Teaching our children to “give back” is an important parenting responsibility. This could involve donating their gently used clothes or toys to those in need, collecting aluminum cans to raise money for charity, or even taking freshly baked cookies or bread to elderly neighbors. Of course, these activities are most frequently done during the holidays, when the “spirit of giving” is at its height, but people are in need all year long. With that in mind, White Cloud has teamed up with Children’s Miracle Network (“CMN”) to create miracles in the lives of children receiving treatment in its 168 U.S. member hospitals. As part of this initiative, children were given the opportunity to illustrate a template that may become a new White Cloud Facial Tissue box design! Now here’s where you come in…
White Cloud has narrowed the selection of designs to the top 10 finalists. These 10 designs have been uploaded to the White Cloud Facebook page Voting App where you can vote every day for your favorite design! At the end of the voting period, three winning designs will be printed on special edition White Cloud Facial Tissue boxes to be sold exclusively in Walmart stores starting in May. (Find a store near you!) In addition, White Cloud will make a generous donation to each of the CMN hospitals with winning designs.
I visited the White Cloud Facebook page and selected this design as my favorite:
I love this design because the palm trees and dolphin remind me of my home state of Florida. Plus, I like how the designer added a little verse to the drawing. So cute! And here’s another reason to vote for your favorite design: Fans who vote will be offered a chance to enter into a sweepstakes. Three drawings will be held for $25 Walmart gift cards throughout the voting period. At the end of the voting period, three grand prize winners will be selected to win a one-year supply of White Cloud products. It goes without saying that we could all use that! Also, you can gain additional entries into the sweepstakes by sharing a link to the contest with your Facebook friends.
I can’t think of a better cause than helping sick children and their families through the Children’s Miracle Network. I hope you’ll join White Cloud’s efforts to support them by visiting their Facebook page today and voting for your favorite design. Better yet, get the children involved. Tell them about this partnership and let them help you vote. This is a wonderful way to teach our children how to “give back.”
