For those new to this website:
Tamara Rubin is a multiple-Federal-award-winning independent advocate for childhood Lead-poisoning prevention and consumer goods safety, and a documentary filmmaker. She is also a mother of Lead-poisoned children (two of her sons were acutely Lead-poisoned in 2005). Since 2009, Tamara has been using XRF technology (a scientific method used by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) to test consumer goods for toxicants (specifically heavy metals — including Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Antimony, and Arsenic). All test results reported on this website are science-based, accurate, and replicable. Items are tested multiple times to confirm the test results for each component tested. Tamara’s work was featured in Consumer Reports Magazine in February of 2023 (March 2023 print edition).
How much has Lead Safe Mama, LLC earned via your Amazon clicks?

Hello! Happy Monday!
We had a wonderful 15th birthday weekend for Charlie. I posted videos of most of the boys’ concerts on Instagram (in case you haven’t seen them yet and would like to check them out, here’s the link).
Are you curious about how much Lead Safe Mama, LLC has earned (with your help!) in support of our Lead Poisoning Prevention advocacy work and independent consumer goods testing over the years? The link with a full breakdown of all of our Amazon Affiliate income to date (since 2016) is above.
I’m finalizing our semi-annual report for 2023, so will be sharing more programmatic and financial updates shortly, too. Thank you so much for your support in all of the ways! We are finally (after nearly seven years of hard work!) approaching a sustainable business model (self-supporting where the work of Lead Safe Mama, LLC fully generates enough income to cover the cost of what we do here). This should be 100% there by January 2024 (or possibly before)! Please load remote content for this email and click the first image above to see the full summary of our Amazon Affiliate income broken down by year and month.
In other news, we announced two more winners for our big summer #Giveaway — those announcements are above. I expect to be announcing the remaining six winners over the next day or two, so stand by for that!
And finally (in terms of new info today), there’s one more new test result for the dishes linked above (XRF test results for Pfaltzgraff’s Midnight Sun pattern).
As always, thank you for being here, and thank you for supporting this work in all ways. I expect I will be sending out a newsletter with more consumer goods test results shortly, too — making up for some lost time!
