Sharing Surprises #KleenexCares

It's the time of year, the season of sniffles and sneezing.  We've already had a few ourselves so I try to always have some Kleenex tissues in my purse...just in case.  With all the time we spend outside in this chilly weather even otherwise healthy noses can end up runny.  And I've been happy to help out a other moms at football practices with my purse pack of tissue.

Unfortunately others we know have already suffered worse than a cold.  One of the boys on Timmy's football team ended up with Pneumonia (or ammonia as Timmy told me).  This is the littlest guy on his team and he didn't get a whole lot of playing time.  But Timmy was still upset to hear that his teammate was sick.  He immediately asked if we could get him a get well card.  We didn't really have time to get a card before we'd see him but I DID have the Kleenex Care Package. 

Timmy felt like he'd really done something for his friend.  Me, knowing it probably made his mom feel better than him.  It was great knowing my son cared and worried for his friend.  I just wish we could have done more to help knowing that this teammate's mom is about to have a baby any day and dealing with a sick 5 year old sounds exhausting and overwhelming!  But I hope that this very small act at least brighten their day just a little.
I'm not looking forward to this cold and flu season but I try to be thankful because I know that we usually have it easy.  Several years ago the older boys had a horrible bought of rotovirus that they passed back and fourth for almost 4 weeks.  So every year we don't deal with anything like that I thank my lucky stars.

And don't forget to take a few Kleenex tissues with you as you trick or treat this week.  I can't tell you how many Halloween costumes ended up with snotty sleeves.  Looks like it will be a chilly one here this year so I'm sure there will be runny noses aplenty.

Kleenex brand, America’s softest tissue, knows that the moments of unexpected thoughtfulness make all the difference.  Kleenex brand will give consumers the opportunity to make the care complete with a Kleenex Brand Care Pack.  It's as easy as 1, 2 3!  Purchase a specially marked box of Kleenex Brand tissue.  Find the code and enter on line.  Then share the Kleenex Brand Care Pack!

  1. That care package looks really great. I could use one of those this week. The tissue box has been my best friend so far this week! I hope Timmy's team mate feel better for the final game!

  2. I love that Timmy gave a care package to his friend!!! It's such a sweet gesture! I am sure the friend's momma appreciated it!

    I need to find a Kleenex care package or two! They would make great "get well" presents!

  5. I almost never create remarks, however I read
    a few of the comments here "Sharing Surprises #KleenexCares".
    I actually do have some questions for you if you tend
    not to mind. Is it only me or does it look as if like some of these responses look like they are coming from brain dead visitors?
    :-P And, if you are writing at additional sites, I'd like to keep up with you. Would you list of the complete urls of all your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
