I have received information and products from McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNeil-PPC, Inc., the makers of TYLENOL®. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks.
I clearly remember the day my first daughter was born nearly 9 years ago. I held her in my arms, kissed her forehead and promised that I would be her protector and her champion….forever. I also remember how helpless I felt the day she got sick for the very first time. Unable to tell me what was hurting, I wished that I could take the pain away and see her beautiful smile.
I thought that sicknesses would get easier to deal with as my daughter grew and she could communicate to me and the doctors exactly what was wrong. But, I think it broke my heart even more when my little one begged for me to “make it better.” While I did everything I could, sometimes germs win even if for a few days and my normally happy go lucky kid turned into a sad sack of sickness.
After suffering through several rounds of ear infections with both my daughters, I longed for the day when the pain subsided and those perfect smiles surfaced once again. While the antibiotics did their job, we turned to Tylenol ® to ease the pain. For more than 50 years, the makers of Tylenol ® have been helping to bring “feel better” smiles to generations of children.
And now, through SMILING IT FORWARD, Tylenol ® aims to collect 100,000 smiles in order to help the 85,000 low-income urban and rural children who are served by Children’s Health Fund each year. Want to help, too? Between now and January 31, 2014, simply upload a photo of your children flashing their pearly whites on SimilingitForward.com and Tylenol ® will make a $1 donation to Children’s Health Fund which helps to ensure children in need can attain a doctor’s visit. With the smile uploads, a minimum donation of $75,000 and a maximum donation of $100,000 will be made.
I know the relief every parent feels when they finally see that long awaited smile on their child’s face after an illness. Now, you can make that smile count by #SmilingItForward!
