Back in June of this year, Children's Health Fund (CHF) and Clorox, along with New York Times best selling author Bethenny Frankel, launched Check-in for Checkups, a social media-driven campaign that challenges America to make healthy choices that benefit themselves and their families, while simultaneously contributing to the lives of others. Each time you “check-in” at http://www.checkinforcheckups.com/ or tweet the hashtag #checkinforcheckups Clorox donates 10 cents to CHF, up to $100,000.
We set off with the goal of reaching 1 million check-ins before the end of 2011, and we knew we needed a ton of support in order to reach this ambitious goal. It’s only been 4 months, and we’re already more than half way towards our goal! We’re overwhelmed by the response from all of you who have checked-in your healthy habits. Whether it’s going for a 30-minute walk after dinner, switching to nonfat milk or getting a little more rest each night, all of these check-ins are making you and your families healthier and are helping the lives of homeless kids across the US.
From all of us at CHF, THANK YOU to Clorox and all of you who have checked-in thus far. And for those who are reading about this for the first time, it’s not too late to pledge to make one small, healthy change today and check it in to make it count twice. With your help, we will easily hit our 1 million check-ins goal and the $100,000 generously donated by Clorox will help us provide more check-ups for homeless and poor kids around the country.
