COSTA MESA, Calif. – May 14, 2013 – For the seventh consecutive year, CareCreditSM has donated $100,000 to the ADA Foundation Give Kids A Smile (GKAS) Fund®. This year, half of the total grant amount is designated to support the Ad Council’s 2min2X oral care campaign through funding of four major events:
- one dental school screening for underserved children
- two elementary school education events for underserved children (Calif. and Mo.)
- Missions of Mercy/Give Kids A Smile children’s oral health education and treatment event at the 2013 ADA Annual Session
Each event will incorporate and support the Ad Council’s 2min2x oral care campaign, educating and encouraging children to spend two minutes brushing their teeth, twice a day, and providing free oral care education and toothbrush kits.
