Actress Ginnifer Goodwin joined the LISTERINE Brand to take a stand for America's oral health with the LISTERINE 21 Day Challenge, a new initiative that will empower Americans to make a remarkable impact in oral health for themselves and children in need.
Goodwin is "swishing" for change! She kicked off the 21-Day Challenge with the "The $21,000 Swish," which will result in a contribution to Oral Health America to support access to dental care for children in need and combat oral disease - the most chronic childhood illness in the U.S.
