To help make the holiday season easier, Oral-B Glide along with GH star Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo, kicked off the “Glide Into The Holidays” program benefitting Operation Smile, with a free skate day at New York City’s Wollman Rink in Central Park yesterda.
To grant holiday wishes to kids globally with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities, Oral-B Glide will make a $1 donation to Operation Smile for every pledge made at the event. Globally, the need for cleft care is urgent. Every three minutes, it is estimated that a child is born with a cleft, and many of these children cannot eat properly, speak, or smile.
Additionally, Oral-B Glide and Vanessa hope to inspire others to stick to their oral care routine this holiday season by pledging to switch to Glide online through Facebook and Twitter. For every person who tweets or posts on Oral-B’s Facebook wall with the hashtag #Switch2Glide through February 28, 2011, Oral-B Glide will make a $1 donation to Operation Smile with a guaranteed donation of $10,000 over the course of the entire campaign.
So has Vanessa ever been caught on camera with something in her teeth as much as she flosses?
"Oh yeah! I've been on-set with floss stuck in my teeth...I'm not kidding you! Because I ran down, ate something, flossed, and then had that moment where it got stuck - and it pulls, and it tears - I literally, no joke did a whole slew of scenes one day with floss in my teeth because everything on set just moves at such a rapid pace.Read complete interview on FIT CELEB...!
She laughingly added, "Oh well, there's just a string in my teeth."
