Say Yes to Less
Have you heard of Little Remedies children's medicine? Maybe not, but I'm sure you've heard of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Perhaps some of you have even experienced the work of this organization firsthand. Well, Little Remedies has partnered with actresses and celebrity moms Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley to launch the "Say Yes to Less" campaign to benefit Make-A-Wish.
Beginning last month, Little Remedies started encouraging their customers to log on to www.SayYes2Less.com and take a pledge to "Say Yes to Less" of the things their children don't need in order to live happy and healthy lives. According to a recent press release, families can pledge to do things such as eat less sugar or create less waste. In return, Little Remedies will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish for the first 100,000 people who take the pledge.
"We're huge fans of Little Remedies and we both use the products with our own kids, so we're thrilled to be working with the brand on the 'Say Yes to Less' campaign," said Mowry-Hardrict. "Taking a more wholesome approach to raising our kids is something we feel passionate about, so we're excited to ask other parents to join us, and to see how families across the country will 'Say Yes to Less,'" said Mowry-Housely.
As the official spokespersons for the pledge, Tia and Tamera will appear in a series of videos featuring families who personify the Little Remedies philosophy, "Everything They Need, Nothing They Don't," by casting away doubt, fear, negativity, and wastefulness from their lives. The stories are inspiring and motivating as these families share how they were able to conquer the obstacles that were blocking the way to their own health and happiness.
"Make-A-Wish helps make life better for children with life-threatening medical conditions," said David Williams, president and CEO, Make-A-Wish America. "Through our alliance with Little Remedies, we hope to inspire families everywhere to 'say yes to less' of the things their children don't need and focus on small things they can do to make their lives better."
Created by a father and pharmacist who grew tired of searching for products for his children that were effective, but were also made with ingredients he could feel good about, the Little Remedies brand provides parents with effective products to support the wellness of their children,. The products range from natural remedies, to medicine-based items that feature only the necessary ingredients. That means there are no artificial flavors, artificial colors, alcohol, saccharin, or dyes. Period.
As I said, Little Remedies will donate up to $100,000 to Make-A-Wish, $1 and one pledging customer at a time. After pledging to say yes to less, consumers then have the option to continue their commitment for up to 30 days by returning to the website to "check in" and confirm they are indeed following through with their pledge. After a key number of check-ins, consumers will be rewarded for their efforts with badges that are seen on their pledge page, and they will receive coupons for Little Remedies products.
This is a win-win program for everyone involved. So what are you waiting for? Click here to make the pledge... and make a difference. Come on! Let's show them that the Green Grandma community really cares!!
I'm counting on you,
