This summer, we’ve been enjoying fun activities in the morning before nap time. Our favorite activity (besides swimming) is to visit Magee Park across the street from our neighborhood. We’ve been visiting this park since before we moved into our new house. It’s a quiet and peaceful park and when the kids aren’t enjoying the swings or slides, they are eating a snack at the picnic tables or playing in the brook. Spending the morning at the park is one of our favorite activities.
This month, I have partnered with Huggies, our favorite diaper brand for Cole, for the #UltraHug campaign. You, my wonderful friends and followers, will also have the chance to win a $2,000 grant from Huggies to benefit a local community project that youenominate in an #UltraHug selfie. Click here to learn how to win a $2,000 grant. This can be your favorite local park, the playground where you take your kids, or any local community project that needs some love! When I was considering which park to nominate, the choice was very clear – Magee park where we play regularly.
From April 20th until June 25th, Huggies will be accepting all selfies with the hashtag #UltraHug, and featuring them in a collage on the campaign landing page. Click here for more details. On July 6th, voting will begin to narrow down the 20 finalists to 10 winners who will win a $2,000 grant from Huggies for their nominated community initiative.
So, why did I nominate Magee park? While I’ve been super impressed with the cleanliness of Magee park, there are some items that need love. For example, there is a broken swing in the toddler area, and the picnic tables are getting a little run down. $2,000 would go a long way for this beautiful park. It’s such a gorgeous, safe, and peaceful place to bring the kiddos, and I would love to help them continue improving the area via the #UltraHug grant.
We already have some amazing memories from this park. It’s the first place Cole enjoyed a swing, or met some new friends. The first place he got completely muddy from the brook, or learned how to go down a slide. I’ve also enjoyed some spontaneous workout moves at this park (I’m sure you’re not surprised). Magee park is the perfect location for me to bring the kiddos during the day when we get cabin fever at the house.
What places in your community do you look back on with nostalgia? Or, what places do you and your family currently enjoy hanging out just appreciating each other’s company?
As they say, “the best things in life are free”, and this applies to many of our local parks, playgrounds, beaches, and rec-centers. These places bring us so much joy, and now it’s time to give back with Huggies!
Nominate your community project by uploading a selfie of you and your baby to Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #UltraHug. In your story make sure to share why the local community project you selected is important to you, and how it will impact those in your community.
