Iams Home 4 The Holidays & Hilary Swank Aim To Place 1.5 Million Pets Into Homes This Holiday Season!
By Guest Blogger, Donna DeClemente, Donna's Promo Talk
Last week I started my annual blogging related to holiday promotions with this post about the Sephora Claus Twitter promotion. So as promised I'm continuing with the holiday theme, however, the program I'm blogging about this week takes on a much more serious tone. Iams is back with their Home 4 the Holidays (IH4TH) program and needs help to place 1.5 million pets into loving homes by January 4, 2010! With many pet lovers as readers here I thought this would be a great place to spread the word.
Last year, the program’s goal of helping 1 million pets get adopted within three months was outdone when 1,202,701 pets were placed in homes — including Rumi, adopted by two-time Academy Award® winner and 2009 IH4TH ambassador Hilary Swank. You can watch an appearance of Hilary Swank on Ellen speaking about the program here on YouTube.
With the Feed Pets in Need program, Iams is offering to bring much needed food to Home 4 the Holidays participating shelters by asking visitors to IH4TH.COM to simply cast a vote. Each month, for the next 13 months, the shelter with the most votes gets a month’s supply of free food!
Iams is also sponsoring the Life's Better Sweepstakes which is giving away thousands of prizes to help pets get the most out of life. Part of the promotion includes a $10,000 donation in Iams food to the Home 4 the Holidays participating shelter of the winner's choice.
So check it out and feel free to spread the word. This is a great way for a brand to raise awareness of themselves while giving back to the communities.
