushes in a sealed pack for 13 pence. Just bought 2 for the Christmas Purse Shoebox Appeal.

when i was health visiting we used to get small samples of toothpaste and little brushes from different toothpaste firms for primary schools..Colgates were very good..what about Turkish toothpaste firms..maybe they would do it...its good for their sales promotions.

grrr- this is the reply I got from Colgate, not much help. I told them it was for Turkey not UK so this is obvioulsy a standard letter to teachers who ask for samples or help. Maybe flowerpotman could have a go at them. I'll try a few more companies today but Colgate were the ones that used to send samples to my school. I think Shirley's idea of contacting a Turkish company is a good idea.

Not sure if this will work., but I worked for Tesco a few years ago and they always get letters from charities for donations.. they usually send gift vouchers to small charities. Anyway may be worth contacting them and refer to their nearest overseas branch to you i.e. Kipa Marmaris and perhaps they can help with a donation or have a contact in Kipa for you?

The school around mountains in Köyceğiz.I thought you may know Turkish Rotary club members in Marmaris to help my school in Beyobası area in Köyceğiz.School is 25 km away from center and many students are carried from long distances by school buses.I said Marmaris thinking you may know a Rotary club member there.
Between 22nd -27th NOVEMBER is the week to increase the awareness of dental hiegene.I have found a very nice dentist in Köyceğiz.He will come to school and inform the students with dental educational materials.. I thought it would be wonderful if we can provide toothbrushes ,because they will never forget the day and will keep on brushing their teeth from then on.
MANY THANKS FOR YOUR IDEAS ,NICE TO FEEL I AM NOT ALONE.
:angel:

There are 450 students ages between 6-14 years.I would be comfortable if support comes from a company.

Aysel, would the local Belediye not help? Or maybe one of the "Dernekler"?
Kipa are selling a child's toothbrush with a free Disney toothpaste for just under 5ytl. I don't know how many you are looking for but you might get a donation from one of these places.

I forgot to write .There are 450 students at my school.Half of it the age of between 6-11 we call them first primary.Other half is between 11-14 years old.
Little ones need to be given small size of toothbrushes.
