I Don’t Want To Miss….A PSA contest….

Written by lyricsmama on March 8, 2009 – 12:31 PM -

Getting the flu is no fun, especially if you’re an active, social teen. All the things you miss out on once you get sick, to a teen, is just DEVESTATING!!! That’s why Brook White, a former American Idol finalist has teamed up with Dr. Harley Rotbart the author of Germ Proof Your Kids and also an infectious disease specialist, as well as the Clorox Company to bring you I Don’t Want To Miss… This is a national contest that brings teens into the know and encourages them to learn and speak about flu education and prevention.

The main focus of the program is a PSA contest to which teens can submit a short 45-60 second video entry to the website idontwanttomiss.com. They can share what they wouldn’t want to miss out on and why flu prevention is important to them because of it. This gives some teens some creativity as well as teaching them about flu prevention.

For the first time this year, the CDC expanded flu vaccination guidelines to include all children six months through 18 years old. However, a new national survey shows that only 16% of parents with teens are aware of this new recommendation.

The winning contestant will win an acoustic concert from former American Idol finalist Brooke White at his/her school! The second place winner will receive a guitar autographed by Brooke White herself, and three runners-up will win autographed photos.

Don’t miss out on this PSA contest, get your teen involved. Visit idontwanttomiss.com to enter or to check out more details.

Say "BOO!" to the Flu

Written by lyricsmama on October 29, 2008 – 11:18 AM -

Often times around here you see me doing a lot of product review posts for Mom Central. Well this time they have decided to do a blog tour for a charitable cause, a non-profit organization called Families Fighting Flu. This organization is made up of parents who have lost a child to the flu.

With the cold and flu season right around the corner I know my house is already full of coughs, sneezes, sniffles and groans as I’m sure your family household is as well. A a family we do not opt in to do the flu vaccines as we’re all healthy and I’d rather they be used for those who really need it. That being said there are a lot of families out there (ours included) who need to be educated about the importance of flu prevention this time of year.

Families Fighting Flu has partnered with the Say “Boo!” to the flu program to help bring flu prevention education to families across America. Part of the program involves Visiting Nurse Associations of America hosting different flu vaccination events across the country which encourage those families who need it to get vaccinated.

The program’s website www.saybootoflu.com brings helpful flu prevention tips, videos and activities to help kids (and families) learn about preventing the flu by washing their hands and other helpful tips like how to teach your children about germs. They also provide vaccination information related to your local area should you opt to get vaccinated.
