Food insecurity is a symptom of a larger problem, with many other painful results. A family unable to access sufficient food is often also dealing with a lack of access to other grocery items, including hygiene products such as toothbrushes and toothpaste. This can lead to serious health issues, which, in turn, compound the critical situation that person and their family are already facing. Through Share a Smile, Foodbank is working to increase access to these essential oral care products.
Tooth decay is the #1 most prevalent health problem in Australia, with 9 out of 10 adults experiencing tooth decay in their lifetime. To celebrate Dental Health Month in August 2017, Oral-B is partnering with Woolworths and Foodbank to focus on improving the dental health of struggling Australian families.
Share a Smile, which is proudly supported by Woolworths, is a national campaign to increase access to basic oral care and information for disadvantaged Australians. During the month of August, for every Oral-B product sold at Woolworths, Oral-B will make a donation to Foodbank.
How can you help Share a Smile?
Whilst shopping in-store or online during the month of August, you can support the campaign by simply purchasing any Oral-B products from Woolworths. Your purchase will trigger a donation to Foodbank, helping us reach our target of 20,000 dental health kits for Australians families in need. The kits will contain Oral-B toothbrushes, toothpaste and oral health care educational information.
