It's party time!! Shespeaks Twitter Party

Did you know that approximately 12,000 cases of pediatric cancer will be diagnosed this year in the United States?  You can make a difference today to help stop childhood cancer – and it’s a great time to get involved.  September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month and Aflac needs your help to kick off their newest campaign to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer research – while having a little fun doing it.

Starting September 1st, when you dive in and join the Aflac Duck to Swim With Friends by donating $12 to fight pediatric cancer, you’ll receive a rubber duck and an entry to win a family vacation for 4 to Orlando – plus, Aflac will match your $12 donation! Then, watch the virtual duck race on Aflac’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/aflacduck on Tuesday October 9th at 12pm ET to see if your duck will win the race and the vacation!  You can find out more about Aflac’s commitment to fighting pediatric cancer here.  Official rules for the race can be found here.
