Kleenex sponsors sweepstakes for healthy schools, kids

DALLAS — Starting today, April 17, Kleenex brand, the only facial tissue with Sneeze Shield in all of its tissues, according to the company, is giving three schools a chance to win 250,000 eBoxTops for the 2013-2014 school year through the Kleenex brand in the Classroom sweepstakes.

To enter, teachers, school administrators and parent volunteers should visit TeacherLists.com and create a school list that includes Kleenex brand tissue with Box Tops, and then choose a school to be eligible for the prize. Three winning schools will be chosen at random on or about Aug. 1, 2013, to receive 250,000 eBoxTops each, the equivalent of $25,000.

"As the only facial tissue that participates in Box Tops for Education and the only one with Sneeze Shield in all of its tissues, the Kleenex brand remains committed to healthy schools and healthy kids," said Martin Soderlund, Kleenex brand manager. "This year, we are taking that support one step further by giving three schools the opportunity to win 250,000 eBoxTops simply by adding Kleenex brand tissue with Box Tops to their back to school list. It's a small step that can make a big change for the winning schools."

The Kleenex brand is committed to education year round and is the only facial tissue brand to participate in the Box Tops for Education program. Look for Box Tops coupons on Kleenex brand facial tissue, including 160-count and 210-count everyday tissue and Kleenex brand 112-count Anti-Viral Tissue.

Through Box Tops for Education, the Kleenex brand gives households with school-age children the opportunity to earn cash for their child's school," said Berit Morse, Box Tops for Education manager. "To date, the Kleenex brand has contributed more than $13 million to schools nationwide, which has been used to help fill the gaps in school budgets, including the purchase of computers, text books and other essential learning tools."

And now, Kleenex brand tissue is thicker and more absorbent, giving teachers even more reason to add it to the list. Kleenex brand tissues come in a variety of portable and convenient on-the-go packages, making it easy for moms to help keep stuff off their kids' hands wherever they go:

  • The Slim Pack: It is thin and sleek, so you can always keep a tissue on hand. Their trendy design makes it the perfect accessory for hip tweens and teens, while their convenient size makes it easy to slide them into pockets, back packs and bags;

  • The Car Wedge: It fits perfectly in the car door or glove compartment — no need to lug around a box of tissue or fumble in a purse for a tissue while driving; and

  • The Go Pack: Strong, soft and absorbent, Kleenex brand Go Packs have been there for happy tears and stuffy noses since 1924.
