MADISON, N.J. — Pfizer Consumer Healthcare on Monday teamed up with actor and active volunteer Josh Duhamel for the Advil Relief in Action campaign, which features the #ReliefinAction Pledge on Facebook and a Mobile Relief Center tour making approximately 100 stops throughout the country.
“Growing up, my family was always volunteering, so I learned early on the importance of communities coming together to help one another,” Duhamel said. "It wasn't until I started organizing events for disasters in Haiti and Japan, and then again in my hometown of Minot, N.D., that I truly understood and appreciated the tireless and tough work of volunteers. To me, the Advil Relief in Action campaign means knowing that others are counting on you, and doing whatever it takes to help. That includes not letting pain get in the way of giving back.”
Partnering with Points of Light, Advil was an Official Sponsor of this year’s National Volunteer Week, which took place April 6-12. Josh Duhamel was on hand to kick off the Relief in Action campaign for National Volunteer Week by volunteering to help clean up Franz Sigel Park in the Bronx with New York Cares, an affiliate of Points of Light’s HandsOn Network, on the group’s annual New York Cares Day Spring.
Advil and Duhamel are also rallying consumers to commit to helping others by taking the #ReliefinAction Pledge on Facebook.
To bring relief to active volunteers throughout 2014, Advil is conducting a cross-country tour of the Mobile Relief Center. With approximately 100 stops from smaller local efforts to large-scale volunteer events, the Mobile Relief Center Tour stops will have relief on hand with the Advil Wall of Relief featuring Advil product samples, water bottles and other products to provide relief to volunteers.
