DALLAS, Dec. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Poo~Pourri has built its reputation for encouraging people to "breathe in the happy and let go of the crappy." This holiday season Poo~Pourri is expanding on this theme with a random act of kindness called, "Poo It Forward."

To show their gratitude for the care and dedication that healthcare professionals give to others during the holidays, Poo~Pourri will be donating 70,000 two-ounce bottles of Lavender Vanilla and Vanilla Mint scents to hospital workers and healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, techs, pharmacists and other hospital staff. It's Poo~Pourri's way of saying "thank-you" for healthcare workers' tireless service.

"One of our company's main goals is to put good stuff out into the world," says Suzy Batiz, CEO and Founder of Poo~Pourri. "So we wanted to show that when you pay-it-forward, you can start this amazing wave of kindness with one small act. That's where 'Poo It Forward' came from. We wanted to start a domino effect of smiles for the people who give so much during the holidays."

Poo~Pourri has partnered with over 50 hospitals for the "Poo It Forward" initiative, including a 10,000 bottle giveaways to the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans. Other major donations will be sent to the MedStar Washington Hospital Center, Baltimore's Good Samaritan Hospital Center, Jackson-Madison County General Hospital in West Tennessee, The Oaks of Louisiana, and University of Colorado Hospital.

The free bottles of Poo~Pourri will be delivered to hospitals nationwide between Friday, December 18th and Monday, December 21st. Each free bottle of Poo~Pourri retails for $9.95, resulting in a total "Poo It Forward" of just over $700,000.
