Childhood cancer is one of the most horrific things I have ever watched my friends battle. Thankfully, Aflac is passionate about the fight against childhood cancer!
Aflac has been supporting the fight for more than 20 years now and is inviting you to get involved this holiday season through their #Duckprints Campaign!
Build Your Own Balloonicle, where you can create your own Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloonicle, featuring the beloved Aflac Duck! Best of all, when you share your game experience on social media with hashtag #Duckprints, you will help generate a $2 donation toward children’s cancer treatment and research (up to $1.5 million!) at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
Just because the parade is over, doesn’t mean that you can’t still participate!
To get started in this awesome pay-it-forward game, simply visit www.aflac.com/parade to build your own balloonicle and play…then don’t forget to share on your social channels!
When you play and share, it’s likely that your friends and family will also play and share, therefore increasing both donations and awareness, with the ultimate mission of eradicating childhood cancer.
Please help me help my friends who have kids with cancer! One has a 10-year-old boy who is fighting against leukemia. He has experienced many, many rough days and is still fighting two years later. It’s heart-wrenching to watch friends battle this horrible disease.
For more mobile fun, download Duckchat, an Aflac app (on Apple iTunes App Store or the Google Play Store) with Aflac Duck emojis and GIFs. Aflac will also donate $2 (up to $1.5 million) with each download.
What are you waiting for? Leave YOUR footprint in the fight against childhood cancer!
