I'm SMILING IT FORWARD because, having six children I can well remember the feeling of waiting for that first smile that tells you your child is beginning to feel better. I am sure you moms can recall a time when one of your little, or not so little, ones was down with a cold, flu or some other illness. They get droopy, listless and they lose their smiles. I could always tell looking into my children's eyes that they were not feeling well because of that glazed look. And of course I knew they were feeling better when I saw them smile again. SMILING IT FORWARD!
The makers of TYLENOL® were so inspired by the “feel better” smiles shared organically by moms across the country online that they’ve teamed up with How I Met Your Mother star and mom of two, Alyson Hannigan, to launch the SMILING IT FORWARD™ campaign. Together, they hope to set the power of giving in motion, inviting everyone to share smiles of good health to help children in need.
SMILING IT FORWARD™ makes it easy for people to join the movement. By sharing a photo that makes you smile at SmilingItForward.com, TYLENOL® will make a $1 donation to Children’s Health Fund, helping to ensure a doctor’s visit is always within reach for children in need.
In addition to sharing photos at SmilingItForward.com, moms can go on the site to view the TYLENOL® Smile Gallery, learn more about Alyson Hannigan and Children’s Health Fund, and receive tips from leading pediatrician, Dr. Tanya Altmann, about keeping families smiling through cold and flu season.
Now, seeing their first smile after they had been feeling ill always made me smile, but my children make me smile anyway. I have a 12 year old who can make me smile anytime I'm feeling down. She is still at that carefree, silly stage in life where she doesn't get embarrassed easily, and she loves to make me smile. So, I am going to share one of my favorite pictures of her that makes me smile on SmilingItForward.com and I would like to encourage you to do this also. Take a minute and share one of those special moments that made you smile and start SMILING IT FORWARD. I shared a couple of my favorite making me smile photos here to share with my neighbors!
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing you again, At the Fence!
