uDo, Inc.® was founded by Holmdel resident Anthony Dalleggio, Jr. with the mission of ensuring that everyone on the planet owns a toothbrush and uses it in the most eco-friendly way possible. This socially conscious business is a manufacturer, importer, and distributor of the only bamboo-handled toothbrush with a U.S. Patent. What makes uDo, Inc.® socially conscious is the immense giveback guaranteed with every purchase.
uDo, Inc.®, in collaboration with Saker ShopRite stores, has partnered with The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, Holiday Express, and the Hope for Children Foundation to donate meals and toothbrushes to 40,000 kids and teens in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. ShopRite donates three meals for every two-pack of uDo® toothbrushes purchased at Saker ShopRite locations. In addition, sales proceeds help uDo® fund its bighearted toothbrush donation campaign.
“There are 40,000 kids served by the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, they all need toothbrushes and toothpaste, and I’m not stopping until our youth get all the toothbrushes they need. Oral hygiene is a human right and it really is an underserved cause. We’re going to make the world better one smile at a time, and we’re going to solve this global problem in our backyard first.” said Mr. Dalleggio, founder of uDo, Inc.® and the United Donations Organization. The United Donations Organization has been formed as a nonprofit organization to expand the good work being performed by uDo, Inc.®, a for-profit company. “There are more cell phone owners than toothbrush owners in the world. In the USA alone, 1,000,000,000 plastic toothbrushes are discarded in landfills yearly. Nevertheless, there are still millions in the USA that lack adequate resources to maintain good dental hygiene.”
“Good health and nutrition are critically important for children to thrive, and we appreciate the toothbrushes and funds for meals to our families in need,” said Linda Keenan, FoodBank Director of Development. Holmdel Mayor and founder of the Hope for Children Foundation Eric Hinds said, “Anthony and the uDo® team continue to make a positive impact in our community. I met Anthony when he first started his company and he successfully enlisted my support to give talks at schools in the area. uDo® has come a long way since then. They’re getting everyone involved in giving meals and toothbrushes in the area. Anthony has a great ability to bring the community together for a great cause. I’m happy to back it!”
Starting in the fall of 2016, toothbrushes to be donated throughout the county will be packaged by The Arc of Monmouth’s Work Opportunity Center in Long Branch, a vocational training center for adults with developmental disabilities. “We are delighted that uDo, Inc.® has chosen the The Arc to assist with this important community project,” said Linda Porter, director of vocational services for the Tinton Falls-based agency. “Not only are our participants getting the work experience they need to live as full and independent a life as possible, but they’ll be helping to get toothbrushes in the hands of those who might go without. It’s a win-win situation.”
