~ Thank you to Oral-B for sponsoring this post. My opinions and words are my own.
The above picture is of me and my dad right before he walked me down the aisle. My dad was the ultimate Father of the Bride. The morning after I got engaged, he went straight to the bookstore and cleaned out the wedding planning shelf. From taking me to my dress fitting to keeping my mom up at night by discussing meal choices, he was involved in every step of the way. It was amusing but amazing to see my big Texas dad elbow deep in ruffles.
I shouldn’t have been surprised though. My dad has been there from day one: feeding me at night, giving me a bath, taking me on trips by himself (with three of my friends no less), picking me up and taking me to countless orthodontist appointments. Those were special afternoons in junior high, my dad always treated me to lunch after.
In celebration of Father’s Day this year, Oral-B is honoring dads everywhere with their newest campaign — the Power of Dad. This campaign focuses on the moments and smiles dads have brought to their families over the years. In honor of Father’s Day, Oral-B is making a $25,000 donation to March of Dimes, the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health, dedicated to helping babies get a healthy start in life.

“This Father’s Day, help support Oral-B’s mission by giving dad the gift of power to preserve his smile – with the new Oral-B Deep Sweep TRIACTION toothbrush. A breakthrough in brushing, it combines the familiar brushing motion of a manual brush with the comprehensive power of advanced triple zone cleaning action, to cover more surface area and remove up to 100 percent more plaque versus a regular manual toothbrush.”
