Transcript for TikTok challenge helps teach kids how to safely wash hands
We are back now with the popular tiktok video that makes hand washing fun for kids which is so important right now as an estimated 48 million head back to playgrounds, rec centers and schools and ginger joins us with more. Hey again, ginger. Hey, I know as a parent we've all thought a lot about this. We know we should wash our hands for 20 seconds but it's hard to make kids do it so our sponsor safeguard created a product donation program to show kids how to soap up and stay safe. You got 20 seconds to get it right to make a change and got to do it every day and night. Reporter: A tiktok all about washing your hands. Wash your hands for 20 seconds by scrubbing Reporter: Thousands posted with safeguard splash showing people the proper way to stay clean. I got to stay fresh Reporter: "Pretty little liars" actress shay Mitchell. Why not make it educational and fun at the same time. Reporter: Hosted by our sponsor safeguard, makers of soap and sanitizers urging people to wash for at least 20 seconds. An important reminder since a recent survey found more than half of parents say their children don't always practice proper hand washing? As communities are slowly starting to open up and kids will eventually go back to playgrounds and schools the number one thing we can do as parents is really lead by example. And show them the right way of doing it. Reporter: To help keep children healthy safeguard is donating $10 million in product and education to organizations like save the children, americares and feeding America to reach underserved communities most impacted by covid-19. Not only is there a product donation but also, you know, education that goes along with that. You can have all the product but if you're not washing correctly it's not going to do the same thing. Reporter: Education that Mitchell says she's already teaching to her 8-month-old atlas. Having a little one at this ages, everything goes in her mouth so we want to teach them to stress the mourns of not only protecting their family and friends but also the community. Especially with my 2-year-old. A fight a lot of times. I know I'll try that with my boy. Thank you so much for that,
