#PowerSmiles and the Holidays with Duracell this Season #Giveaway

Each year, thousands of children and their families spend time in Canadian hospitals over the holidays. To help ensure kids can still be kids, and enjoy the magic of the season even in the midst of illness, Duracell will be donating a year’s supply of batteries to hospitals across Canada. These batteries will be used to power the thousands of playroom toys and games that children and their families will be playing with this holiday season and beyond.

In addition, for eQuantum Batteriesvery pack of Duracell Quantum and CopperTop batteries that Canadians purchase at Walmart from December 1st to December 31st, 2014, Duracell will donate 20 cents to Children’s Miracle Network, with the goal to raise $150,000. To learn more about the campaign follow @Duracell on Twitter.

We all know there’s nothing more disappointing than a child receiving a toy on Christmas morning to find that it’s powerless. With your purchase, not only will you be powering your family’s holiday joy, you’ll also help make a child’s hospital stay a little brighter.



We have all been there either as a child or a parent. The perfect gift is unwrapped and everyone is excited to try it out. Just to realize that SOMEONE forgot the batteries. Don’t let that someone be you! 

Recently Hasbro sent us a Transformers: Age of Extinction Chomp and Stomp Grimlock to power up with some Duracell Quantum batteries. This great toy is sure going to be a hit in my house! (Age: 5 years and up, Approximate Retail Price: $89.99)

Your 20-inch Chomp and Stomp Grimlock figure is a giant robot with a mighty sword whos ready to take on any enemy. He changes in 1 step to a dino with a terrible, chomping jaw and light-up eyes! Power Battlers and One-Step Changes figures (sold separately) activate different lights, sounds and weapons, and his weapons pop out for battle!



This holiday season when you are out shopping for the perfect gift, remember the batteries! Everyone will be glad you did 🙂
