February is National Children's Dental Health Month and to celebrate, a World record will be broken in Loveland.  A group calling themselves Living Generously Every Day will be at the First National Bank Building – North Hall at The Ranch to lay down toothbrushes and break the Guinness World Record for the longest line of toothbrushes at 7am on Tuesday, February 26th. I am honored to be there to witness and help verify the toothbrush count.

Thanks to Delta Dental of Colorado, Nanci Garnand of Re/Max, and the Loveland Design Center they collected 55,000 toothbrushes that will be lined up end to end for a record breaking 5.5 mile long line of toothbrushes. Don’t worry, the toothbrushes are individually wrapped, so they will stay clean, sanitary, and suitable for donation.

After they break the record, the toothbrushes will be disbursed to food banks and children's organization throughout the state of Colorado.

Toothpaste Needed

They have the toothbrushes, but they want to provide toothpaste to go with it. The goal is to raise $5,000 for toothpaste. If they raise more money than they need for that purpose, then funds will be directed to America's Tooth Fairy to provide dental care to children in need. 100% of donations you make go directly to either of these purposes.

Please note: For safety purposes, they are not taking donations of actual tubes of toothpaste. But we negotiated a great deal with a wholesaler, and you can buy a tube of toothpaste for 60 kids for just $19.25! Click here to Donate Toothpaste!
