It never fails. The kids get sick just when it’s time to (fill in the blank). You know, the school play, the family vacation, etc. I don’t understand WHY this seems to happen, but it does.
I remember when Ben was little and the ONE thing that he HATED missing was soccer. He played on both the indoor as well as the outdoor Spring leagues and he would get SO upset if he got sick and had to miss a game.
Last year, Clorox instituted the I Don’t Want to Miss Contest and it was SO SUCCESSFUL that they’re relaunching it again this year. This year, they’ve got Danny Gokey (remember him from American Idol?) onboard!
In 2010 the program features a contest that invites school musical groups, like glee clubs, choirs, etc. to produce a video performance of a song written by Berklee College of Music student Will Wells on what they don’t want to miss out on if they were home sick and why prevention is important. The winning school will win a music class led by Danny.OMG, how cool is that?
PLUS – for each entry submitted, The Clorox Company will donate $100 (up to $10,000) to the Sophia’s Heart Foundation, a charity founded by Gokey in honor of his late wife, Sophia, and dedicated to helping children achieve academic success via musical training and restoring musical dreams in children.
With flu season here – remember that it’s important to get your flu shots PLUS – DON’T FORGET to clean surfaces and WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN!
To learn MORE about this great contest – check out the Clorox FACEBOOK page beginning January 28th.
