Help Energizer Preserve America's National Parks



Aren't you glad the powers that be averted a government shutdown two Fridays ago? Had the White House and congressional leaders not been able to agree on a deal to fund the government through September, many government employees would have been furloughed and quite a few services would have been suspended, such as passport processing, tax refund processing, small business loan approval -- and our national parks would have had to close.

Fortunately the shutdown was averted, and families can still visit national parks and monuments just in time for spring break! My family and I have enjoyed many happy times in the various national parks we've visited, and I've always said that I think Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park is the most beautiful place I've been in the world.



I applaud any organization who supports national parks, which is why I'm happy to blog about Energizer's efforts, along with the National Park Foundation, to power and preserve America’s national parks. 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.

Here's how you can help:


Collect Energizer codes and redeem for a $10 gift card or donation to the National Park Foundation


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.


Join a 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. Click here to RSVP to the event:



Help Energizer donate $400,000 during 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.




Join a National Park Volunteer Event
People who prefer to get more hands-on 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.



Vote to decide which National Park to clean up
Go to facebook.com/energizerbunny and help 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.


Visit www.nowthatspositivenergy.com/blogs or facebook.com/energizerbunny to see how they can get involved in helping to preserve America’s national parks.



Help spread the word and enter to win a $10 Target gift card
Energizer is providing a $10 Target gift card to one lucky Bonggamom Finds reader!
