With the sites and smells of spring in the air I really get the itch to get outside and enjoy the beauty of nature. From the newly blooming flowers to the buds on the trees to the birds singing in the morning, it's a beautiful time of year. In fact, it's the perfect time of year to celebrate some of nature's most beautiful gifts to us, our National Parks.
Protecting and preserving our National Parks is a national responsibility. We want them to remain in all their beauty for our future generations to be able to enjoy. So Energizer has teamed up with the National Park Foundation to launch a public effort to power and preserve America’s national parks. Here is a little bit about all the cool things they have going on this week.
Helping to launch the program is outdoor enthusiast, Peter Facinelli of The Twilight Saga and Nurse Jackie. The program brings awareness to the importance of preserving our country’s greatest natural resources and gives people a number of ways to get involved.
Live Facebook Chat with Peter Facinelli
Peter Facinelli fans can chat with the actor and outdoor enthusiast on Wednesday, April 20 at 1 p.m. EST. To participate in the chat, visit the Parks tab on the Energizer Bunny Facebook page. Here is a direct link to RSVP to the event:
National Park Week
From April 16 through April 24, the country celebrates National Park Week. Not only can everyone receive free admission to all national parks this week, but people can also text BUNNY to 27722 to trigger a $1 donation from Energizer to the National Park Foundation, up to $50,000. Energizer’s goal is to donate $400,000 to the National Park Foundation this spring, and the public can help them get there.
Right now in stores specially-marked Energizer products contain a special code so when someone buys three participating products, he or she can go online to www.nowthatspositivenergy.com/blogs and redeem the codes for a $10 reward toward a national park adventure or elect for Energizer to donate the reward directly to the National Park Foundation.
Get Hands On
For the people who prefer to get more hands-on, they can RSVP to join a now that’s positivenergy™ national park volunteer event by visiting www.nowthatspositivenergy.com/blogs or facebook.com/energizerbunny and clicking on the Parks tab. While there, visitors also have the power to select one of the park recipients through an online vote, which runs from Monday, April 18, through Friday, May 13. Each park hosting an event will receive a grant from Energizer and a donation of responsible power solutions including solar panels, chargers, batteries, solar lights and other lighting products.
Energizer is offering you the opportunity to win a $10 gift card to either Walmart or Target.
