ANCHOR LEAD: What happens after the final rose and proposal? If you're the original Bachelorette… it's a husband, kids and preventing childhood diseases. Brian Osuch has more. (:60)
SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. One of the most common, yet preventable, childhood diseases is tooth decay. TV's original Bachelorette, and former Pediatric Physical Therapist, Trista Sutter says children's health has always been a top priority for her and that's why she's teaming up with Colgate and Champions for Kids to combat the epidemic.
CUT: (Sutter) Colgate has agreed to donate one-hundred-thousand dollars worth of oral care products to communities in need. But, we don't want it to stop there. We want people to get involved and go to their local Walmarts and donate toothbrushes and toothpaste that will go directly to the people in their community now through April 7th.
SCRIPT: She's now a mother of two and trying to teach the importance of proper oral care to her children.
CUT: (Sutter) It's also important for me to inspire them to be interested in their oral health. And that means going to the grocery store and choosing their own toothpaste and tooth brushes. It gets them interested and involved, and I've found that really helps for my kids.
SCRIPT: To find out more, go to ChampionsforKids.org/SimpleGiving. That's Lifestyles from Colgate.
