According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, washing your hands is one of the most important things kids and adults can do to keep from getting sick and spreading illness.
Did you know that mothers are the number one influencers in teaching children to wash their hands? I remember my mom always telling us to wash our hands. We sang the ABCs, while washing – just enough time to wash the dirt and germs away.
To help us in our efforts to teach our children about hand washing, Dial Complete foaming hand wash has launched the Campaign for Clean Hands, a program designed to engage and educate families about the importance of proper hand-hygiene.
Dial Complete brand’s Campaign for Clean Hands
The centerpiece of the Dial Complete brand’s Campaign for Clean Hands is an informative Web site – www.campaignforcleanhands.com – that features a Campaign for Clean Hands video contest for kids. Your kiddos can submit a 15-to-30-second video telling the world “Why Clean Hands Are Important.”
At the campaign headquarters you can also find an online “DC Germ Blaster” video game, as well as a variety of fun, educational hand washing materials that you can print and share with your children, including a home hand washing chart, coloring and activity sheets, bookmarks and a memory game.
The site also features a sweepstakes where you can enter to win a year’s supply of Dial Complete foaming hand wash. Head over and enter and then come back, because you can win a case of Dial Complete foaming hand wash right here!
