Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. When a fifteen year old comes up with an idea about how to use the Internet to make the world just a little bit better, it’s a beautiful thing. When she keeps the project going more than six years later…all the way through college, it’s even more remarkable. Meet Donateatoothbrush.com founder Paige Alenick…who credits her whole family….including sister Ashley…for helping the site collect nearly 250 thousand toothbrushes for people in developing countries. Many had never owned a toothbrush before…
“You see these pictures and you get letters from people who are so appreciative of what you’re doing. It’s been my main source of motivation for wanting to keep this going because if I can inspire other people to want to make a difference and do these little acts of kindness, then for me it’s worth the added stress and the added activities.”
