Help Fight the Fight with Jaundice
THE PROBLEM - CHILDREN SUFFERING FROM JAUNDICE
Children Smart Toys have partnered with the D-Rev Organization to help fight Jaundice for children in low-income areas around the world.
It is a simple treatable disease in America, but in other parts of the world, it is not. Jaundice is a disease in babies that is characterized by the yellowing of the eyes and the bodies of babies. Though primarily caused by an infection of the liver (hepatitis) it is caused by many other factors.
60% of all children (3 in every 5) has some degree of jaundice. Up to 6 million babies do not get the adequate treatment, and as a result, 18% of all babies with jaundice are severe cases.
Moreover, if not detected and treated early, severe cases of jaundice can lead to kernicterus (a type of brain damage that can result from high levels of bilirubin in a baby's blood), an irreversible brain damage or even death.
In spite of all this, the illness is very treatable. When detected early, jaundice can be treated simply by shining intense blue light onto an infected baby’s skin. However, when not detected early, the treatment can be very costly to both hospitals and parents whose wards are faced by the disease.
THE SOLUTION - SUPPORTING PARTNERS TO INCREASE TREATMENT
We believe the fight against jaundice is a huge one as it entails the lives of many innocent children. One of the most efficient means of treating jaundice is by the use of treatment devices - phototherapy.
Through your benevolent donations, you and I can partner with major institutions and non-charitable organizations working tirelessly to fight against jaundice across the globe.
Also, if we are able to hit our target for this project, we seek to set aside part of the funds to order and install treatment devices in low-income hospitals across the country.
Most importantly, since we are doing this with you, we are still open any form of suggestions of ways to solve the problem effectively and efficiently.
WHY CHILDRENSMARTTOYS IS SUPPORTING
All the above and more make our hearts skip a beat for the lives of the future generation. And, as an organization aimed at making the growth and development of children fun through educational toys, we believe we have an important role to play to ensure the safety of our children.
WHAT IS THE GOAL OR TARGET OF THE DONATION:
We seek to raise $20,000 by the end of the year 2018.
HOW DO YOU SEEK TO REACH THIS TARGET:
As a caring organization aimed at securing the lives of the future generation, we are donating a whopping 10% of all our proceeds for the year to support the fight against jaundice.
We are also counting on the support of the general public, our cherished customers, suppliers, partners, friends, loved ones and you to make this dream a reality.
Your donations are welcome. Alternatively, by buying from us, you are directly saving the life of our future generation.
WHY YOUR DONATIONS ARE VERY IMPORTANT:
The average treatment device, which uses six (6) bulbs, has each bulb costing $15, and the bulbs last for four months. That makes it $360 to successfully run each treatment device per year, minus utility and administrative costs.
Aside from all this cost, a recent report showed that nearly 96% of all treatment devices in low-income areas do not meet the standards of the American Academy of Paediatrics. As a matter of fact, 1 out 3 treatment devices (33%) have at least one bulb missing or burnt-out. To make matters worse, only 5% of urban and district hospitals have effective phototherapy in place to treat jaundice.
HOW DO I KNOW MY DONATIONS ARE EFFICIENTLY USED?:
After building a reputable name and brand from selling educational toys to children in the US, Canada and all over the world, we have made a powerful mark in the lives of many that trust our business for our quality products, great customer service and satisfaction we bring to our customers.
Thus, we have come up with a dedicated and very updated page that tracks and informs our donors on every step of the donation process.
