This time of year, parents often need to treat their child's cold and flu symptoms, and many times, those symptoms include fever. In fact, a recent survey of doctors showed that fever is the #1 reason parents call their child's pediatrician's office. The good news is that nothing reduces fever faster(*) or keeps it down longer(+) than Children's Advil®. Children's Advil® is offering parents a fun way to tap into families' creative energy and spend some quality time together while supporting a worthy children's cause.
"As a mom of three young children, I know firsthand that fevers can sometimes get in the way of childhood fun," says Ms. Harmon. "The 'Relieve My Fever' Contest gives parents and kids a chance to have some fun together for a good cause."
To enter, parents can visit RelieveMyFever.com to find easy-to-follow instructions, lyrics, music and a sample video that will help them create and submit their own little superstar's video performance.
As part of the contest, the makers of Children's Advil® will donate $5 for every entry submitted and $1 for every vote cast to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals®.(**)
