Energizer celebrates National Park Week (GIVEAWAY ends 4/29)

I love everything about outdoors,especially parks.  What a special time to spend with your children, teaching them about nature and exploring everything Mother Nature has given us.  I am honored to be posting about something that has a lot of meaning to me - our National Parks.

Energizer has teamed up with the National Park Foundation to launch a public effort to power and preserve America’s national parks. Helping to launch the program is outdoor enthusiast, Peter Facinelli of The Twilight Saga and Nurse Jackie. The program brings awareness to the importance of preserving our country’s greatest natural resources and gives people a number of ways to get involved.

National Park Week
From April 16 through April 24, the country celebrates National Park Week. Not only can everyone receive free admission to all national parks this week, but people can also text BUNNY to 27722 to trigger a $1 donation from Energizer to the National Park Foundation, up to $50,000. Energizer’s goal is to donate $400,000 to the National Park Foundation this spring, and the public can help them get there.

Product Purchase
Right now in stores specially-marked Energizer products contain a special code so when someone buys three participating products, he or she can go online to Now Thats Positive Energy and redeem the codes for a $10 reward toward a national park adventure or elect for Energizer to donate the reward directly to the National Park Foundation.

Get Hands On
For the people who prefer to get more hands-on, they can RSVP to join a now that’s positivenergy™ national park volunteer event by visiting Now Thats Positive Energy or Energizer Bunny's Facebook Page and clicking on the Parks tab. While there, visitors also have the power to select one of the park recipients through an online vote, which runs from Monday, April 18, through Friday, May 13. Each park hosting an event will receive a grant from Energizer and a donation of responsible power solutions including solar panels, chargers, batteries, solar lights and other lighting products.

I love this one "volunteers are invited to join us at the Arlington House at Arlington National Cemetery to participate in a two-hour event to help preserve your local park’s beauty for future generations."
