This is both an outreach and education program of Lead Safe America Foundation and also represents the opportunity for us to raise funds to bring testing events to under-served communities that do not otherwise have these resources.
Have you ever wondered whether that toy,
shiny bauble or antique dish
was safe for you or your child?
Your house, Your city, Your friends!
Tamara Rubin, Executive Director of the Lead Safe America Foundation (based in Portland, OR – in the WestMoreland neighborhood) will be on-site testing your things for toxicants.
She will instantly (results in as little as 30 seconds) be able to tell you if it contains lead, mercury, cadmium or arsenic (you might be surprised). She’ll also be able to confirm the actual percentage of gold, silver, or platinum that mysterious piece of jewelry contains.
Lead Safe America Foundation is a 501(c)3 advocacy organization committed to protecting children everywhere from environmental toxicity. www.LeadSafeAmerica.org
