Do you know someone who is like the Energizer Bunny? Someone who, despite challenges or unfavorable odds, pushes through with energy and optimism? Someone who keeps beating that bass drum, long after you think that battery has GOT to run down?
If you do, Energizer wants to know. In fact, Energizer and Cal Ripken, Jr. are looking for nominees for their Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame. It was started in 2006 as a way to honor everyday people for the energy and perseverance they show in their daily lives, no matter what challenges they might face. The search is now on for the 2009 inductee, who will earn a $10,000 cash prize and a $5,000 donation to his or her favorite charity!
When I was approached about publicizing this opportunity, my first thought was that nearly all of us moms could fit that bill. How many times have we dug deep and found the energy or the patience or the courage to go on, despite our obstacles? Moms just keep beating that drum, no matter how tired they are from changing diapers or reading “Goodnight Moon” ONE MORE TIME or helping a third grader put together a costume of Alexander Graham Bell or rocking a feverish preschooler or teaching Sunday School or commuting to work in a blizzard or volunteering at the school carnival or sitting through baseball tournaments or reminding kids to practice the piano…or all of the above.
Despite the fact that most moms display these characteristics at one time or another, some people seem to just shine brighter than the rest. If you know someone whose name is interchangeable with the Energizer Bunny, someone who shows enthusiasm, perseverance, and a positive approach no matter what, visit the Energizer Keep Going Hall of Fame site and nominate him or her. But HURRY because nominations will close after March 31!
