The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to Heart to Heart International. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide donor's full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Disaster Survivors Face Poor Sanitation

After a natural disaster, one of the biggest threats survivors face is the threat of disease. Poor sanitation in overcrowded shelters can cause hygiene-related health issues to run rampant. Basic hygiene products can help return a sense of normalcy and protect those who have recently suffered a catastrophe.

The Campaign: Distribute Packs of Hygiene Products

If this Grassroots campaign raises $300, then Heart to Heart International can distribute 30 hygiene care kits to survivors of natural disasters. Each additional $10 raised will fund another hygiene care kit. Each kit contains toiletry and first-aid items, including a hand towel, a washcloth, a wide-tooth comb, a bottle of shampoo, a toothbrush, a tube of toothpaste, a bar of soap, and 10 bandages, encased in zipper-seal bags. Volunteers assemble the care kits to send to disaster survivors around the world. FedEx and the companies who produce the products underwrite the costs of shipping and supplying the hygiene kits.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

Heart to Heart International

Heart to Heart International began as the vision of Dr. Gary Morsch, who challenged his local Rotary club to donate medical supplies to hospitals in Moscow at the end of the Cold War. With local collections across the country and the aid of the U.S. government, they distributed aid to 15 area hospitals. Today, Heart to Heart International continues to improve health conditions all over the world by connecting individuals in need with medical resources. It mobilizes volunteers to provide medical education and aid, respond to international crises, and address community health concerns.
