10000 Tubes of Toothpaste Thanks to Ricki Lake and Henry Schein Foundation

Have you ever wondered what 10000 tubes of toothpaste look like? Me neither, but now we know! Thanks to the Ricki Lake Show and Henry Schein Foundation, 5000 toothbrushes and 10000 tubes of toothpaste were donated to InvisiblePeople.tv. Like being featured on episode 3 the first week Ricki Lake’s new show returns wasn’t enough, they surprised me with very gorgeous donations to help our homeless friends. Poverty and homelessness is far too for any one organization to fight alone. I strongly believe all nonprofits should network and help each other. It’s in InvisiblePeople.tv’s core values share the love, which is exactly what we did this week. Ascencia, The Midnight Mission, and LA Family Housing all received a generous portion of this gift of dental hygiene products. Henry Schein’s shipment arrived a day early so I didn’t have any camera gear with me. I was just going to deliver the boxes of toothpaste and that’s it. But when Terry, an employee at LA Family Housing, started talking about how the homeless families were asking for toothpaste and there was none, I just had to record a little video from my phone.

  1. Mark, I had to check you out after your presentation today at the AZCEH conference. These videos are really an inspiration for what we do. Also wanted to see if you had any tips for free getting furniture, beds, housewares. Our program provides support services to people in permanent supportive housing. Started a facility where we store donated things for our people but no budget so always looking for ways to score free stuff. Keep up your good works. Spread the word! We will be heard!

  2. Mark, you are such an inspiration. I truly thank you for all that you do for a growing segment of our nation’s population that often times gets ignored. I work with felony probationers in rural Northern California. Our County’s population exceeds over 65,000; however, there are no homeless shelters here. It is a huge problem for our clients and community members as well. What can I do to help combat homelessness in my community? Thank you kindly.

  3. That’s awesome!

  4. Awesome.

  6. my she’s certainly a nice looking lady

  7. I think the point of these videos is to raise awareness of homelessness IN ALL COMMUNITIES. So I would say – find out where your local shelter and homeless supports are and start donating there. If everyone that watched Mark’s videos did this it would raise an amazing amount of product and financial contributions in communities around the world.
