BURRILlVILLE – 7-Eleven Stores and gas stations have partnered with Buckleupallofus for summertime child safety, displaying coloring fun activities and safety posters across the region starting this month.
Thousands of, “Kids in Hot Cars,” and, “Stay Hydrated, Drink Plenty of Fluids,” coloring posters are being distributed at 7-Eleven locations in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, reminding everyone about summer safety and injury-prevention.
Of course, Bucky will also be reminding everyone about child passenger and buckle up safety at the same time. He is reminding kids about safety with his little buddies, the Itty Bitty SUPER DUPERS cartoon characters. Kids just love the Itty Bitty SUPER DUPERS and their popularity is increasing dramatically with youngsters and even teenagers across the region.
7-Eleven is distributing the safety coloring cartoons with attached coupons for their Slurpee frozen drinks. After they color in their safety cartoons, kids can redeem the images for a Slurpee, and many will be chosen to go on display inside the convenience stores.
This is all part of an award-winning kids safety campaign titled, “Seasons of Safety.” The popular campaign is now being utilized by Massachusetts based non-profit organization, Children Across America, as a creative educational and awareness platform taking the cartoon characters and safety initiatives to millions of kids and families across America. CAA will start expanding the effort in California as one of their first chapter states, bringing the safety campaign to families on the west coast.
Enjoy coloring in these Buckleupallofus and Itty Bitty SUPER DUPERS summer safety coloring cartoons, kids. Don’t let your crayons and colored markers melt!
