Jennifer Garner! (What a great choice, huh?)
This afternoon Jennifer will introduce Frigidaire’s new line of appliances, designed with features that help us Moms save time in our busy schedules, and challenge us to pledge a bit of our own time to help children in need. Frigidaire’s new "Make Time for CHANGE" campaign supports Save the Children’s U.S. Programs, dedicated to making a difference in children’s lives.
Frigidaire and Garner are asking Moms to think ahead to November 1st – the day all of us change the clocks and get an extra hour – and pledge to use that time to help make a difference in the lives of children. Save the Children created the CHANGE program (Creating Healthy, Active, and Nurturing Growing-up Environments) to promote healthier lifestyles for children living in poverty by providing nutritious snacks and regular opportunities for them to be physically active.
Starting today, everyone who goes to Frigidaire.com and raises her hand with a pledge to make time for a child, will commit Frigidaire to donate $1 to support the CHANGE. As an added bonus, everyone who pledges her time will be entered for a chance to win a new Frigidaire Professional double wall oven.
Mom Central also has a Frigidaire Professional double wall oven to give away to a member of their Mom Central Community!*
To enter to win, simply go to http://www.momcentral.com/reviews/frigidaire-giveaway-and-celebrity-ambassador.html and tell us about your pledge and how you would give back your time to children in need. Mom Central will pick one lucky winner in a random drawing from all entries received!
Will you pledge?
I plan on pledging! My pledge would be to volunteer at the local women's shelter (where I lived about 10 years ago!) as a care provider while the residents have one of their meetings. I've always wanted to give back to the shelter for all they have done for me, but don't have the time!
So, what's your pledge? Head over to Mom Central to enter your pledge and possibly win!
