Children’s Hospital At Erlanger Asks For Supporters To Vote For Them For Toy Delivery From Mattel And Fisher-Price

Friday, November 15, 2019
In just a few minutes and on any internet-enabled device, supporters of Children’s Hospital at Erlanger can help the region’s only pediatric hospital win a delivery of toys donated on behalf of Mattel and Fisher-Price. 
 
Beginning Nov. 15 and lasting through Dec. 4, Children’s Hospital Association is partnering with Speak Now for Kids to launch their second annual digital toy campaign.  By visiting Spread Joy with Toys and selecting Children’s Hospital at Erlanger in Tennessee and including an email address, each nomination will take Children’s Hospital at Erlanger one step closer to winning hundreds of toys to be distributed to patients throughout the year.  
 
“We encourage all Chattanooga-area residents or those who have benefitted from its services to nominate Children’s Hospital at Erlanger,” said Lois Simpson, senior child life specialist.
“A gift of toys, any time of the year, means so much to our patients.  Toys can be used as a distraction during treatment, a way to brighten a day or even as a present during a holiday or a birthday.”  
  
The campaign will be promoted throughout the next few weeks on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook with tags @speaknowforkids and #SpreadJoywithToys.  All voters for Children’s Hospital at Erlanger can also spread the word by sharing the information on their own social media accounts.  
 
I voted! Now you can help put a smile on a child’s face. Help spread cheer by giving our kids @ChildrensatErlanger in Tennessee a chance to win @Mattel toys. #SpreadJoywithToys @SpeakNowforKids! http://bit.ly/SpreadJoy2019
