The Most Essential Item for a Happy Holiday Season

The Most Essential Item for a Happy Holiday Season

Every year, there are thousands of children in Canada who need to stay in hospitals over Christmas—and there are also thousands of people working hard to make sure their Christmases are as magical as possible. One popular way to do this is through toy drives, and many hospitals are fortunate to receive donations of new toys for their playrooms and to give to little patients. But what good is a toy if it doesn’t work? As all parents know, batteries are the unsung hero of Christmas morning. The coolest toy in the world isn’t much good without the batteries to power it.

Thankfully, Duracell believes in powering kid’s imaginations just as much as they believe in powering, well, everything else. Which is why for the 10th year in a row, Duracell will be donating a year’s supply of batteries to hospital playrooms across the country—so kids can play not just over the holidays, but all year long.

In addition to providing children’s hospitals across the country with batteries, Duracell has also made it super easy for Canadians everywhere to get involved. All you have to do is purchase a pack of Duracell batteries at Walmart between now and the end of December, and Duracell will donate to Children’s Miracle Network. Simple. We know batteries are inevitably on every parent’s holiday shopping list—so why not make a conscious choice when out shopping this month and pick a brand that gives back? (One of our handiest parenting hacks is to pick up an extra package of AAA and AA batteries every holiday—one more than you think you might need. Then we can be sure there are no battery emergencies—and no sad little faces.)

Duracell has set themselves a goal to raise $150,000 dollars—so you better get to shopping! Help them power up kids’ toys, and their smiles, this holiday season.
