|Rob Lowe For Crest|
Actor Rob Lowe joined Crest to launch the Crest Healthier Smiles Project. Kids with poor oral health are 3 times more likely to miss school and that’s not OK. The Crest Healthier Smiles Project launched a nationwide education program with the PTA and teamed up with Feeding America to donate toothpaste to those who need it most.
The event was held at Innovation Loft, 151 W. 30th Street, New York.
Rob Lowe talked about the Crest Healthier Smiles Project, his experience as a dad of two teenage boys, his mom’s experience as a high-school teacher and his upcoming projects.
A Crest representative was on hand to discuss the Crest Healthier Smiles Project and the importance of a good oral care routine and why a healthier smile is more important than you think.
Representatives from National PTA and Feeding America were also in attendance to provide information about their partnerships with Crest.
Simply take a picture of your smile and upload it to Twitter, Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag, #HealthierSmilesProject and for every photo uploaded by October 31st, @Crest will donate 5 tubes of toothpaste to Feeding America.
