Give Thanks for Your Healthy Child

(by guest blogger Dawn A. Crawford, Communications Director at the Colorado Children’s Immunization Coalition)

Healthy Kids Thanks-A-Thon LogoWe often don’t think about our family’s health until someone gets sick.

The Colorado Children’s Immunization Coalition (CCIC) wants to change that. Inspired by the spirit of the season, CCIC invites you to join us in giving thanks for healthy kids!

CCIC works to protect children’s health by ensuring that kids are vaccinated at the appropriate ages to prevent common childhood diseases. Our mission is the same as yours: Keep kids healthy!

How can you give thanks? Tell us why you are grateful for a healthy kid! It’s easy and it’s a great way to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season!

This Thanksgiving season, the Colorado Children’s Immunization Coalition (CCIC) has created a simple and free way for parents and others to share their gratitude for healthy children with the CCIC Healthy Kids Thank-A-Thon.

Parents, grandparents and parents-to-be are encouraged to submit to the Healthy Kids Thank-A-Thon website gratitude statements, photos, videos, and blog posts explaining why they are grateful for a healthy child.

From these submissions, CCIC will spread the gratitude for healthy kids all Thanksgiving weekend (November 26 – 29) by tweeting parents’ and grandparents’ submissions on Twitter, creating a video for YouTube, and sharing the love on Facebook.

How to Participate:
• Visit the CCIC Healthy Kids Thank-A-Thon website to tell us why you are grateful for your healthy child. We encourage you to include a picture of your family or a video of your healthy child.
• Spread the word to co-workers, patients, neighbors, and friends by posting this info and forwarding this blog post

All submissions are due Monday, November 23.

Make sure to join CCIC for the Thanksgiving weekend in sharing gratitude for all our healthy kids.

Have a wonderful holiday season!
