SC Johnson Launches Happy Thanksgathering and Contest

In my opinion, celebrating holidays are only fun and joyful when we celebrate it with our friends and family. It was no surprise for me to see that the recent consumer survey done by SC Johnson mentions that 45 percent of Americans would skip certain family traditions like Thanksgiving if they had to spend it alone.

The survey indicates that nearly half or 46 percent of Americans who have spent a major fall or winter holiday away from their family do so because of financial limitations. As we all know travelling during the holidays can be costly. The usual average cost of holiday travel between November and January within the states is about $560, which limits people from travelling for a holiday. Two in five Americans in the survey have said they will not be home with their loved ones for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Since one in five or 19 percent said they would skip the holiday entirely, SC Johnson a family company wants to help families spend the holidays together. They are making this happen for a group of military personnel stationed in Norfolk, Virginia by sponsoring a U.S. Navy Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) event. They will be flying in the families of active duty men and women to spend Thanksgiving with their loved ones and enjoy a variety of activities.

SC Johnson has launched the Happy Thanksgathering™ that gives families who might not be together this holiday season the chance to gather, to give thanks and to celebrate. Until Wed, Nov. 25, consumers can visit for daily chances to enter a sweepstakes to win a $1,000 "Help Me Get Home" Visa rewards card to put toward a trip home this holiday season. They also have the option to enter a second sweepstakes for the chance to win a $250 "Help Me Host" gift card to help pay for a holiday feast with loved ones.
