Free virtual Comfort Package from Hanes

To promote early cancer and provide mammograms for people in need, Hanes has created a new Facebook app that allows its fans to send virtual comfort packages. For each package sent, Hanes will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.

I tried it!

In order to get an idea of how sending the virtual Comfort Package works, I clicked over and customized one to send to my cousin. After choosing the pink tab, I chose the little note to write a short message. I was going to send the package with just the note, but decided to add music and a t-shirt – even adding those was a piece of cake. There were about six t-shirts and songs to choose from so it wasn’t overwhelming or difficult.

The info behind the idea

The premise behind the comfort package is this: Do you know how you have a favorite sweatshirt or shirt that you get comfort from? Well, Hanes realized that comfort can also come from memories, music and words of encouragement. Now you don’t have to go to the store (online or IRL) and you don’t have to pay to send that type of encouragement. And this comfort package will bring the same smiles and comfort to your friends, fans and family on Facebook.

In their words: “The Comfort Package is fully customizable with photos, videos, recipes, T-shirt designs, music and messages. Sending a Comfort Package is one of many gestures that can brighten someone’s day and help provide support and comfort to a loved one.”

It’s your turn

So, why don’t you brighten someone’s day and support a good cause? Go to Hanes Pink Facebook now? I’m going to go back and send some more.
