NORTH HILLS, Calif., Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Munchkin, Inc., leading designer and manufacturer of clever infant and toddler products, today announced the re-launch of its successful "Pail it Forward" social media campaign in an effort to reward loyal fans and help nonprofit organizations this holiday season. The month-long viral campaign, which Munchkin debuted last year as a way for fans who love the company's award-winning ARM & HAMMER Diaper Pail to gift one to a friend, features a new, extra dose of holiday cheer this year―a donation of nearly 500 diaper pails and other babycare essentials to organizations helping babies and children in need.


"We know parenting can have its challenges, and it's often the little things that make the biggest difference, so we are excited to re-launch 'Pail it Forward' to help families in need receive  products that our Munchkin fans tell us they can't live without," said Steven Dunn, chairman and CEO, Munchkin, Inc. "This fun campaign celebrates the giving spirit of the holiday season by gifting the ARM & HAMMER Diaper Pail—a must-have product voted as #1 in odor control by parents all across the U.S.—to both our fans and parents who could use a helping hand."

Munchkin fans can "Pail it Forward" now through Dec. 31 in four simple steps on the Munchkin Facebook page:

  1. Like the Munchkin Facebook page.
  2. Upload a photo of themselves or their baby with their ARM & HAMMER Diaper Pail to Munchkin's page.
  3. Write a caption to accompany the photo that shares why they love their pail or why their friend deserves to receive a pail.
  4. Tag the deserving friend in the photo to nominate them to win one of the Diaper Pails given away each week. All fans who participate will also be entered to win one of 10 Munchkin prize packs containing key safety, care, nursery, travel and feeding essentials.
