Growing up we hear repeatedly, “it’s the thought that counts.” In the moments when others reach out with small gestures or thoughtful words, we recognize the truth behind this phrase. There was a rough patch in our lives when we lost a baby during the second trimester. As I had been a stay at home mom for so long, the “work family” mentality was new to me. There were two girls in particular that I had instantly bonded to when I started working and they were there for me with meals for the family and gossip magazines to help me take my mind off of things. I was given orders to sit down, relax and catch up. It felt so incredibly good to have people help out with the everyday things so that I could heal physically and mentally.
In the midst of the hustle of the holidays, don’t forget to pause and remember to share the little things like a Kleenex Care Package. There’s nothing worse than being down with a cold or the flu. This always seems to happen in our house when we’ve run out of Kleenex and our noses pay the price with toilet tissue until either (1) I am healthy enough to get to the store or (2) a family member stops off on their way home from work to purchase some for me/us. The softness of Kleenex tissues is a simple gift that shows others how much you care. It’s so easy to grab an extra box or go online and order your free Care Package and it could make the world of difference to someone else when they are feeling out of sorts.
Kleenex is giving us the opportunity to make the care complete with a Kleenex Brand Care Pack. All we have to do is visit a local retailer, purchase a specially marked Kleenex brand bundle pack and redeem the code on the box! To redeem, simply visit Kleenex.com and follow the directions to send your Care Pack to someone that needs a little care. Check out Kleenex’s Facebook page for more information.
I wrote this review while participating in an ambassador program by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of the Kleenex brand and received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
