Aflac has teamed up with Macy's to offer the perfect holiday present: limited edition plush Holiday Ducks, which benefit pediatric cancer treatment and research. The 2012 Aflac Holiday Duck is very special – it was designed by Monica Sandoval, a 16 year old who has been battling leukemia for four years.
This little Holiday Duck is darling. AND, he's the Aflac Duck, so you know he makes the ever-familiar “Aflac…Aflac…AFLAAAAAAAC” sounds…and if your kids are like mine, they'll be pressing his back over and over and over in perpetuity (for what it's worth, this little dude's batteries are going strong and we've had him for about 8 days already). This is a cute little holiday duck- and holiday decoration- and buy purchasing, you'll help Aflac and Macy's in the fight against pediatric cancer. One fun purchase does a good deed. I like that kind of holiday giving!
For every tweet with the #AflacKids hashtag, Aflac will donate $2 directly to pediatric cancer research! Please feel free to retweet my tweet or create your own!

About the Aflac Holiday Duck:
Aflac has teamed up with Macy’s to offer the perfect holiday present: limited edition plush Holiday Ducks, which benefit pediatric cancer treatment and research. All net proceeds go toward pediatric cancer treatment and research at the participating children’s cancer facility nearest to where each duck is sold. Since 2001, the sales of the Aflac Holiday Duck have raised more than three million dollars.
This year, Aflac held a contest among the patients at the Aflac Cancer Center in Atlanta to determine who would design the 2012 Holiday Duck. Sixteen year-old Monica Sandoval, from Winder, GA, was the winner. Monica, who has battled leukemia for 4 years, is thrilled to have had her design selected and hopes that everyone will be inspired to purchase the 2012 duck to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer.
The Aflac Holiday Duck retails for $10 for the 6-inch duck and $15 for the 10-inch version. The Aflac Holiday Duck is available at over 600 participating Macy’s stores across the country and at www.aflacholidayduck.com. All net proceeds go to fighting pediatric cancer.
