I'm snapping an #UltraHug selfie for Arthur Elementary to win them a $2k grant from Huggies!

I'm nominating Arthur Elementary for the $2k grant from Huggies Snug N Dry!  Our city has many elementaries spread throughout the town, which means that most of them have a smaller student population from towns with only one or two elementary schools.  They tend to be more blessed when it comes to extra money for playground equipment and renovations.  My children go to Arthur and I love taking my younger two to the playground to play.  Unfortunately I have to be constantly on guard when they are playing on the equipment because all of the equipment has wood chips
underneath.  And after it rains, the few wood chips there are, are mixed in with lots of mud- this means I can't take the kids at all.

There are parks located throughout the town, but it is nice for families to be able to take their children to the nearby elementary to play.  It's within walking distance and your kids don't have to fight for a turn on the slide.  It's a free and healthy way to get kids outside playing and unplugging from technology for awhile.

What I would like to use this grant for is to purchase shredded rubber playground mulch to put under the equipment.  This will help alleviate scraped knees, splinters, being impaled by wood chips and the icky muddy mess.  It would set my mind, and other parents' minds at ease as we watch our children play.  I've been to schools that have this mulch and it is fantastic!  I would love to see this on the playground at Arthur Elementary!!

Do you have a place in your local community that you would like to see get a $2k grant from Huggies Snug and Dry Ultra?  If so, here are the details:

From April 20th until June 25th, Huggies will be accepting all selfies of you and your baby with the hashtag #UltraHug, and featuring them in a collage on the campaign landing page. On July 6th, voting will begin to narrow down the 20 finalists to 10 winners who will win a $2,000 grant from Huggies for their nominated community initiative.

  1. Arthur Elementary really needs the shredded rubber playground material. The wood chips are a disaster!
