Aflac and Macy's Partner to Fight Pediatric Cancer This Holiday Season #AflacKids

Looking for a cute stocking stuffer idea this year, that keeps on giving?  Then, why not consider picking up the Limited Edition Plush Aflac Holiday Ducks, which are available at Macy's?  Aflac has partnered with Macy's to offer the infamous "Aflac, Aflac, Aflaccccc!" duck, to benefit pediatric cancer treatment and research. "All net proceeds go toward pediatric cancer treatment and research at the participating children’s cancer facility nearest to where each duck is sold. Since 2001, the sales of the Aflac Holiday Duck have raised more than three million dollars"

"This year, Aflac held a contest among the patients at the Aflac Cancer Center in Atlanta to determine who would design the 2012 Holiday Duck. Sixteen year-old Monica Sandoval, from Winder, GA, was the winner. Monica, who has battled leukemia for 4 years, is thrilled to have had her design selected and hopes that everyone will be inspired to purchase the 2012 duck to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer."

I was sent their 6" inch duck and fell in love with this little guy, who come decked out in holiday scarf and antler earmuffs.  Doesn't he look cute?  Now, who wouldn't want to see the Aflac duck peaking out of their stocking come Christmas morning?  And, when you push his belly, he lets out his famous Aflac yell.  Savannah couldn't stop pushing his belly and giggling.  Now, even though I was growing tired of hearing "Aflac, Aflac, Aflaccccc," I couldn't help but smile, knowing that each purchase of the Aflac Holiday Duck would go directly to finding cures for pediatric cancer, along with necessary research.  Knowing this, I was able to bear an hour long chant from the Aflac duck! :-)

In addition to purchasing the Aflac Holiday duck from Macy's, in either 6-inch (for only $10), or $15 for the 10-inch version, Aflac will donate $2 directly to pediatric cancer research for every Tweet you send with the #AflacKids hashtag!  So, before or after you pick up this limited edition Aflac holiday Duck at your nearest Macy's, make sure you take to Twitter and share a tweet.  You will not only be making that someone in your life happy when they see the Aflac duck this holiday season, but you will be helping raise awareness about pediatric cancer, all while raising money for research and treatment.  It is the gift that keeps on giving!!!!!
